My apologies for the slow response, but I was away from the
office for about a week.

I'm not certain I understand what you are attempting to do. Based
on this description, I infer you are trying to define a bad pixel file
for a spectrum and use that in sherpa. Correct?
If my understanding is correct, I do not think that approach will
work. At least, I am not aware that sherpa can handle bad pixels defined
in that manner.
I'm looking into what ways exist to define bad pixels.

I am unaware of any such detections. Could you send me a list?
Are the bad columns in the Level 2 data?
