ideas universal file format

Is there a reference anywhere for the universal file format. I would like to import some results into the post that are created with some homegrown code and combine with NX results.

In the online documentation. Search for "Universal File". Or, navigate to Home > CAE > Advanced Suimulation > Advanced Simulation fundamentals > Importing finite element data > I-deas universal files.

This source includes some "newer" incarnations of the IDEAS Universal file format.  For example a binary format rather than ascii is also described.
