An LNC file is a file used in Football Manager games to alter some of the game's data without the need for a data editor. These files are filled with simple instructions and can be edited with a text editor, such as Windows Notepad.

Unlike DDT files, LNC files can have an impact on existing saved games. LNC files must be saved to the "data\db\[version]\lnc\all" folder.
