Edit Search Profile

To edit a search profile:

  1. Click the Search Using My Saved Profiles link located on the Search and Reports main menu, or click the Save this search criteria as a profile command button from the any ORPS Search pages.

    The ORPS Saved Search Criteria screen will be displayed.

  2. Highlight the search profile you wish to edit and click the Edit command button. This will take you to the Specify New Database Search Criteria or the OR Number Search page where the previously saved search specifications are displayed on the page. On either of these pages, you may edit any of the field selections that were previously saved with the profile.

    Editing Field Selections

    You may specify different or additional search fields by selecting (or deselecting) fields (displayed in the Identification, Chronology, and Narrative selection boxes). You may also specify different or additional search fields by modifying the statement in the Boolean logic specification edit box. Note that any entry in the Boolean logic specification edit box will override selections made in the Identification, Chronology, and Narrative selection boxes. Click the Refine command button when you have made your selections.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Any editing of field selections will delete the screening criteria that is saved with your search profile.

    Editing Screening Criteria

    Click on the Screen command button at the bottom of the Specify New Database Search Criteria page to make modifications to your screening criteria. This will recreate the ORPS Screen OR Search Criteria page, which will reflect the currently selected screening criteria. From here, you may make modifications (i.e., include or exclude additional occurrence reports). Note that any changes you make here (e.g., you deselect an excluded record) will only be saved if the search profile is resaved, either with a new name or the same name. For more information on screening criteria, go to ORPS Screen OR Search Criteria.


    Excluding

    The Excluding section on the Specify New Database Search Criteria page allows you to exclude certain types of reports. Cancelled reports are excluded by default (note the check mark in the Cancelled check box). You may also exclude UCNI and USEC reports, which are included by default. The exclusions specified on the Specify New Database Search Criteria page are saved with the search profile and used when generating reports.

    Exclusions are identified by a check mark in the associated check box.

    exclusions

    If you wish to see what exclusions were included with the saved search profile, simply select the profile, mark the Use saved criteria check box, and click the Display criteria command button in the Reports section of the control panel.

    When a search profile is edited, the exclusions that were saved with the profile are reflected on the Specify New Database Search Criteria page. Changes made to the exclusions at this point will only affect the current selections, but will not alter the exclusions stored in the search profile -- unless you save the changes in a profile with the same name (in essence, you are overwriting the original search profile).


    ES&H Impact

    Note: This historic field is used only when performing searches on reports created prior to the ORPS redesign, and prior to the creation of the Department of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), which superseded ES&H.

    This narrative field provides an assessment of the environment, safety, and health consequences and implications of the occurrence and description of the impact of the occurrence on the environment, safety, and health of workers, the public, and onsite/offsite environs. This field is required for all Final Occurrence Reports.

    To specify values for this field, first highlight it on the Specify New Database Search Criteria page. Then click the Refine Search and Specify Values command button. Specify the text using the ES&H Impact edit box shown in the image below. Within the edit box enter single words or words/phrases, combined with text operators. What you specify in this edit box will be used to search the ES&H Impact text.
