Ancestry told me today that it was scheduled to roll out on the 6th but they had a issue with it and are fixing that. Expect that within the next couple weeks they should be able to fix it and roll out the download.
When it rolls out Go to your DNA home page then click on manage test settings that page should have the link to download the raw data. I was told you would be able to look at it in Excel or another spreadsheet program. I think that means it is going to be a CSV file format but it may be in a zip file.
We also discussed the need for a way to search for a userid in the matches or sort by the userid. I was told many customers have asked for some way to filter the matches like that and they know it is needed. I expressed my feeling this should have a high priority as I have spent over an hour just trying to find a match when they respond to a message.
