ADC_Keywords: Abundances, [Fe/H]; Stars, dwarfs; Stars, late-type Abstract: This file contains mean values of [Fe/H] (with rms errors) for 495 F-K stars which are on or near the main sequence. Literature references are given for the contributing values of [Fe/H]. Introduction: In addition to Papers V and VI, this catalog draws on a review paper by the author on the SMR problem. If a star of interest for that problem appears without a value of [Fe/H] in Paper V, it is listed in the review paper and is also listed here with a designation "V." For all but two of these stars, mean values of [Fe/H] are given here. For the exceptions (HD 3765, HD 32147), low-resolution data suggest that [Fe/H] is substantially higher than published high-resolution results indicate (see the review paper). File Summary:

Note on com: 1 The D index is smaller than predicted from [Fe/H] (see 19941994PASP..106..600T) 2 [Fe/H] may be below the catalog limit (see 1994PASP..106..590T) 3 See reference 221 for an alternative value of [Fe/H] 4 A reference 221 datum is included (compare refs. 221 and 570 for HD 155885/6) Note on m_BD/HD: For binaries: "A" if primary, "B" if secondary. For single stars: "V" denotes VSL star or possible SMR star, and "C" denotes a comment
