    Selected occurrence reports may be distributed based on one or more of the following data fields: Singificance Category, Cause Codes, ISM, Nature of Ocurrence, Operations/Field Office, HQ Keywords, Area Office, Contractor, DOE Secretarial Office, Facility, Activity Category, Facility Function, Subcontractor Involved, Report Type, Occurrence Category, Contributing Cause(s), Root Cause, Direct Cause, or Discovery Year/Quarter. Field names marked with "B" pertain to data entered prior to the ORPS redesign. Field names marked "A" pertain only to data entered on or after the ORPS redesign.

    An ORPS Distribution Report distributes records by taking the results of your search profile and separating them into the category or categories you specify.

    Note that the bottom of the Distribution Report contains hyperlinks to represent the information Graphically.

    To incorporate a graph into a document, click on the graph with the right mouse button and select Save Image As from the menu. Saving the graph as a GIF file will allow you to insert it as a picture into a Word document or Excel spreadsheet.

    The Data link presents the information in a format that is easy to “copy” and “paste” into a spreadsheet application (e.g., Excel) to create additional (and possibly more sophisticated) graphics reports. This table contains the count of occurrences and reports for each of the major categories in the distribution, along with the category identification. To print the report, choose Print from the File menu. Follow the prompts on the Print dialog box for your local network printer. An example of an ORPS Distribution Report is shown in below:
