 1.3  An Overview of the Toxic Release Inventory

 1.3.1       Background

 In 1984 a deadly cloud of methyl iscyaftate Mlled thousands of people in Bhopal, India.
 Shortly thereafter,  there was a serious chemical release at a sister plant in West Virginia.
 These incidents underscored demands by industrial workers and communities in several states
 for information on hazardous materials. Public interest and environmental organizations
 around the country accelerated demands for information on toxic chemicals being released
 "beyond the fence line" outside of the facility.
 1.3.2
The Emergency Planning and Community  Right-To-
Know Act
Against this background, the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act
(EPCRA) of 1986 was enacted.  Hailed as one of the most potent pieces of environmental, -
legislation in 20 years, EPCRA's primary purpose is to inform communities and citizens of
chemical hazards in their areas.  The Act provides for the collection and public release of
information about the presence and release of hazardous or toxic chemicals in our nation's
communities.  The law requires industries to participate in emergency planning and  to notify
their communities of the existence of, and routine and accidental releases of,  hazardous
chemicals. The goal is to help citizens, officials, and community leaders to be better
informed about toxic and hazardous materials in their communities. Sections 311 and 312 of
EPCRA require businesses to report the locations and quantities of chemicals stored on-site
to state and local governments. This helps communities prepare to respond to chemical spills
and similar emergencies.   The goal is to reduce risk for communities as a whole.

Through EPCRA, Congress mandated that a Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) be made public.
TRI provides citizens with accurate information about potentially hazardous chemicals and
their use so that communities can hold companies accountable and make informed decisions
about how toxic chemicals are to  be managed.

Section 313 of EPCRA specifically requires manufacturers to report releases of more than
300 designated toxic chemicals to the environment. The reports are submitted to  the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state governments.  EPA compiles this data  into
an on-line, publicly accessible, national inventory. Many states also make TRI available.
This vast source of data is  widely recognized as a powerful force for environmental
improvement.

Facilities are required to report on releases of toxic chemicals into the air, water, and land.
Additionally, they must report off-site transfers 'of wastes to a separate facility for treatment
or disposal.  Facilities are also required to report on pollution prevention activities and
chemical recycling.  Reports must be submitted on or before July 1 each year and must cover
activities that occurred at the facility during the previous year.

1.3.3
TRI Reporting Requirements
A facility is required to report if it..      •'

             Has ten or more full-time employees; and

       -      Manufactures or processes over 25,000 pounds of the approximately 300
             designated chemicals or 20 chemical categories specified in th'e law, or uses
             more than  10,000 pounds of any designated chemical or category; and

             Conducts selected manufacturing operations in the industry groups specified in
             the U.S. Government Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Codes ,20
   ,    '      .through 39.

Over 80,000 reports - representing billions of pounds of chemical releases - are submitted to
EPA each year by more than 20,000 manufacturing facilities.
1.3.4
Seope of the TRI
TRI is unique in that it marks the first time that the public has direct access to detailed
information about releases of toxic chemicals in their communities. TRI offers an opportunity
for citizens to increase their knowledge of chemical usage in their area and to use this
knowledge to affect community environmental policy and change.                •

The TRI database includes information on:                        \   .

       What chemicals were released into the local environment during the preceding year;

       How much of each chemical went into the air, water, and land in a particular year;

       How much of the chemicals were transported  away from the reporting facility for
       disposal, treatment, recycling, or energy recovery;

       How chemical wastes were treated at the reporting facility;

       The efficiency of waste treatment; and

       Pollution prevention and chemical recycling activities.

-------
TRI provides the first comprehensive overview of toxic chemical pollution from
manufacturing facilities in the-United States.  It is a public "report card" for the industrial
community, creating a powerful motivation for waste reduction.  This annual accounting of
the nation's management of industrial toxic chemical wastes is a valuable source of
information for concerned individuals and communities.  Citizens can use TRI to evaluate
local facilities through comparisons, determine how toxic chemicals are used, and, with other
information, evaluate potential health risks for their community.  Organizations can use TRI
information as a starting point for constructive dialogue with manufacturing businesses  in the
area.

Although TRI offers valuable insight into chemical pollution in the U.S., it is important to
recognize that it also has limitations. For example, TRI covers toxic chemicals released by
manufacturing operations only. Options for expanding TRI to include non-industrial sources
are being studied for future implementation. Reported releases are annual estimates based on
accepted estimation techniques, not necessarily exact measurements.  The amounts reported
could have been released evenly over the course of the year or, possibly, in a single large
burst.  Another important point to consider when using TRI data to consider health affects is
that it cannot be used alone; additional information is necessary to ascertain levels  of risk or
exposure (see  1.3.7).  Nevertheless, TRI provides communities with a  springboard from
which citizens can seek further vital information about toxic chemicals in their area.
1.3.5
Pollution Prevention and TRI
Following implementation of the Pollution Prevention Act (PPA) of 1990, TRI reporting
became even more comprehensive.  Historically, government agencies- and waste generators
have tried to resolve environmental problems using "end-of-pipe" waste management
practices; that is, treating or disposing of waste after it has been created.  Pollution
prevention strategies focus instead on avoiding creation of wastes by redesigning products,
changing processes, substituting other raw materials for more toxic substances, and other
techniques.

With passage of the PPA, Congress adopted as-national policy an environmental hierarchy
that establishes pollution prevention as the first choice among waste management practices.
For waste that cannot be avoided at the source,  recycling is considered the next best option.
A waste generator should turn to treatment or disposal only after source reduction and
recycling have been considered.

Reporting requirements for TRI changed in 1991 as a result of the PPA. Prior to 1991,
facilities were required to report toxic substances released into the environment and
transferred offsite for treatment or disposal. Beginning in 1991,. facilities were also required
to indicate amounts  of chemicals that are recycled,  used for energy recovery, and treated on-
site.  (Energy recovery means  burning the chemical so that resulting heat energy contributes
to subsequent manufacturing operations.) These amounts must be reported for the past year
and the current year, as well as projected amounts for the next two years.  Furthermore,
facilities must indicate source reduction activities that have been implemented.

-------
These changes to TRI will highlight the importance of pollution prevention and encourage
reporting facilities to develop and implement strategies for reducing waste. This new
information will also help the public gauge industry's commitment to improving the nation's
environment.  By working together, businesses and neighboring communities can build on
emerging pollution prevention practices for everyone's benefit.
 1.3.6
Using the TRI
 The Toxic Release Inventory is a rich source of data for a broad-based audience that includes
 manufacturers, environmental consulting firms, trade associations, labor groups, health
 professionals, state and local environmental agencies, Local Emergency Planning Committees
 (LEPCs), and federal agencies.  An important  and growing  user group is concerned citizens
 who, on their own or through organized groups,  use TRI to raise and answer questions about
 chemical releases in their communities.
                                         "                    .              •        v
 Whether the TRI is used to influence local government action, emergency planning, the   •
 education of citizens, or  to spur industry-citizen cooperation, it is clear that it plays an
 important role in understanding trends in environmental releases and chemical waste
 management.                                                .                ;

 The following examples illustrate the way TRI is used by various groups:           •••.--•

       Citizens The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act' (EPCRA) was
       written with.individual citizens in mind, on the principle that the more citizens know,
       the more effective they can be at improving health and safety .by avoiding chemical
       hazards in  their communities. TRI enables citizens to become more aware of toxic
       chemicals in  their own neighborhoods.  It encourages dialogue between  individuals
.       and local companies which can result in a change in  current practices, and improve
       the local environment. .Citizens often-use the TRI data in combination with other
       information sources to explore health-related risks in their communities.

       Businesses Manufacturers can use the  TRI data as a basis for reducing large stocks
       of toxic chemicals located in dense population areas  or to lower levels of chemical
       releases. TRI data is also used to cut costs and improve operations. "Wastes"
       represent an expense-chemical wastes leftover after manufacturing must be managed,
       which may include treatment or disposal or removal  from the facility..  Companies are
       using TRI to increase awareness of environmental business opportunities and, as a
       result, reduce the use of toxic chemicals.  TRI is also used to market a chemical or
       process that is cleaner, safer, or more cost-effective for the reporting facilities.  Law
       firms, real estate  companies, and banks use TRI to identify potential liability issues
       associated with a  particular parcel of. land. Most important of all,  the publicity that
       has resulted from the availability TRI data has caused many companies to voluntarily
       pledge toxic chemical release reductions.  *

-------
       Educators  Academic researchers rely on TRI data to conduct important studies of
       the environment. Several universities use TRI reports to study how chemicals are
       used and to develop alternative technologies for the prevention of toxic releases.
       Increasingly, TRI is being coupled with other data, such as economic indicators, to
       study social policy and economic development.  In the classroom, TRI is a resource
       for students who examine local sources of chemical pollution and prepare toxic waste
       audits on communities or facilities.

       Public Interest Groups  Public interest groups make effective use of the TRI data to
       educate citizens,  prepare revealing company profiles and influence change.  Most
       often, they use TRI to bring public pressure to bear on facilities and public officials.
       In one typical instance, a coalition in Silicon Valley in California used TRI figures
       successfully to cut releases by local industries.  National public interest groups  often
       publish reports based  on the TRI data.  In two examples, a study highlighting the
       nation's toxic polluters and a report naming companies releasing known  ozone-
       depleting chemicals were developed as a result of the availability of the TRI data.
       The TRI data is also vital for presenting a convincing case to influence legislators.
       Public interest groups in Massachusetts figured prominently in the passage of the
       nation's first state toxics-use reduction  law, and many other states have followed suit.

