explains the general format of the data file. In case you did not do anything 
special, the GZIP variant is used in your installation. See 
http://docs.kde.org/stable/en/extragear-office/kmymoney/details.formats.compressed.html for some more details.

Hope that helps.

p.s. Playing with the contents of the data file is not recommended and you are 
on your own. Keep backups. You have been warned ;)
