IFS and IMF Data require a free online registration/sign in. You can view the IFS and other datasets without registering, but you only save and download data by registering. Registration includes confirming the account by responding to an email message from IMF including copying and pasting a code. Not completing registration will allow a one-time only use of IFS and the other datasets. The primary reason users can't access IFS and other datasets a second time is because they did not complete the registration process.
