How to export the summary file with the PX Submission Tool?
For some bulk submissions or for Aspera upload the summary.px file can still be generated and exported with the PX Submission Tool, although the files won't actually be uploaded with the tool itself.
When using the PX tool there is an "Export Summary" button that you can click after you have done the mappings and that will export the summary.px. It is necessary to have all the files available in a folder so this folder will be used to supply all the file names. But the data won't be actually uploaded, only the summary file exported. See screenshot.
You don't have to start the actual file upload that way. You can send that small file to the database curators via email and upload the files via Aspera.
