Building a Customized Processing Status Table

The Processing Status Tool enables users to create customized reports on the processing status of Chandra observations.

The physical format of the reports may be regular HTML, tab-delimited ASCII, or RDB.

The content format of the reports may be chosen from a set of standard reports or may be arbitrarily customized.  For a description of all status fields and information on what is included in the standard reports, see  Chandra Observations Processing Status Fields page.

Where appropriate, links are made to V&V reports if they exist. 

The observations to be included in the reports may be selected by specifying Selection Criteria for up to nine particular fields. The default for all selection criteria is "all selected".

"Order By" allows the user to order (sort) observations in the report by particular fields.  One can use up to 3 ordering criteria.  Default is  ("Obs Date", "None", "None").

To build your custom report:

- Select physical report format.  The default is HTML; select tab-delimited or RDB if desired.

- If you wish to place some or all of the columns in the output table in a particular order, select "Column numbers" for the columns you wish to arrange.  Any columns for which column numbers are not specified will be placed in the output table automatically. (If you specify the same column number for more than one field, all of the columns will be arranged automatically.)
- Select the field name check boxes for the fields (columns) you want to view in the output table. Only the selected fields will appear in the output table.  For an explanation of the fields, see Chandra Observations Processing Status Fields.

- If you wish to view a particular subset of observations, specify Selection Criteria for the appropriate fields. The default for all selection criteria is "all selected."
- Press the Submit button
