Hello again.

Just wanted to follow-up on a couple of things. The spreadsheet is separated into tabs, and the tabs are named with abbreviations, but I do not know what they stand for. Is it possible to give descriptions for each tab? Was also wondering if these 4 fields of data are the only data you track? I am generally used to seeing more data in RTK/FOIA logs. I understand if this is the only data you track, but if you also track any data identifying what each request topic, target or just a general description of what the requester was searching for/requesting, I would also be interested in that data. Finally, was this data exported?

Thanks very much,
Shawn Breen
