Variable star index

Today I learned how to copy the id number and paste it on the variable star index. Most of the the time I get no information from the stars. I set the search parameters for var. type. Am I doing something wrong? Steve-1759 provided me with a link about a star and the index showed the star. But when I copied and pasted the id number myself, it didn't give the information.

In many cases the KID / KIC number is not going to be listed on VSX, except for a few targets that have study papers out or made it into the Admin's limited KID release last year.

Click on 'MORE' in the VSX query screen and use the the RA / Dec co-ords supplied on MAST for your target. You can sort those results by angular separation in ascending or descending order.
