Resubmission from the Form that Wraps each Plot and Table

Each plot or table that you make comes wrapped in a resubmission form. This provides a quick way to ask for the same data in a different form (plot, table or sum and average).

You can modify the most recent range selection or the setting of how to handle invalid data directly from this resubmission form.

If you want to make any more complex changes before resubmitting the query, the "edit query" button feeds the current parameters back into the Advanced Interface to Plots and Tables.

Bookmarking Your Favorite Plots and Tables

When you submit a query from one of the standard interfaces, your submission options are turned into a URL that uniquely specifies your selection of data names, range, etc. Because all of the information is contained in the URL, you can use your web browser to bookmark that page. Any time you return to that bookmark, the page will be regenerated.

If the range type you selected had the form "Last...", for example, "Last 14 Report Dates", the resulting output will always show the latest data. It may not be the same data you saw when you first bookmarked that page some days ago.
