Blood Tests

I recently had some bloodwork done because a few yrs ago a doctor I was working for said I tested possitive for Lupus. Well, I was mailed a copy of the blood test results, but I don't have a clue as to what the results are showing. Here is what's on the report. If anyone can help me out w/ this I would certainly appreciate it. It says: Anti-nuclear Antibodies, IGG Screen W/Reflex IFA
Anti-Nuclear Ab, IgG by ELISA detected
***Any ANA IgG, "Detected" by ALISA will be confirmed by IFA and reported seperately upon completion.***
Test Information: Anti-Nuclear Ab(ANA), IgG specimens are screened using an ELISA assay. All  specimens that screen positive or equivocal are confirmed using HEp-2 cells, and if positive, the titer and pattern will be reported.

OUT OF REFERENCE RANGE
Anti-Nuclear Antibodies, IGG Screen w/ Reflex IFA
Anti-Nuclear Ab, IgG by ELISA Detected.

So what does this mean???? Because over in the far right of the paper it says None Detected. I don't understand. One side says Detected and on the other it says None Detected. What's going on here????
