The program can be used to check whether the ADES astrometry in the upper edit area is syntactically correct by automatically submitting the batch to the MPC's Validating ADES-2017 PSV Formatted Observations service.

Note: This procedure does NOT submit the astrometry for normal processing by the MPC, it simply tests the validity of a submission in ADES-2017 PSV format.

The ADES text must be saved as a text file before validation, so after pressing Parse and Convert, then Save text as file, click the drop-down arrow on the Submit button and select validate then press the send button to pass the batch to the MPC for validation.

If the batch is OK "Submission format valid" will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.

If the batch fails validation, an appropriate error message describing the problem will be displayed instead.
