Fainter than observations upload

Hello everyone!
I would like to send a few observations to WebObs taht are "fainter than" mganitudes. I have tryied to write "<17.3" in stra's magnitude column, but in upload revision page it says "17.3". How could I upload those observations without using individual upload? Is it possible to send them inside a file and if yes, how?

Have you looked at the AAVSO File Format Specifications page?

Here is the link:  https://www.aavso.org/aavso-file-format-specifications

Do you have an example of the file you created? You could attach it to your post.

I did not see the column "faint" on file revision page. There is where my confusion came from - magnitudes are without "<" indicator. Thanks for help!

If you were submitting an individual magnitude, this page shows how:

There is a check box to indicate that the magnitude is fainter than the magnitude value you write in the box.
