Whereas the '''Summary''' tab of the ''synopsis page'' provides statistics, the '''Details''' tab allows you to filter the validation results according to the results of the various validation analyses. Note that you may also access relevant information in the '''Details''' tab by clicking on a specific validation issue in any of the tables in the '''Summary''' tab.
The results acessible by the '''Details''' tab are organized into a table where each row contains information regarding a single ''validated molecule''. Which table columns are filled depends mostly on the state of the filter bar above the table (see description in the next paragraph). The most important columns are ''Id'', ''Issues'', ''Missing atoms/rings'', ''Atoms'', ''Processing warnings''. The other columns give additional information, usually helpful in identifying the source of the error in the structure. The column ''Id'' refers to a unique identifier assigned to each individual ''validated molecule'' in order to keep a straightforward track of the molecule's origin. The ''Id'' contains the PDB ID, as well as the serial index of the first atom in the corresponding ''input motif'' as it appears in the original PDB entry. The column ''Issues'' reports the number of validation issues found for each particular molecule. The column ''Missing atoms/rings'' explains which atoms are missing in each validated molecule, whereas ''Atoms'' shows the position of incorrect chirality. ''Missing atoms'' are listed by their atom identifier in the ''model'', whereas atoms with wrong chirality are listed by their identifier in the ''validated molecule''. Clicking on a column header allows to sort the validated molecules according to the property specified in the header. Validated molecules where a ''processing warning'' was encountered are marked in
orange. For further explanation, please refer to the sections on [[ValidatorDB:Terminology | terminology ]], [[ValidatorDB:Principles | principles ]] and [[ValidatorDB:Database_contents | database contents ]].
As already mentioned, the content of the table depends on the filter bar above the table. The validation reports available in the '''Details''' tab of the ''specifics page'' are organized by annotation (3-letter code). You can easily navigate between reports by selecting the annotation of interest in the leftmost drop down menu in the filter bar under the tab names (above the table). Only the table rows with results for the molecules that were matched to that annotation will be displayed. You may further refine the filter according to the validation issue you are interested in (e.g., wrong metal chirality, missing a specific atom, containing substitutions at a certain position, etc.). Pick the issue of interest from the corresponding drop down menu in the filter bar. Only the table rows with results for the molecules which exhibited that particular issue will be displayed. Whenever you pick something in a drop down menu of the filter bar, the number of molecules that fit your selection is given in brackets. If you want to make your selection even more specific, use the ''Id filter'' at the right of the filter bar.

3D viewer implemented in the [[ValidatorDB]] interface offers one step further in the analysis of each individual validated motif, and is accessible via the '''Details'' tab on the specifics page . In the table, simply click on the Id of a motif of interest in order to open the 3D viewer, where you can inspect the structural inaccuracies more closely. Here you will be able to view and manipulate with the 3D representations of the validated motif and model residue, to help you better assess the position and relevance of the structural issues found during validation. Additionally, a 2D representation of the model is provided for clarity, which is especially helpful for larger motifs. Basic information about the validated motif is also given, along with a complete report of the validation results, where all the potential issues are listed.

The validation reports in ValidatorDB also mention various unusual aspects encountered during validation. Sometimes the processed PDB entries contain information that is ambiguous, conflicting or which deviates strongly from the expected reference. [[ValidatorDB]] reports such events as processing warnings. Such information can be found in the '''Processing Warnings''' tab on the specifics page. The selection field at the top of the page helps filter the warnings for different residues, in case more of them are in validation report. Simply click on the drop down menu and select the category of warnings that you would like to explore. Processing warnings are issues that may cause incorrect Validation, such as bad two residues being too close together (misused concept of alternate conformations) or unusual bond lengths given by the CONECT records. Make sure that negative validation results (e.g., missing atoms) are not in fact caused by ignoring some atoms in an ill-formed structure.
Overally a processing warning may simply lead to ignoring a faulty atom, but the motif is validated.
