Hi, I uploaded data on GJ 436 and got no errors or warnings. If I search on my code SAJB it finds the data. However, if I search on GJ 436 it's not included in the list. Also if I cut and paste the star name into the search on my code again it does not find it.
I assume I have made an error somewhere but I can't find it.
Thanks for any advice.
I'm going to email you off-list so we can discuss your data to find out what the problem is.

Thanks I look forward to hearing from you. Regards Andrew
I have also found another strange behaviour. If I search for HAT-P-16 I get the error message "Star HAT-P-16 not recognised. However, mine and several other observes data has been passed to the NASA database and it is recognised by for example SIMBAD.
I just did a search with your observer ID and got an observation for HAT-P-16 on 2023-01-04 and one for GJ 436 on 2023-03-03. Were there other that should be there as well?
Hi Dennis, yes there should also be 2 WASP-12 results from 14th Jan and 18th Feb. All 4 show when I search on my user ID
Maybe I am misunderstanding the conditions under which you get the error. Let's take this offline and I will loop in George Silvis if necessary to help resolve. Can you email me a screen shot of your exoplanet database search user entries that produces the error. Email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
My understanding from the offline discussion that this was a problem with RA and Dec coordinates being set in the database by the by database during upload.
It still seems to be present. Is there a timescale for fixing it as I would like to do some star based searches and the names are still returned as not a star.
