I am analyzing some data from 2015 and the original postdoc has moved on. The file is named "072312_FinalReport.txt" and has ~197k SNP measurements for 60 people. I have figured out the meaning of all of the columns, except for the last column.

Can someone explain what "SNP" in the last column ([T/G] et cetera) means? I can't find documentation for what this file format is (the "txt" file extension is not very helpful). Thank you!

SNP Name    Sample ID   Allele1 - Top   Allele2 - Top   GC Score    SNP
chr1:109457160  2   C   C   0.8609  [T/G]
chr1:109457233  2   C   C   0.7725  [T/G]
chr1:109457614  2   -   -   0.0000  [T/C]
chr1:109457618  2   A   A   0.5787  [T/C]

UPDATE: In case it would be helpful to have a bigger example here are 30 random rows:

I heard back from Illumina:

"You will need the manifest file in order to determine the SNP. The manifest describes the SNP or probe content on a BeadChip.

Since the data that you have is from an older array the manifest is not currently listed online. In the link below I have sent the manifest file to you."

So the SNP represents the probe content and it is chosen to detect a SNP based on the data in the "TopGenomicSeq" column in the cardio-metabo_chip_11395247_a.csv file provided by Illumina. Thanks!

The last columns are the reference and alternative alleles. For example, for the first SNP (chr1:109457160) see:
