Notes on a New Kind of IES Table
The Coal - All Flows tables are in a new format, slightly different from the other IES tables. This gives the user new options in requesting data, and improved download files.
One difference is that the header for these tables now includes a line showing the sequence of user choices leading to the table, such as this:
Coal > Year: 2011 > Coal (Thousand Short Tons)
Other differences are in files downloaded to Excel. Older Excel downloads from IES begin with 3 header rows, then a blank row, then data. Excel files downloaded from tables in the new format have several more header rows, giving a better description of the data columns. The new Excel header rows have information similar to what you see on your screen when you generate the table in the IES interactive system.
