“Credit report” is same thing as “file disclosure”

Dear Experian,

I have to ask the very dumbest of questions. Is the “credit report” the same exact thing as a “file disclosure,” or is there an editing or account management type of feature in which it is separate from the credit report, which is kept hidden, and is different to the extent that it is accusatory or of a legal workings nature, rather than reporting?
