When you use the ODS, you will be using database views which were purchased from the Noetix company, together with some UVA views which were created here on site.TABLE OF CONTENTS
In order to assist you with using their views, Noetix provides a Help File. You can use this file to locate the data you need and to find definitions of data elements that you do not understand.
The Noetix Help File has been customized to include all the U.Va. custom views in the ODS, as well as the Noetix views. The file will be updated on a regular basis as new views and columns are added to the ODS, and definitions are improved.
