Full_Name: Haritma Gaur

I am using "efluxer" task to extract the fluxed spectrum. In the help provided
in the following link:
http://xmm-tools.cosmos.esa.int/external/sas/current/doc/efluxer/node3.html 
shows that this task generate an X-ray spectrum in physical units
(erg/cm$^{2}$/s/keV vs keV). while when I am generating the spectra, the header
of the spectrum fits file shows the units of flux in erg/cm$^{2}$/s.

Please let me know what are the correct units of the flux and its error in
efluxer task in SAS.

thanks.

Dear Haritma Gaur,

The documentation is correct, the units of the output spectrum (flux and errors)
are erg/s/cm2/keV. 
The error is in the output file header produced by the efluxer task released
with previous versions of SAS.
The bug has been fixed in the last release, SAS 16.0.

    Kind regards,
        Lucia
