The Astronomical Data Center (ADC, http://adc.gsfc.nasa.gov) has more than 700 catalogs and ~2000 journal tables of astronomical data that are easily accessed using the ADC Table Viewer (http://adc.gsfc.nasa.gov/viewer). This tool encompasses many data view and visualization capabilities such as the sorting, subsetting, and search of data. Additionally, its modular design allows it to leverage the abilities of the other ADC tools such as mission search and sky map plotting (IMPReSS) and the plotting/over-plotting of selected data (CatsEye).

We report on the latest features of the ADC Viewer. This next generation software now empowers the user to upload their own tables, to perform non-trivial column arithmetic, to search regions of the sky using circular (in addition to square) regions and to download their tables in a variety of formats including FITS and tab or comma delimited ASCII text.
