Data Loader extract.csv does not match Database Fields Reference

Good Day.
I did an extract of the 'Accounts' utulizing Apex Data Loader.
Then I went to the SalesForceFieldsReference.PDF
The fields do not match up.
Where can I get an accurate reference of the fields to import and export?
It's not clear what you are trying to accomplish.  Why do you need to know the fields in the Account object?  Exporting the data from the object, if you clicked on the Select All Fields push button, should give you all the fields in the object, but you may not need to import values for all of the fields.

More information would help guide us to a good answer.
I was looking for a document that described all the fields in the tables. The documentatioin in the 1044 page user manual does not match with the exported fields.
For now it's a non issue though. Thanks.
Your extract will include all the customizations made in your organization, the docs cannot describe what they would be.

Thanks.  Yes, I understand - there is no way for Sales Force to document my custom fields. This makes sense !

I was looking for documentation on the existing fields and the existing documentation was not matching to the STANDARD fields being exported. 

However, I have enough to go on now. Thanks.
