I have had ongoing problems when submitting data for some variables with long names. WebObs gives me the following message

"We cannot find a previous chart used for this object. Please enter the chart used."

when I have just submitted data on that very same star and entered the chart not 10 minutes previously.

Here are two examples of stars that cause problems:

SSS 120731:214217-674801

SSS 120725:202916-505847

 

I wonder if it the colon (:) that is causing the problem?

 

This was also reported by someone else in the past. Please could my posting be acknowledged and the issue addressed.

 

Thanks in anticipation

Stephen, I also have noticed this issue when entering certain stars. I think they also have have the long names, but the problem occurs even if I enter by AUID. It highlights in red that I haven't entered a chart for it before, but in fact I have, and do every time, but it just doesn't seem to "remember" this.

One such star is: SDSS J225749.54-082228.7 (AUID = 000-BJS-729)

Hope this "bug" can be resolved!
