How can I download the result of a query?

Once you have entered query constraints into the Archive query interface at http://almascience.org/aq and hit "Search" you will see the results of your query. In order to download the results table and look at it e.g. in Topcat (http://www.star.bris.ac.uk/~mbt/topcat/) or Excel, click with the mouse on "Export Table" and select the appropirate format (e.g. VOTable for Topcat and csv for Excel).

Such queries can also be launched programmaticaly by e.g. running a wget command from the commandline or from a script

wget -O NGC1068.xml "https://almascience.eso.org/aq/?source_name_resolver=NGC1068&result_view=raw&science_observations=&download=true&format=VOTABLE"

Note that this feature does not yet work in combination with the Target List upload. For the latter functionality astroquery should be used.
