Greenhouse Gas Query Builder User Guide
The Query Builder Search searches for data elements using the user's table and column selections and other search criteria.
Follow these five basic steps to search data elements:
- Select one subject area
- Select one table from the subject functional areas
- Select columns from the specified table
- View data
- Enter search criteria and organize output data
The data in this database is classified by the subject area. Each subject area contains data tables, with each data table containing information related to the subject area. You may select only one subject area at a time. A brief description appears for each subject area name to help you determine which data to retrieve.
Click a subject area of your choice. You can search for this with the Search title/description filter. This selection will automatically bring you to Step 2: Choose a Table to get fields. The tables listed are based on the chosen subject area.
You may select only one table based on your subject selection. These tables, which will be used for your output, will change depending on which subject you chose in Step 1.
If you need to modify the output of data in this step, click the Choose a Subject Area header. Otherwise, click a table of your choice. You can search for this with the Search title/description filter. This selection will automatically bring you to Step 3: Select Field(s), which is column headers for the selected table.
You may select one or more columns based on your table selection. These columns, which will be used for your output, will change depending on which table you chose in Step 2. If you need to modify the output of data in this step, click the Back to Step 2 button or click the Choose a Table header.
To select the columns, which will be used for your output, click on the column name’s box. Click the Select All button to choose all the available columns. You can search for this with the Search title/description filter. Click the column’s box again to deselect for output, or click the Clear Selection button to remove all column selections. After you have selected one or more desired columns, click on the Get Data button to go to Step 4: View Data.
The data based on the selected subject and fields displays on the page. Sort the data by clicking the column headers. If you need to modify the output of data in this step, click the Back to Step 3 button or the Select Fields header. Refer to the Step 5 section below for data viewing options.
To create search criteria for each column header, click the Add Search Criteria button. In the pop-up window, choose one column header. Then choose one operator and enter an applicable value for that operator. Finally, click the Add button to create the search criteria. Repeat as needed for each column.
If you choose an operator more than once for a column, only the latest entry will be considered. Click the Remove button to delete a filter for a column.
Once you finish entering the column’s search criteria for the data output, click the Apply Filter button. The data output refreshes with your applied criteria. You may modify any column filter by clicking the pencil icon that appears above the data table.
Click the Reorder Columns button to open a pop-up that lists all the columns in the data table. Click and drag the column names in the order you want the columns to appear from left to right. Once you finish, click the Apply button. The data output refreshes with your applied layout.
To view all or modify the display of columns in the data table in a pop-up list, click the View Fields button. You may search for the columns with the Search title/description filter. Click the column’s checkbox to add or remove the column from the data table. Click the upright arrow next to the checkbox to view the column’s metadata description. Click the Export Field Metadata button to export all selected data columns’ metadata descriptions into a spreadsheet.
After selecting or deselecting the columns to display in the data output, click the Update Fields button. The data output refreshes with your applied columns added or removed.
Click the Save Query button to save the search query for future use. The generated URL can be used to view and share these results. Copy the generated Query URL to the clipboard. Afterward, click the X or the Close button to exit the pop-up screen.

You can navigate the user interface data table by viewing by rows per page and using the data page navigation arrows.