       Labor  Concern for worker safety was a key factor in the original passage of the
       national legislation. Providing workers the right-to-know about chemical hazards in
       the workplace has been a consistent goal of organized labor since the early 1970s.
       For example, one large textile workers union teamed up with a Minnesota community
       and used the TRI data to pressure their company to reduce the use of methylene
       chloride, a known health hazard to the workers, and search for safer alternatives.
       Union members and activists pressured the state for tougher regulations that would
       force the company to  cut emissions by  93 percent. Publication of toxic release data
       often makes it easier for  labor organizations to lobby successfully for safer practices
       to protect workers' health.

       State Emergency Response Commissions (SERCs) EPCRA  requires each state to set
       up a SERC to designate local emergency planning  districts within the state, and
       coordinate activities and review plans of the local committees. The SERCs serve as a
       liaison between the state and EPA and  provide the forum for  coordinating all Title III
       information (although another state agency may be designated to collect TRI data).
       Each SERC works to  ensure that its state programs are integrated with the federal law
       to strengthen enforcement.  It provides leadership, coordination,  technical assistance,
       and training - working closely with the LEPCs - to help individuals and  organizations
       meet their responsibilities under the Act.

-------
      Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) EPGRA required each SERG to
      establish LEPCs to develop and periodically review emergency plans to prepare for
      and respond to chemical emergencies.  By law, LEPCs include representatives from
      state and local'government, civil defense, fire fighting, health, environmental and
      transportation agencies, the media, community groups and businesses subject to
      EPCRA reporting. LEPCs use TRI data, as well as information about chemicals
      stored bnsite by local facilities, for thir own planning purposes.   They also make this
      information available to the public upon request.

      State and Local Agencies  TRI data is useful to hospitals,  schools,  and state and
      local governments for emergency planning and response at  the state  and local level.
      Many emergency management agencies,  fire departments, and emergency medical
      services use TRI to identify chemicals in use and map facility locations for more
      effective, quicker response to emergencies.  The TRI data is also used to  identify the
      need for and pass state and local legislation.  For example,  Louisiana used the TRI
      data as the basis for  passing a new Air Toxics law requiring a. 50 percent reduction of
      emissions by 1996.   TRI is also used in combination with other data to determine
      whether companies are complying with environmental legislation already in effect.
      For example, TRI data on off-site transfers can be used to identify chemicals or
      wastes being transported  from a facility and to verify that the receiving landfill has
      the proper permits for the incoming amount and types of waste.                   -

      U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)  TRI is used by EPA as  a baseline
      for measuring improvements in companies across the nation.  Company performance
      records are tracked over  time to  monitor voluntary pollution prevention efforts, and  to
      oversee emission reductions called for under the Clean Air  Act Amendments of 1990.
      TRI is used throughout the EPA to measure company compliance with other laws and
      to target areas where enforcement of other regulations is needed, to  gauge the need
      for additional regulatory  efforts to clean  up water, air, and solid waste problems, and
      to develop strategies  for assessing pollution prevention programs.

      . Federal Agencies TRI data is used extensively at the federal level for a variety of
      programs.  Congress relies on TRI figures to  develop environmental legislation.
      Through TRI data, federal lawmakers  discovered that the nation's original Clean Air
      Act toxics control program was not adequate - of the top 25 toxic chemicals reported
      to TRI as released to the air, only two were regulated by the Clean  Air Act:  In 1990,
      amendments to the Clean Air Act required additional reporting for designated^
      "hazardous air pollutants" and made manufacturers develop risk management plans,
      shifting the initial emergency planning burden from the mostly-volunteer LEPC to
      industry.  The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, a federal public
      health agency whose job  it is to prevent or minimize adverse health  effects, from
      exposure to hazardous substances, uses TRI data to set goals for improving the
      nation's health.  The Internal Revenue Service has used TRI data to measure
      .compliance of reporting companies with  tax laws pertaining to the use of toxic
      substances.

       Health Officials TRI data can be used to build an information base on hazardous
       chemicals used, manufactured, or transported in a state or community. Health
       professionals can use this information to better prepare personnel for emergencies.
       TRI can help diagnose, treat or study health effects resulting from chemical exposure
       in the community or workplace.  (See 1.3.7)

       Media TRI is important to the education of the community about facilities and
       potential hazards in the local area.  Many large newspapers, such as USA Today, the
       New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal have run stories on the effectiveness of
       the  right-to-know statute, as have scores of local newspapers, trade and labor union
       publications, and periodicals.

       International TRI enhances the ability of the global community to work as  one in
       monitoring the earth's environment. Several nations use the data to assist in their
       efforts to become more environmentally conscious. Environment Canada uses the
       TRI data to determine which industries and chemicals need greater regulation in their
       country; it developed a National Pollutant Inventory modeled on TRI. In recent
       years, when many eastern  European countries  turned their attention to the
       environment, several nations began considering implementation of programs  similar to
       TRI.  One country used TRI data to evaluate companies interested in opening
       facilities there.  Other users of TRI around the world include Great Britain,    ;
       continental Europe,  India,  and Japan.  International organizations, particularly other
       governments, are one of the fastest growing segments of the TRI user community.
1.3.7
TRI &  Health
Viewing TRI data for the first time often triggers concern about the health risk posed by the
release of chemicals that are listed in the data base.  You may ask, or others may ask you,
how toxic a particular chemical is, or whether the volume of releases shown in TRI will
adversely affect their health or the environment.  These are not easy  questions to answer, and
cannot be answered by TRI alone. Risk is the measure of the chance that you will
experience health problems or that the environment will be degraded. Many factors must be
considered in order to evaluate what risks, if any, you face from the presence of toxic
chemicals in your local environment. Risk screening uses available information,  such as
TRI, to develop a relative estimate of risk for a given set of conditions.  Risks are ranked as
high, medium, or low in order to set priorities for further evaluation.

The TRI data is a first link to discovering which chemicals being manufactured, released, or
transferred in your community pose a threat to human health  and the environment.  The TRI
will tell you the names and estimated amounts of chemicals released, in your area during the
preceding year.  You can also find out about chemicals that were transferred into or away
from your area for treatment and disposal.

-------
This information alone does not indicate ;the risks that these chemicals pose or may pose to
human health and the environment.  Small releases of highly toxic chemicals may be a
greater risk than very large releases  of less toxic chemicals. Though the TRI data is useful to
evaluate the risk in your community, other information is required to form a complete
picture. A determination of risk depends  on the release conditions, extent of exposure,
environmental conditions, and other  factors.

The presence of a chemical on TRI does not necessarily represent a health risk.  Other
factors, such as the level and type of exposure and toxicity, also must be considered.  For
example, some high-volume releases of relatively'non-toxic chemicals may appear  to be a
more serious problem  than low-volume releases of highly toxic chemicals.  However, just the
opposite may be true.  Volume does not always indicate danger or a need for serious
concern.  Reports of TRI data contain releases of chemicals, not the level of exposure to
these chemicals. It is  important to review all the variables involved in the reporting of TRI
data.  Other information,  in addition to TRI data, must be considered to determine the impact
of a chemical release on your health.
1.3.8
If You Want More Information
Once you become aware of toxic chemical releases in your community, you may want
additional information or assistance.  Here are several suggestions for following up in your
community:            '                             .    -

Learn the facts.' In addition to chemical release information, TRI contains the names and
telephone numbers of public contacts at reporting facilities. Companies are becoming more
sensitive to citizens' concerns about health and the environment, and some have begun
community outreach programs.  Company officials may provide answers to your questions
that could affect risk screening. They can also steer you towards local agencies, for
example, the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC).                            -
                                             '.       .          •      -    '        *•
Go to the local library. Ask your librarian to help you find information about chemicals in
your community.  There are many reference works that examine chemical toxicity and other
factors to help you decide whether further investigation is warranted.

Identify local safety and public health agencies.' These groups can help you evaluate what
you have learned and identify any additional information you may need.  Most counties have
a public health agency staffed by one or more doctors,  including a county health officer.
Some areas have poison control centers  with lexicologists and other staff who may be of
some assistance. If you have difficulty identifying appropriate agencies in -your area, call the
local hospital or fire department for a referral.                   -

-------
Locate the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPQ.  The EPCRA legislation that
created TRI also established LEPCs to plan for emergency action in the event of hazardous
chemical spills and similar incidents. LEPCs are aware of hazardous chemicals used and
stored by facilities in your area.  They receive Material Safety Data Sheets that detail
physical properties and health effects of hazardous chemicals used by local manufacturers and
other facilities.  LEPCs, while often associated with existing county-level emergency
planning or civil defense agencies, include representatives of environmental and
transportation agencies, fire fighters, hospitals, the media, community groups, and others.

Call the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry f ATSDR'). The ATSDR is the
leading federal public health agency concerned with  risks resulting from chemical exposure.
Located in Atlanta, GA, it was created by the Superfund legislation in 1980.  ATSDR makes
information on the health effects of hazardous substances available to the public, conducts
health assessments, and sponsors research.  The ATSDR publication series titled
Toxicological Profiles characterizes toxicological properties and health effects information  for
specific chemicals so they can be understood by a lay person. These publications, widely
distributed to libraries across the country, are invaluable if you are  interested in a specific
chemical. ATSDR maintains contacts with state and  local health agencies throughout the U.S.
(For more information, call ATSDR at (404) 639-0727.)

Contact the regional EPA office serving your area for more information about TRI facilities
near you. Each of the ten regional offices has a  designated TRI coordinator who can answer
your questions about the TRI program and reporting facilities in your area.  (See the list of
provided on the disc in README.RGS).   You may also call TRI User Support to learn more
about obtaining or using TRI information products.  Finally, the EPCRA Hotline (800-535-
0202) can provide detailed information about TRI reporting requirements.

Contact your local college or university.  Leading experts can often be found in the academic
community, and professors  and staff are often willing to share their knowledge with local
residents. Be prepared to make a few phone calls.  Several attempts may be necessary to
find the right department or person.
                                                                                  '  • v
Network with neighbors and community groups.  This is a good way  to exchange
information, participate in meetings with officials, experts, and company representatives and
plan activities that address your concerns.  The more people are involved, the more attention
you are likely to receive from industry officials,  government agencies, and the news media.

TRI Data On Floppy Diskette
 TRI can be accessed on the personal computer (PC) through the use of several different
 software packages.  Floppy diskettes are compatible with the IBM PC  microcomputer and
 may be available in a choice of sizes, depending on the source.  The user can buy diskettes
 for a single state,  a set of several different states, or all states in dBASE III Plus format or in
 Lotus 1-2-3 format. Floppy diskettes contain the most frequently used TRI data, including
 the TRI facility identification number, name of the reporting facility, the facility's county,
 city, state, zip code, Standard Industrial Classification code,  parent company name, chemical
 name and Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number, aggregated chemical releases to the
 air, land, underground injection wells, and water, as well as total chemical transfers to
 offsite locations and publicly owned treatment works.  In addition, the diskettes include the
 public contact name and phone number, longitude and latitude, state/county FIPS (Federal
 Information Processing Standards) code, and various EPA-assigned waste permitting
, identification  numbers.  Diskettes containing data for 1991 and later also contain selected
 pollution prevention data that were added to TRI as a result of the Pollution Prevention Act
 of 1990.  Diskettes are also available in the Macintosh worksheet format (.MAC)  for 1989.
 Documentation for all versions ^is provided.

TRI Data on Internet
TRI data is. now available through the Internet in several ways.  EPA recently established an
agency-wide gopher that provides access to a broad range of environmental information.  (A
"gopher" is the terminolgy used to describes method of accessing an organized collection of
computer files over the Internet.  A gopher is usually associated with a particular
organization or source for information.)  The TRI data contained in the EPA Internet gopher
is expected to^expand over time.  At the time of this writing, the EPA gopher contains the
complete text and tables that comprised the printed report, 1992 Toxics Release Inventory:
Public Data Release,  released in April 1994.          '.-•'.

The address for the EPA gopher is:  gopher.epa.gov.  To browse TRI data,  select "the
following menu choices:                       .                              •"-,...;

NLM password is necessary to use the file.  (See 1.4.3.)

1.4.5      TRI Data  On Magnetic Tape

The TRI is available for each annual inventory on 9 track tape, 1600 or 6250 density, ASCII
or EBCDIC format, with accompanying documentation.  Tapes include printing instructions
or codes and text.  Complete TRI data is available on tape.  A subset of the  data called
"Reporting  Facilities Names and Addresses" is also available on tape.

1.4.6      Printed  Reports About TRI

Every year, EPA publishes one or more printed reports highlighting the most recent TRI data
available to the public.  The first three reports (also called "national reports") contain
analyses describing trends in geographic distribution, industrial patterns of releases  and
transfers, pollution prevention, and data usage.  .National reports were published under
differing titles in 1989, 1990 and 1991. Every Spring since 1991 and continuing to the
present, EPA has issued a Public Data Release Report.  These reports contain numerous
tables accompanied by explanatory text aggregating release data by chemical, state,  industry,
etc.  Tables also highlight facilities with the largest releases nationwide, the greatest change
from the preceding year, etc.  Both national reports and public data release reports  are
widely distributed by EPA and made available to selecting Federal depository libraries.  A
limited number  of copies are available (until stock is exhausted) from TRI User Support (see
1.5).   .•••.'..

2.0    Accessing  TRI  On  CD-ROM
The package for utilizing TRI on CD-ROM includes the CD-ROM, the Quick Reference
Guide and installation instructions contained in the disc case, and this User Manual.

2.1  Installation of TRI


The installation of the CD-ROM TRI software can be performed quickly and efficiently if
you follow the steps presented in the sections  listed below.

2.1,1  Configuration Requirements

The following minimum configuration is needed to run the compact disc software:

      •    IBM or 100% IBM PC  compatible personal computer.  (The TRI software can
           run on a 286, but you will receive better performance on a 386 or higher.)

      •    640K RAM (with 540K RAM available for fielded data)

      •    Hard disk with at least 1.5 MB disk space (required for installation)

      •    CD-ROM drive with CD-ROM Extensions

      •    MS-DOS or PC-DOS version 3.3 or above                 .

      •    Color or monochrome monitor

      •    Printer (optional)    '

2.1.2  Setting  Up Your CD-ROM System

This section describes how to configure a personal computer to read data from a CD-ROM
device.  If your CD-ROM workstation is already setup or the workstation is being used
to access other discs, please skip this section and proceed to Section 2.1.3, Installing
TRI Search Software.                             ,
CD - ROM User's Manual .
Page 2'- 1

-------
There are several steps that must be performed to configure your system to begin to utilize
CD-ROMs.  These steps are not difficult, especially if you are comfortable with setting up
directories and changing system files.  Some procedures and file-naming conventions may
vary from one institution to another because of differences in equipment and internal policies.
The information presented here is to be used as a guide; it is not intended  to provide
step-by-step instructions that will work in every institution.  Most organizations have
designated a staff person with appropriate technical skills who can provide you with
assistance, if needed.

Set-up procedures vary especially where local area networks (LANs) are in place to permit
resource sharing among many users.  The 1987-1992 TRI discs were designed for single-user
workstations, not multi-user configurations as found on LANs. Nevertheless, TRI can be
used on a network.  Typically, .if more than one user tries to use a disc simultaneously, the
second user will receive a DOS message notifying them that the file is  already in use.

2.1.2.1  Installing  CD-ROM Extensions

The TRI CD-ROM, like most discs developed in recent years, is in ISO 9660 format. ISO
9660 (also called High Sierra) is a standard format that was adopted early  in the development
of CD-ROM technology.  This format dictates a common logical file format for data on
CD-ROMs that enable them to be used with a variety of different microcomputers,  CD-ROM
drives, and operating systems.  This format, and thus most discs in use today, requires the
use of software called CD-ROM Extensions.  CD-ROM Extensions are usually supplied by
the vepdor when a CD-ROM drive  is purchased.

CD-ROM Extensions provide the interface between the retrieval software developed for a
particular application and the MS-DOS operating system.  A program called MSCDEX.EXE
prevails over the limitation in earlier versions of MS-DOS (before Version 5.0) that restricts
access to devices larger in size than 32 megabytes.  (This limitation is why larger hard drives
are usually "partitioned" into several smaller drives.) The MSCDEX.EXE program is not
required with DOS 5.0 or higher.

Another program, called a "device driver," is also provided with the CD-ROM drive.  This
program actually translates signals between the microcomputer and the  CD-ROM drive.
Device drivers are not unique to CD-ROM applications; these drivers also are required for
other peripherals, such as CRTs and printers.  Device driver programs  can usually be
identified because they are named by the manufacturer after the type of equipment for which
they were developed, for example,  hitachi.sys for a Hitachi CD-ROM drive.

Most computer vendors provide a simple setup program with their equipment for preparing a
microcomputer to begin to recognize and interact with the CD-ROM drive. When available,
use the vendor-supplied program. They are usually reliable and simple to  run.  However,
you can configure your own system in a few steps.  (The steps are essentially the same,
whether they are done automatically by a program or performed manually.)

CD - ROM User's Manual

-------
Configuring your workstation to read CD-ROMs without the aid of a set-up program requires
making changes to your "autoexec.bat" and "config.sys" files, two files that provide vital
instructions to the computer during the initial boot.  To "edit, these  files, you will need to use
a utility for editing files, or EDLIN, the- utility software provided  with older versions of
MS-DOS.  (For instructions on using the edit utility software that  is available to you, consult
the documentation that accompanies the software.  If you will be using EDLIN,  review the
use of that software in,the DOS manual).

After you have physically hooked up the-hardware, the first step is installing CD-ROM
Extensions  (MSCDEX) and the CD-ROM device driver on your bootable disk (which in most
cases is the C Drive).  The name of the device driver varies from one model CD-ROM drive
to another;  one common practice of software developers is to name the device driver after
the brand of CD-ROM drive that it supports (as previously explained).  The device driver
program  and MSCDEX.EXE;are frequently set up in  separate directories.  However, this
practice is not universal.          ;

The next step is to add a line to the Config.sys file to identify the device driver program.
The format for this line may be as follows:

     . Device = \path\driver name/D:\driver alias/N:#          -.              ,           ,
                       "   .                             •                         - '• •
A typical example might be:

      Device=\dev\hitachi.sys/D:MSCD001/n:l            '..."'.

In this example, DEV is the directory where the file - hitachi.sys - is located; hitachi.sys is
the name of the device driver.  MSCD001 is the driver alias provided by the manufacturer in
either, written instructions or the drive setup program; and the last number following the "n"
represents the number of CD-ROM drives attached  to that computer.

The third step is to add a line to the autoexec.bat file for running MSCDEX and assigning a
letter to your CD-ROM drive.  Depending on your system configuration, you may opt to
setup one or more batch files to accomplish the same purpose. A line added to the
autoexec.bat file will be formatted as follows:

       \path \MSCDEX/d:dri\ver alias M:8/L:L

A typical example of this line might be:

       \bin\MSCDEX/d:MSCD001/M:22/L~:L

In this example, bin is the directory where the program MSCDEX is located; MSCDEX is
the program commonly called CD-ROM Extensions.  d:MSCD001 is the device  driver alias
name supplied by the manufacturer (and also listed in the config.sys file); following m: is the
number of memory buffers allocated.  The last letter,  following L:, represents the letter used .
to designate the CD-ROM drive.

The final step, though simple, is nevertheless easy to overlook.  You must reboot your
computer in order to activate the changes that you have made to your autoexec.bat and
config.sys files.

2.1.3  Installing TRI Search Software
Complete software for searching the CD-ROM is contained on each of the two discs that
comprise the 1987-1992 TRI CD-ROM set. Installation can usually be completed in a few
simple steps.

In previous years, installation instructions for TRI required that the software be installed in a
directory called TRI. This edition of TRI, because it is on two discs, requires creation of
two different subdirectories for software installation.  The examples below use REL (for the
Releases file) and TRT (for the Treatment file). You can use any names that you like; try to
choose something that you will recognize,  like TRIDISC1 and TRIDISC2.
Before you begin, you may want
to delete software for earlier
editions of TRI, found in the TRI
directory,  since each new edition
of TRI is cumulative.  (Removal
of old software from the TRI
directory is essential if you plan
to use that subdirectory name
again.)  Companies are permitted
by law to revise TRI reporting
forms for previous years; the
updated forms are included on
the latest disc. By deleting old
software, you will be able  to free
up several megabytes of hard
disk space.

Create a directory for installing
software for accessing the
Releases file from Disk 1.  You
may choose any name that  you
wish.  To  create a subdirectory
called REL, at the C: > prompt,
enter:
                               TRI

-------
 Change to the directory that you just created, as follows, substituting the subdirectory name
 that you created for REL in this example:

       C:>cd\REL < ENTER >

 The DOS prompt should now read:                                              :

       C:\REL>

 Insert Disk 1 into the CD-ROM drive with the label facing up.  Install selected" files from
 TRI Disk 1 on your hard disk.. Type the CD-ROM drive letter followed by the word,
 "install" (no quotes).  For example, type:

       C:\REL > Lrinstall  < ENTER >

 where the CD-ROM drive letter is L.                                          .

 NOTE:  If you are uncertain of the drive letter assigned to the CD-ROM drive, you can
 often tell by viewing the autoexec.bat file.  Return to the root directory and type:

              c: > type autoexec.bat < ENTER >

       Locate a line similar to:       •                                      .

              \BIN\MSCDEX\D:MSCD001/M:12/L:L
                    f                                                            ...

 The letter following L: at the end of the line, (in this case, L:L)  indicates the drive letter
 assigned to the CD-ROM drive.  If L: is not present, your CD-ROM drive is the first letter
 of the alphabet not assigned to a'hard .disk or other storage device.  The CD-ROM drive may
 be assigned any letter of the alphabet.                   1

 The first installation screen will ask you to enter the letter for the CD-ROM drive. Using
 the example above, you would type:                                 -

' .  •  ..  L             ,   ''     :      '      •'•"/-.   ."-.

 The next screen prompt gives you the option to edit the path where the software will be   „.
 installed. After editing the path (if necessary) or when you are ready to continue, press
 .                     '                    :"..;.

 If you are installing TRI the software into an existing directory, a prompt will appear to ,
 warn you that any existing files in the directory may be overwritten or appended.  At the
 Screen prompt,- type:

   ..•'  Y   .   .     ...        .'                  '    -    .-• •    :
 CD - ROM User's Manual
Page 2 - 5

-------
You will proceed with the installation. The message "COPYING PLEASE WAIT" will
appear on the screen and will remain until the software installation is complete.

If you encounter an error message or any other indication of a problem, proceed to Section
2.1.5, Troubleshooting Software Installation.

After the software installation is successfully completed, at the subdirectory prompt, type:

       TRI 

The main menu (displayed in Section 2.4, Accessing the Toxic Release Inventory) will be
displayed.  To ensure that the CD-ROM is properly installed, select "1. Chemical Substance
Fact Sheets."  You will see a message "Loading KAware2 with L:\TRIFACTS\FACTS\ -
Please Wait." Press  when the next screen appears.  If the software for
retrieving the Fact Sheets has been successfully installed, the next screen will contain
function key descriptions (i.e., Fl =  Help) at the top and bottom of the screen. Press F10
to exit.

Next, to test software installation for  the TRI data base, select "2. Toxic Release Inventory."
The system will respond by displaying the Data Files Screen.  Select the RELEASES file and
press .  (The message "File Not Found " may appear briefly on the screen,  but
you may disregard it. The file is actually created during initial installation.) If the software
for retrieving TRI has been successfully installed, the next screen will contain function key
descriptions (i.e., Fl= Help) at the top and bottom of the screen.  Press F10 to exit.

Remove Disc 1 from the CD-ROM drive and insert Disc 2. Repeat the same installation
procedure as  outlined above for Disc  1, except use a different name (for example, TRT)  for
the subdirectory where the software is installed.  The main menu will look the same as it did
when you installed Disc 1.  However, the Data Files Screen will list the TREATMNT file,
instead of the RELEASES file.


2.1.5  Troubleshooting Software  Installation

In most cases, software installation is trouble-free.  In a few cases, however, difficulties  may
arise. This section is designed to help you identify and remedy the most common problems.
For convenience,  it is organized by symptom.  Error messages are shown in bold print to
help you locate them quickly.

CDR101:Not ready error reading drive [CD-ROM drive letter]
Abort, Retry, Fail?

The first item to check for this error is whether the TRI CD is properly inserted in the drive
with the label facing  up.  This error may occur during installation or anytime someone is
preparing to use the CD-ROM.
Page 2-6
CD - ROM User's Manual

-------
A more difficult problem to resolve is when your system is not configured properly.  If you
also have trouble reading a CD-ROM other than TRI when you list the directory, an
improper configuration is likely the problem.  If you think your system is configured
improperly, examine the autoexec.bat, config.sys,  and other files that are created to run the
CD-ROM drive. If you cannot detect the problem, seek assistance from  a systems expert.

Although it is possible, it is highly unlikely that the CD-ROM itself is faulty unless the
product was damaged following its manufacture.

Bad Command or File Name             '

If this error occurs during the initial installation, check for typographical errors in the way
the command was entered.  If the error occurs during installation or when you are trying to
use the TRI database, the computer is reading from a subdirectory (e.g.,  TRIP ACTS) rather
than the root directory of the CD-ROM. To remedy the problem, change to the root
directory of the CD-ROM.  (Enter the letter for the CD-ROM drive followed by a colon.
Then, type cd\  and press .)

Invalid Drive Specification

The CD-ROM drive was not turned on until after the PC. Turn on the PC after turning on
the CD-ROM drive.                                                            ,

Invalid Drive Letter                                              -

The letter that you entered to represent the CD-ROM drive does not agree with the system
configuration that is presently active.  Verify the letter assigned to the CD-ROM drive by
checking the autoexec.bat file or listing the CD-ROM directory.  Try  rebooting your system
if the autoexec.bat file appears to be correct but there is a chance that it was "changed  since
the last boot.   _

File Not Found

It is normal for this message to flash on  the screen momentarily the first  time that you use
the disc following software installation.  (Additional files are created automatically as  soon as
you begin using the CD-ROM.)  If the message recurs, it may mean that installation was
interrupted or did not complete successfully for some other reason. (There should be 16  files
totalling 619,318 bytes in the subdirectory  where software for Disc 1  (Releases) is installed,
and 14 files totaling 621,578 bytes in the subdirectory where software for Disc 2 (Treatment)
is installed as soon as installation is completed. Additional files are added as soon as  you
call up the RELEASES or TREATMNT files in TRI and the Fact Sheets, resulting in up  to
25 files in each directory.)  The easiest solution is to erase files in the subdirectories and
repeat the installation  procedure.          -

Display shows something other than TRI Installation Screen

This error may occur if the CD-ROM reader is reading from a subdirectory rather than the
root directory of the TRI CD-ROM during the installation process.  To remedy the problem,
change to the root directory of the CD-ROM. (Enter the letter for the CD-ROM drive
followed by a colon.  Then, type cd\ and press < ENTER >.)

Iff]  Additional Bytes of Available Memory Required To Run KAware2 Press ENTER to
Exit KAware2
Out of Memory:  This Application requires 0 Additional Bytes of Free Memory

These messages will appear if your system does not have enough room to load the software
and TRI records into memory to allow you to retrieve the TRI data.  About 430K available
memory is required to load the Chemical Substance Fact Sheets.  Approximately 540K of
memory is required for the TRI data base. Although the error message says that no
additional bytes of free memory are needed, additional memory is required.  The message
instructs you to press < ENTER >  to return to DOS  to investigate the memory problem,
however, when you press , you will not return to the DOS prompt. -Instead,
you will return to  the DATA  SELECTION MENU.

Most microcomputers are configured with at least 640K of Random Access Memory (RAM).
Memory is the area where your computer temporarily stores data and instructions it needs to
execute that tasks  you have requested.  (Don't confuse memory with hard disk space usually
measured in megabytes which provides longer-term data storage.) Some  of your computer's
memory may be used by DOS or other programs loaded on your equipment.  To find out
how much memory is actually available, at the C prompt in the root directory, type:

       c:\>chkdsk

Scan the display; the last line tells you how many bytes of memory are free.


2.1.6  If You Need More  Memory...

One of the most common problems that users experience during installation occurs when
insufficient random access memory (RAM) is available to load the files.  As noted above,
540K of RAM is required to successfully install the TRI software.  (It is  important to
distinguish between RAM, required by DOS applications such as the TRI discs,  and other
types of memory.  See the sidebar on the following page for a brief description.)  If you are
currently experiencing problems due to memory limitations, it is  only going to get worse as
more multi-media and audio discs are introduced.  You may want to consider upgrading the
memory or modernizing your CD-ROM workstation.  If you are  considering enhancing your
existing system, you may wish to speak to someone knowledgeable in this area before
proceeding.

                                                               CD - ROM User's Manual

-------
There are, however, several steps that you can take to maximize the RAM available without
upgrading equipment.  The easiest method requires use of DOS 5.0 or higher, which allows
you to make use of memory in several new ways.  For example, it allows you to utilize part
of the .upper which was restricted from use unless you purchased a separate memory
management program.  In addition, you can transfer actual DOS programs from conventional
memory to the high memory area, thus freeing up a larger portion of the precious 640K
conventional memory.
Another possibility is to identify and
discontinue use of any unnecessary
"terminate and stay resident" (TSR)
programs that you may be using.  All
computer software  requires the use of some
memory while the computer is in use.  TSR
programs are routines that continue to
occupy memory even if these programs are
not active. Often such  programs are
difficult to identify and you may need
assistance.           ,

Here are two steps you might take to
free-up, memory space occupied by TSRs:

  1) Reboot your system before using the
TRI -CD-ROM.  Some application software,
for example, spreadsheets, word processors,
etc., may leave a "part" of the program in
memory, even though you are no longer
using the program. By rebooting your
system, you will rid the memory of TSR
routines remaining  from software used
earlier.

  2) Change your autoexec.bat file  to
eliminate TSR programs that are activated
as soon as you turn your computer on. A
common example of TSRs is a "shell"
programs to display a menu instead of the
DOS prompt when you first boot the
computer or allow your numeric keypad to
function like a calculator.  If you modify
your autoexec.bat file, be sure to reboot
your computer to activate any changes you
have made.  .   . •      ,           ,
     TYPES  OF COMPUTER MEMORY

'The 640K; (o* mm&fatm Jess) memory with which
 yea are most familiar is known as conventional

-------
Another alternative is to reduce the number of files allocated in your config.sys file. The
config.sys file, read automatically by the computer when you boot, instructs the computer on
how to allocate some of its memory.  The configiSys file describes the number of files that
can be opened at one time with the files command.  For example, files=10 means that a
maximum number of ten files may be open at one time. Usually the minimum number of
files is between six and ten, because DOS requires five files  for its use.  Reboot the
computer after changing the config.sys .file.

You also can reduce the number of memory buffers.  DOS uses disk buffers to store data
when reading from and writing to a disk.  Each buffer requires 528 bytes of memory.  The
number of buffers you allocate depends on the type of applications you use and your
hardware configuration.  Check the documentation or contact your system administrator to
determine the minimum number of buffers for your situation. If you modify the config.sys
file, reboot the system.

2.2 TRI CD-ROM Structure
The CD-ROM version of TRI consists of three separate and distinct options and features:
the Toxic Release Inventory, Fact Sheets, and performing calculations. These options and
features will be discussed in the next sections.
2.2.1
Chemical  Substance Fact Sheets
In addition to the TRI itself, the CD-ROM also contains Fact Sheets that provide information
about health, safety and ecological data on TRI chemicals. You might use this file after
searching for information in the TRI itself (discussed below) to learn more about the effects
and to better understand the chemicals that have been identified. The fact sheets data base is
provided on both Disc 1  and Disc 2, for your convenience.  For more information, see
Chapter 3.      .
Page 2-10
                                                   CD - ROM User's Manual

-------
 2.2.2       Toxic Release Inventory

 The complete Toxic Release Inventory for all six years of its existence (1987-1992) is
 contained on the two discs that comprise the TRI.  Disc 1 contains the Releases file and Disc
 2 contains the Treatment file (described below). For more information, see
 Chapter 4.

       The RELEASES file is used when requesting comprehensive facility identification
       information. This file contains total amounts of chemicals released to the mediums
       (air,  land, water) and publicly owned treatment works (POTWs).  It can be used to
       display summary of releases, e.g., searching for facility and chemical information for
       ABC Manufacturing Company, or the name and addresses of off-site locations in
       Houston, Texas where chemical wastes are shipped.

       The TREATMNT file is used to search for data on waste treatment methods and
       efficiency, and waste  minimization.                                  ._.  '   .-;

 2.2.3      Calculation  Feature (KASTAT)

 KASTAT is a feature of TRI that takes sets that have been created and calculates the sum
 totals of fields that have been selected.  For more information, see Chapter 5.,

 2.3   ReadmeFiles

 There are several "readme" files that provide documentation for the database and referrals to
 State and  Regional contacts.  These files can be viewed and printed directly from the CD-
 ROM.  These files are:                          ,

 README.EPA:  Contains descriptions of all the data fields including codes and translation
 of coded information.

 README.RGS:  Contains the  names, addresses, and telephone numbers of the 10 Federal
 EPA Regional contacts.

 README.SIC:  Contains the four-digit Standard Industrial  Classification codes for 20-39
 and the code descriptions.                .

 README. STA:  Contains the  names, addresses, and telephone numbers of the State and
 Territorial TRI contacts.

2.4  Accessing the Toxic Release Inventory


In order to access TRI on the CD-ROM:

      1.     Turn on the CD-ROM drive and the personal computer.

      NOTE:  The' CD-ROM drive must be turned on before or at the same time as the PC.

      2.     Insert one of the two TRI compact discs (CD) into the CD-ROM drive.

      3.     Make sure that you are logged onto drive C. If not, type:  '

             C: 

      4.     Access the directory where the TRI CD-ROM software was loaded (e."g.,
             REL,  in the example shown earlier in this chapter):

             CDREL  

      5.     To begin accessing TRI, at the subdirectory DOS prompt (e.g., C:\REL>),
             type:

             TRI  

             The first screen you will see is the Data Base Selection menu:

related to the health and ecological effects as well as safety and handling of the chemicals.
There is a fact sheet for most TRI chemicals, except when categories of chemicals are
grouped together for TRI reporting (e.g., lead compounds).  Designed for a lay audience,
they represent scientifically .accepted information in non-technical language.  The data may
be especially useful to workers, employers, community residents, and health professionals.

It is especially useful to review the Fact Sheets after identifying chemicals of interest by
searching the TRI Fielded Database.  Text on health, safety, and ecological data is displayed
along with the common name and CAS number.

For your convenience, Chemical Substance Fact Sheets are provided on both TRI discs, and
can be accessed from the main menu on Disc 1 or Disk 2.

Press  < ENTER > to Select #f, Chemical Substance Fact Sheets, from the DATA BASE
SELECTION MENU.

3.1   Overview of Conducting A Search

To conduct a search of data contained in Fact Sheets, there are several simple steps. You
will need to SELECT the data elements for the specific information you need; "SEARCH for
specific values related to those data elements; DISPLAY the data; and PRINT the date for
later viewing or DOWNLOAD (export) the data to other software formats. Additional
information on conducting a search is provided in Section 3.3, Conducting A Search For
Fact Sheets.

3.2   Function Key Options

Several options in the form of function key selections are displayed on the top and bottom of
the screen.  Some of these options have pull-down menus associated with  the option.
These options are as follows.

NOTE: To remove a pull-down menu associated with a function key option, press the
function key for that option and the pull-down menu will toggle off. Press the same function
key to  toggle the pull-down menu back on.

       TABLE OF CONTENTS - This choice provides a listing which displays all of the
       common names of chemicals in alphabetic order (or the order that is indicated in the
       Table of Contents selection under the F2 = Options choice).  Chemical names
       preceded by numbers sort before chemicals that begin with an alphabetic character
       (see examples on sample screen shown below).  There are 33 screens of chemical
       common names.  Use the  and   keys to browse through the list
       of chemicals sequentially.  When you have located the common name that you need,
       press  .  The Table of Contents only searches the chemical common name
       field.  After selecting a name,  the record is displayed but no set is created.

       COMMON NAME - This choice also allows you to search by common chemical
       name, but provides greater flexibility in searching.  It allows you to type in a term,
       partial term (followed by a question mark (?)), phrase, or boolean expression to locate
       a common  chemical name.  For chemical names that begin with numbers, omit the
       numbers when searching.  (For example, search 1,1,2,2 - Tetrachlorethane by
       entering Tetrachlorethane.) Only the common name field will be searched, not the
       text of the  Fact Sheet.  Unlike using the Table of Contents to search by common
       chemical name, this option will result in creation of a search set.

       NOTE:  It is possible to search the Common Name field using boolean expressions,
       however, it is not the most effective way to search by chemical name. Instead, type a
       partial term followed by a question mark (e.g., chlor?) to identify variant spellings or
       similar chemical names.

       CAS NUMBER - A Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number uniquely identifies an
       individual chemical.  When known, searching by CAS number is the most precise
       way to search for chemical data.  This choice allows you to type in a term,  partial
       term (followed by a question mark (?)), phrase, or boolean expression to locate a
       CAS number.  Dashes in a CAS number are required.  Only the CAS number field
       will be searched.  The format for a CAS number is as follows:   first five positions
       can be digits (nq leading zeros), followed by a dash (-), followed by two more  digits
       (leading zero), followed by a dash (-), and then one more final digit (may be a  zero).

       TEXT - This choice allows you to type in a term, partial term (followed by a question
       mark (?)), phrase, or boolean expression to locate text.  Only the body of the Fact
       Sheet (or "text") is searched, not the chemical name or CAS number where they
       appear in the heading of the Fact Sheet.  Proximity searching also is an effective way
       to search for specific text.  This type of searching is useful when trying to locate text
       or words that are adjacent or near each other. Either of two formats may be used:  1)
       Using the search operator NEAR (e.g., EXPOSURE NEAR TOXICITY) will retrieve
       all documents where the two words occur in the same Fact Sheet or part of a Fact

There are various selections for this option which assist you in creating, printing, and
displaying sets.  Several examples are displayed below.

       Change Search Sets - This selection allows you to change to a specific set you have
       created and search for further information within that specific set.  If you do not
       specify a set, the TRI software will search-the entire file.  (The. current search set is
       shown at the bottom of the screen.  SEARCH SET=0 means that the  entire database
       is being searched.)  Once the search set is changed, you must change the set back to
       zero (0) if you wish to resume searching the entire file.  Using the Change Search Set
       option saves time and memory space, as the TRI software  searches the entire database
       once, and then searches within the smaller set that was previously defined, to search
       for the second condition.

       Combine Sets - This selection allows you combine user defined sets with additional
       conditions of AND, OR, or NOT. - To understand the difference between these three
       conditions, let us use an example for each condition.

       •      Benzene AND Chlorine - The TRI software will search the database for both
              chemical names in the field being searched.  AND limits the search to records
              meeting criteria for all of the sets that are being combined.

       •      Benzene OR Chlorine,- The TRI software will search the database for either of
              the chemical names in the field being searched. OR broadens the search to   .
              include records that meet criteria for creating any  of the searches being
              combined.

       .•      Benzene NOT Chlorine - The TRI software will search the database for the
              first word not the second word in the field being searched.  NOT includes
              records that meet criteria used to create the first" set specified except records
              that were included in the second set that is combined.

              NOTE: When combining with NOT,  you will obtain different results
              depending on which word you specify first.

       Select the condition and press < ENTER >.  Set numbers are displayed on the screen
       under the SET category.  In the set box, type the first set number, press
       , type the second set number, press  , etc., until all the set
       numbers to be combined have been identified.  You  may give this newly created set a
       name.  If you do not give the set a name, the TRI software will generate a name
       automatically.

       Delete A Set - This selection allows you to delete a specific set.  Deleting  search sets
       that ypu do not need may be beneficial because it increases the the amount of
       workspace that is available for creating additional search sets.  (See WORKSPACE
       REMAINING=????? in  the lower right-hand side of the screen.)  Once you have
       requested a deletion, that set will be highlighted on the screen with the word
       DELETED.  Once deleted, it is no longer possible to retrieve that set, without
       searching the data again.

       Delete All Sets - This selection allows you to delete all user defined sets. (To save
       records for a particular search to disk before deleting all sets, see Export A Set.

3.3   Conducting A Search  For Fact Sheets


To assist you in searching for a specific Fact Sheet using the TRI CD-ROM Software, this
section will describe how to conduct a search, using a simple example. You can refer to
Sections 3.0 and 3.2, to review specific screens.             .

       1.  Press  and decide which part of the file is most efficient to search.
          Highlight the choice and press  < ENTER >.   '            '.

       2.  Construct the search based on fields to be searched and press < ENTER > .
                                                f
For this example, you need to locate a Fact Sheet about the chemical, Methylene, as you are
concerned about health affects related to this chemical.

-------
Once you have selected TRI Fact Sheets from the DATA BASE SELECTION MENU, you
can begin your search for a specific Fact Sheet.  First, you will need to determine what
selection criteria you will use. For this example, we will use common name. Choose
"Common Name" from the F3 = Select option and press . The Common Name
Box is displayed.  Suppose you are not sure how to spell the chemical, Methylene. Type
METH? and press < ENTER >. A box appears showing you all the chemical names that
start with the letters METH.  Use the down arrow to highlight the correct chemical name,
Methylene, and press < ENTER >. Five Fact Sheets about methylene or related chemicals
can be displayed.  Remember, because two chemicals have methylena in their names does
not necessarily mean the two chemicals are comparable for health effects.

Now that you have created a set for the chemical, methylene, suppose you also would like to
review material about methylene and health issues, specifically cancer concerns.  You will
need to create a set, retrieving data on cancer issues.  Then, combine the two sets together to
create a set that contains Fact Sheets on methylene and cancer issues.  Let's explain how to
create these sets.  Select the "text" choice from the F3 = Select option pull-down menu.
Type "cancer"  and press < ENTER.>. the TRI software will display that there are 323
Fact Sheets containing 996 occurrences of "cancer".  You have now created two sets, which
are displayed on the screen.   Next, you will need to combine these two sets. Select the.FS
= Sets option pull-down menu.  Choose the Combine Sets selection and highlight the
Combine With AND option and press   and press   again. Follow
the instructions to combine sets 1 (methylene) and 2 (cancer).  Give the combined set a
name.  This combined set becomes the third set on the screen.

3.4  Displaying  Fact  Sheets

To display the Fact Sheets about Methylene,  select the F5 = Sets option and the pull-down
menu appears.   Highlight the Display A Set selection and press < ENTER >: Enter  #1 to
display the Fact Sheets for methylene.  To display the combined set, showing methylene and
cancer issues, follow the same instructions but enter #3 as the set to display. As you move
through the text, the word, "Cancer", will be highlighted, to bring it to your attention.  Use
the options displayed at the bottom of the screen to browse through; the information.

Select the data file contained on the disc by pressing  . The two files,
RELEASES and TREATMNT, are described below:                         '.'..'

RELEASES .-'This file, contained on Disc 1, is the most frequently-used file. This file
provides comprehensive facility identification and chemical information.  Use this file when
searching for specific data on releases to the air, water, land, underground injection wells,
publicly owned treatment works (POTW) and offsite locations.  The Releases file also
describes pollution prevention methods, including waste reduction and recycling activities,
employed by the facility. Examples of use could include searching for chemicals that were
released in your town/community or into specific bodies of water like the Chesapeake Bay or
Lake Erie.  Searching TRI would also reveal transfers of chemical wastes to local Publicly
Owned Treatment Works (also called sewer plants) or offsite commercial facilities by name
(for example, transfers to ABC Waste Management Company) or by location (such as off-site
locations in Houston, Texas).

TREATMNT - This  file, contained on Disc 2, is used to search for data on waste treatment
methods and efficiency, and waste minimization. It is generally more effective to conduct a
search of the RELEASES file, then replicate the search on Disc 2 if treatment information is
also desired.

4.2     Overview  of Conducting A Search

To conduct a search of TRI data, there are several simple steps.   You will need to SELECT
the data elements for the specific information you need, SEARCH for specific values related
to those data elements, DISPLAY the data, and PRINT the data for later viewing or
DOWNLOAD (export) the data to other software formats.  Use of the function keys for
performing each of these  operations is described in subsequent sections of this chapter.

                                                      Page 4 - 5

-------
NOTE:  To obtain all the data for a single record, you must search both data files
(RELEASES and TREATMNT), either by searching by the EPA submission number or using
the same search criteria, if it is based on data elements common to both files, or by EPA
submission number.  The EPA submission number the unique record identifier that links
records from the two files together.  Common data elements that can be used to search both
files include all facility information, chemical name and CAS number, and reporting year.
To make the search easier, when you have completed the search with the first file, print the
screen with the set list (using the print screen key on the keyboard).  You can then use this
print screen copy to  duplicate the search  for the other remaining file.  The TRI software does
not provide a way to merge data from the RELEASES and TREATMNT files to create a
single, consolidated file. Instead, it is possible to export the same records from' each file in
the same format and merge them using dBase or other software.

After you have selected a specific data file by pressing , the TRI DATA FILES
MAIN MENU associated with the file that you have chosen is displayed automatically.  If
you selected  the RELEASES file (contained on Disc 1), the following DATA FILES MAIN
MENU is displayed:.

4.4    Searching For TRI Data

Searching for TRI data is the primary function for using the TRI system.  Conducting a
search is a two-step process.  First, you need to determine which field or fields in the data
base to  search and then indicate the values of the fields that you identified.  For example,
you might decide to search by facility city. You would then indicate that "Boston," for
example, is the city for which you are searching.  The keys that you would  use to
accomplish these two steps are F3  = SELECT and F4 = SEARCH, respectively.

F3 = Select - This option displays all of the fields used to search for data in the TRI data
files.   The SELECT menu for the RELEASES file is displayed below:   .

Searchable fields include the reporting year; facility name; facility location by zip code, city,
county, or state, etc.; substance (chemical) name; release medium, i.e., air, water, etc.; and
amount of releases (in pounds); and many other fields.   Use the PgDn key to scroll through
all of the search field choices.

  Set   #Found  .                   "

There are numerous fields for searching and various pull-down menus associated with
specific search fields.  Two sample fields are shown below to explain the searching
capabilities of the TRI software.  The first example appears in both the RELEASES  and
TREATMNT files:

        REPORTING YEAR -  This choice provides the option to  select from-the six
        reporting years for which data is available, 1987 - 1992. Use the down arrow to
        identify reporting year on the pull down menu for F3 = Select and press
        .  The F4  = Search menu listing all of the reporting years available will
        appear automatically (see screen below).  Use  the down arrow again to highlight 1992
        as the year of choice and press .

        (Note that searching by reporting year is slower than most other searches because it
        will retrieve over 80,000 records for any given year if you are searching the entire
        data base.  However,-it is very useful if you are interested in calculating total annual
        releases by chemical substance or if you are using the reporting year to narrow an
        earlier search.  See 4.5, Refining the Search.)

4.4.1    Indexing Of Data

The two examples above illustrate searches where the value that you are seeking is selected
from a table that displays a limited number of choices, for example, the years 1987 through
1992:  However, there will also be instances when you will want to enter the value by which
you wish to search from the keyboard.

For many fields, the software allows you to type a term, partial .term (followed by a question
mark (?)), phrase, or boolean expression.  This is possible because every word in the data
base has been indexed.  The example below illustrates this capability.

There are two methods to obtain the correct results when searching by facility name.

The first method requires you to know the exact name of the facility.  Enter the complete
name in the space provided.  For example,  type Monsanto and press < ENTER > .  The
TRI software will search for records where the individual word(s) in the facility name appear
in the facility name field exactly the way you typed it (disregarding capitalization) and
respond with a set number and the number of records matching the search criteria. If the
value that you entered is not found, a box will appear that displays facility names  that closely
match the characters you have entered.  Select the correct name and press < ENTER > .

NOTE: Fields are word-indexed only.  If you enter a phrase, e.g.,  "General Electric", the
TRI software searches for the words "General"  and "Electric."  There is no proximity
searching.  Therefore, a search for "General Electric" will retrieve records for "General
Electric Co." and "General Dynamics  Corp. Electric  Boat Div."  These two companies are
unrelated.  When entering multiple words for facility name, you may retrieve records that
contain only one of the words in the facility, as  well  as records for facilities using the
complete name.  This  may also  result in retrieval of certain irrelevant records.  For example,
if you search for Du Pont Waynesboro  Plant, you will receive all records with either Du
Pont or Waynesboro in the facility name. To retrieve records for the Du Pont plant located
in Waynesboro only, search first by Dupont then Waynesboro, then combine the two
searches using the boolean operator AND (see 4.5, Refining the Search).

                               CD-ROM User's Manual

-------
 The second method is to use the indexing capability within the TRI software.  All fields in
 the TRI data base files are indexed. When searching for specific data, it is important to use
 the index feature to assist you.  An example of a search where you will benefit from the use
 of the index is when you are looking for records where a term could consist of many
 variations.  If you are unsure of the spelling of name, the indexing.feature will allow you to
 browse through possible names.  To illustrate this feature, suppose you would like to retrieve
 data on the facility name, "General Motors."  First, you should search on the complete
 name, "General Motors."  In addition, there are various abbreviations used for General
 Motors, such as GM,  GMC or General Motors Company. Using the partial term option,
 type   followed by a question mark (?) (e.g., GM?) and press .  The   -
 message, "Searching"  appears.  A  listing of facility names that start with the letters "GM"
" will appear.
                                TRI - KAwareF 
-------
To mark the beginning of a range of consecutive terms, move the highlight bar with the up
and down arrows to the first term to start the range and press .  A down arrow will
appear next to the item.  In our example of the GM terms, mark GM with the F7 key.
Move the highlight bar to the last item in the range that you want and press < F8 >.  An up
arrow will appear next to that item.  In our example, mark GMC-Vandalia with the F8 key.
All the items contained between this range will be searched and listed individually or
combined into sets.  If you need to  select items individually that are not listed consecutively,
highlight each individual item using the up and down arrows and press  < F9 > .  A check
mark will appear next to each item  selected.

When all items are marked, press < ENTER> to begin the search. If you want to expand
your search, you can request information on the terms, General or Motor, using the question
mark (?) as part of your search criteria. If you create more than one set of search criteria,
you can combine these sets together to obtain a complete set.  Combining sets is discussed  in
Section 4.5, Refining the Search.

-------
There are various selections for this option which assist you in creating, printing, and
displaying sets.  Several examples are displayed below.

       Change Output Set - This selection changes the output set number; that is, the set that
       will be displayed on the screen when you press F6=Display to display a record. The
       current output set number appears at the bottom of the screen (above the function key
       options).  The set number entered must be zero or correspond to a set that you have
       already created.  Zero (0) will cause the first record in the entire data base to be
       displayed when you press F6.  The default setting  for the output set number is the last
       set created (see 4.3, F2 = Options). -The output set number changes automatically
       each time that you conduct a new search (unless it was changed from the default
       setting using the F2 or F5 key).    '.          .-.'•-.''

       Change Search Set - This selection allows you to change the specific set number to
       assist in searching for information. If you do not specify a set, the TRI software will
       search the entire data base file (Search Set=0) . Once the search set is changed,
       you must change it back to zero (0) if you wish to resume searching the entire
       database file. Using the Change Search Set option saves time and memory space, as
       the software searches only records contained in the set identified as the search set, not
       the entire data base.  Using the example described previously, you could search for
       the 1992 reporting year and Monsanto for the facility name.  Search for the 1992
       reporting year first.  Press .  Select Change Search Sets and press
       . Type the set number you want to search and press < ENTER >.
       Then search for Monsanto.  The  actual search often takes less time than using the
       Combine  Sets option described below.

       Combine Sets - This selection allows you to combine user-defined sets with additional
       conditions of AND, OR, or NOT.  You would use this Combine Sets option
       (Combine with OR) to combine  all the sets that were created in our example of GM
       in Section 4.4.1.  To understand  the difference between these three conditions, let us ,
       use an example for each condition. For purposes of the this example, assume that
       you have already created one set  containing records for facilities reporting releases of
       the chemical substance benzene and a second set for facilities  of the Monsanto
      'Corporation.

       •     Combine Set 1 (Benzene)  AND Set 2 (Monsanto) - The TRI software will
             search the data base for records meeting both conditions; that is, Monsanto
             facilities that report releases of the chemical substance benzene.

       •     Combine Set 1 (Benzene)  OR Set 2 (Monsanto) - The TRI  software will search
             the data base and retrieve  either records  submitted by Monsanto regardless of
           . the chemical substance or  records for benzene releases regardless of the source
             of those releases. Records meeting both conditions would also be retrieved.

-------
             Combine Set 1 (Benzene) but  NOT Set 2 (Monsanto) - The TRI software will
             search the data base for records that meet the first condition but not the second
             condition. For example, this search would retrieve records identifying
             benzene releases except for benzene releases  reported by Monsanto.  NOTE:
             When combining with NOT, you will obtain  different results depending on
             which condition  (or set) you specify first.

       Press  one additional time.  You may give this newly created set a
       name.  If you do not give the set a name, the software will generate a name
       automatically.

       Delete a Set - This selection allows you to delete a specific set.  Once you have
       requested a deletion,  that set will be highlighted on the screen to indicate that it has
       been deleted.

       Delete All Sets - This selection allows you to delete all sets containing search results
              at once.  When you use  this option, the  system will ask you to confirm
              that you wish to delete all  sets.  If you answer .YES by typing   to
              the erasure of all sets, you will no longer be able to access any user-
              defined sets.   All user-defined sets will have to be recreated.  If you
              answer NO by typing  , no sets will be erased.   (To save records
              for a particular search before deleting all sets, see Section 4.8.1,
              Exporting Sets.)

save the file to a drive other than the C drive, enter the drive letter as well.  A message will
appear telling you the set has been saved.

Load Set List - This selection allows you to load a set list that you have previously saved.
When you load a set list,  the current set list will be erased unless it was previously saved.
Enter the path and file name for the set list that you wish to load and press  < ENTER > .
The set list will appear on the screen just as though you had just finished; searching the data

Print  a Set - This selection .allows you to print a set to  a local printer. Enter the  set number
to be printed. You may print complete records  or selected fields from the records in the set.
You may also sort the records by designated data elements.  (See Section 4.7, Printing
Results, for more information.)  If the set number you  have entered does not correspond to
an existing set number, the field in the box erases the value you have entered and displays  a
blank. Enter  the correct set number.  The set will be printed on a local printer.

Remove Empty Sets - This selection will rewrite your set list to remove sets that do not
contain any records if, for example, you had conducted an unsuccessful search earlier..

Save Set List - This selection allows you to save a set list to any drive so that you can
retrieve it at a later date.

It is important to distinguish between Saving a Set List and Exporting  a Set.  When you save
a set list, you are preserving the search strategies and "record pointers" for earlier retrievals
so you can build on them later (e.g., by combining them).  When you export a set, you are
manipulating the actual records retrieved as a result of conducting a search. Using the
earlier example, if you conducted searches for the chemical benzene, then Monsanto
facilities, and finally, combined those searches to create a third set, the three searches
together would comprise a set list.  If you saved the set list, you could later reload the set
list and continue the  session by creating a fourth set,  then a fifth, etc.  However, none of the
actual TRI records representing benzene, Monsanto, etc.  would be saved.  To preserve the
actual search results, that is the TRI records reported for benzene,  Monsanto, etc. you would
have to EXPORT each set one set at a time.  See also Section 4.8, Downloading TRI Data.

Select New Data File - This selection returns you to the SELECT DATA FILES SCREEN
to select another data file. Press   to return  to the DATA FILE MAIN MENU.
Exercising this option will cause you to lose any sets that you have already constructed.
(This software feature is useful in products that contain multiple files  on each disc.
However, since each of the TRI discs contain only one fielded data base - RELEASES or
TREATMNT - you will seldom have any reason to use this feature.)

Temp Exit to DOS - This selection allows you to temporarily exit to DOS. When you are
finished using DOS and wish to return to TRI where you left off, type  at the
DOS  prompt and press < ENTER >.


4.6     Displaying Search  Results

After you have conducted a search, a summary of the search results (including the set
number, the  number of records found, and a description or name of the search) will appear
on the screen.  You  will  notice a status line at the bottom of the screen, which highlights the
Search Set, Output Set, and Workspace.

       •      Search Set - identifies which set is being searched.  Search Set = 0  (the
              default setting)  means that the entire database will be searched.  It may be
              changed to narrow a search using the Change Search Set option on the F5 =
              Sets menu, as outlined in Section 4.5.  Remember, if you wish to resume
              searching the entire data base, you must change the search set back to zero.
 Page 4-20
                                                                 CD-ROM User's Manual

-------
       " •      Output Set - identifies which set will be displayed when you press the F6 key.
               The number of the output set changes automatically each time you conduct a
               new search, or you may change it to review an earlier search using the Change
               Output Set option on the F5 =  Sets menu, as outlined in Section 4.5.

        •      Workspace - identifies the amount of free space (in bytes) available for storing
               search results (without saving sets) during a search session.

 If you are satisfied with the search results after viewing the summary, you are ready to view
 the actual records that resulted from it.  Press F6 = Display.  Or, if you wish to display
 results of an earlier search, select F5 =  Sets option and the pull-down menu appears.
 Highlight the Display a Set selection and press < ENTER >.  Enter the set number and
. press < ENTER >.  To view results of an earlier, example, enter the set number for facility
 name — Monsanto.                             _

 The third line of the RECORD DISPLAY SCREEN (under the function keys Fl, F2, etc.)
 provides the name of the set you are currently reviewing.  Directly below it, in the text box,
 the first record in the set is displayed.  The first line indicates  the number of the record you
 are viewing within the total records in that set as well as the line number in the record upon
 which the cursor is presently resting.  These numbers will be helpful as you navigate through
 the display.

 Each TRI record from the RELEASES file and the TREATMNT file requires 18 and 5
 screens, respectively, to display in their  entirety.  Each line of data  is preceded by a
 mnemonic code identifying the information reported.  For example,  FM is facility name and
 FAD means facility street address.  (A complete list, of the data elements is provided as an
 appendix to this document and in the Quick User Guide distributed with the TRI CD-ROM
 discs.  In addition, definitions for each of the  fields are contained on each disc in a file
 called README.EPA.)
 4.6.1   Reviewing  Displayed Data

 There are several other options to assist you in reviewing records.  These options are
 provided at the bottom of the screen when-a record is displayed. These options are:

        •      0-9 =Speed - This option allows you to control the speed of reviewing all the
               records in  a set.  Type 0 (stop) to 9 (fast) to scroll through the records.  You
               will notice that the records will scroll at different speeds,  depending on the
               number value that you have chosen.  Type <0> to stop all scrolling.

        •      «- -»=Change Record - This option allows you to scroll down through the
           ,   records in  a set by using the left arrow or to scroll up by  using the right
               arrow.
 CD-ROM User's Manual
Page 4 - 21

-------
              1t = Scroll Record - This option allows you to scroll through all the data
             within the record displayed on the screen by using the down arrow to scroll
             down and the up arrow to scroll up through the record.
4.6.2   Sorting of Data

Sorting data into the order in which you wish to view; print, or download records may be a
very important step ,in making the data more useful to you.  For example, you may wish to
list reports in descending order by the amount of chemicals that are released into the
environment. Or, you may wish to rank all reports submitted for your locality by company
name, then by the name of the chemical reported.  TRI is very flexible in allowing you to
order the output according your criteria.

The example we will use here will walk you through the  steps for sorting data when you are
preparing to display a set using the Display a Set option on the F5 = Sets pull-down menu.
The same sequence of screens appear when you are printing and downloading records or
using the Action Menu described in the following section for viewing records.

Select Display a Set using the pull-down menu for F5 =  Sets.  A screen will appear asking
you to choose from among 10 options the order in which you would like to have the data
displayed.  Choosing the first option, Display by Default  Order, will result in records sorted
by their TRI submission number.  (The TRI submission number is a unique identifier
assigned to each report as it is received at the EPA Reporting Center.  It is comprised of 15
alphanumeric characters  ending with the state abbreviation.) You may also choose the

The last option on the list, Display By User Defined Rank, offers the greatest flexibility of
all. To demonstrate this alternative,, position the highlight bar over User Defined Rank and
press  < ENTER >.  A second screen listing the mnemonic tags for the data elements will be
displayed.  For each field that you wish to sort by, position the highlight bar over the field
name and press  < ENTER >.  Type in a number representing the order by which you wish
to sort. For example, if you want to sort first by chemical name  (NAME) then by the sum
of releases into the environment (SENV), type 1 next to NAME and 2 next to SENV. To
sort SENV in descending order (highest'releases to lowest releases), type 1 next to NAME
and -2 next to SENV. Finally, use the up arrow to position the highlight bar over End Rank
Selections at the top of the list of data elements and press  < ENTER >. The TRI system
will then sort the data.    .                                            „

Once  you have sorted the data, you can select to view:

4.7    Printing Results

You can print a single rebord or a group of records (sets). Make sure you have a local
printer attached to your computer that is turned on and ready to begin printing.

To print a single record, while viewing a record on the screen, press  < ENTER > to display
the ACTION MENU. Use the dov/n arrow to select, Print Current Record and press
 < ENTER >.  The current record will print on your local printer.

To print a set of records, use the selections from the F5 = Sets option.  Press .  Use
the down arrow to choose Print a Set and press  < ENTER >.  Type the number of the set.
Using the example in this text, type the number of one of the sets that you have created and
press < ENTER >.  Indicate the order in which data should be entered. When the
information appears, use the down arrow to choose one of the three formats and press
 :    .'        ,           ,           -               .          /  .

       •     RELEASES (all the fields in the record including blanks)
       •     RELEASES - BRIEF (all fields in the record containing data)
       •     USER SELECTED OUTPUT (gives you a list of fields that can be printed.
             Use the F7, F8, and F9 keys (described in Section 4.4.1, Indexing of Data) to
             mark specific fields to be printed)

Use the down arrow to choose Consecutive Print or One Page At a Time.  Check your
printer and press  when you are ready to print.  Consecutive Print will result in
one record printing after another, without regard to page breaks.  Selection of One Page at a
Time will cause each record to begin printing at the top of a new page.
4.8    Downloading from TRI

If you would like to download from TRI to reformat data or use it with another software
program, you can use one of two methods provided by the TRI software. One way is to
EXPORT your sets, using the Export A Set option provided on the F5 = Sets pull-down
menu. You can export sets into any one of several widely used  formats, including comma
delimited (ASCII) format, fixed field, dBASE (.dbf), or Lotus (.wks) formats.  You can also
export data exactly  as it appears on the computer screen (print to disk).  Each of these
formats  are described in greater detail below (see 4.8.1).

In addition, the TRI CD-ROM provides a-special capability for downloading data according
to your particular specifications using a special feature called the Form Designer.  (See
Section 4.8.2.) Note that you must use the Form Designer, not  Export a Set, when
downloading data elements from records containing repeating fields.  For example, a single
facility may report up to  six SIC codes representing industries in which it participates.  In
order to capture  all six possible occurrences (not just the first),  use the Form Designer and
designate all six SIC Codes for inclusion in your report (see  Section 4.8.2).
CD-ROM User's Manual
Page 4 - 25

-------
4.8.1  Exporting Sets

We will use the same set example that was used for printing (please refer to Section 4.7,
Printing Results to review the example). Press  to retrieve the pull-down menu for
the F5 = SETS option. Use the down arrow to choose Export a Set and press  < ENTER >.
Type the number of one the sets created as an example set and press < ENTER > .

The next screen allows you to choose one of following five formats for downloading data:

Comma-Delimited - This format is the most flexible for using with a variety of other
software.  Data is saved in one long string.  Text in each field is enclosed in quotes and
fields are separated by comas (for example, "ABC Manufacturing Facility","1065 Davidson
Pike","Andersonville","IN""78856-9976","","","Benzene"). The system automatically adds
the suffix .csv to the filename that you specify when you  save data.

Fixed-Field -  Data is saved in one long string.  Each field begins in the same position  in
each record.  Unlike comma-delimited format, fields appear in the export set exactly as they
are in the TRI record,  including blanks at the end of the field (for example,  ABC
Manufacturing Company     1065 Davidson Pike     Andersonville   IN 78856-9976
                 Benzene).  The .system automatically adds the suffix .fff to the filename
that you specify when  you save data.

dBase - Data  is saved in the data base format required by dBase IV programs.  (Files created
using the dBase export format do not always work with earlier versions of dBase. In order
to use dBase III to manipulate data from TRI, create a new format using the Form designer
and export the form to be used in dBase III.)  The system automatically adds the suffix .dbf
to the filename that you specify when you save data. In order to use the Calculate Releases
feature, you must first create and export a file in dBase format (see Chapter Five).

Lotus - Data is saved in the spreadsheet format required by Lotus 1-2-3 programs.  The
system automatically adds the suffix .wks to the filename that you specify when you save
data.

Print to Disk  - Data is saved on your disk exactly as it would appear on your screen,
including field tags and with each data element beginning on a new line.  The system
automatically  adds the  suffix .p2d to the filename that you specify when you save data. An
example of the print to disk format is shown below:

-------
 After you choose the output format from among the options described above, a screen
 allowing you to choose the order for sorting the records will appear.  Choose one of the ten
 options allowed.  (See 4.6.2 for a more detailed description of the sort options.)

 A menu will appear allowing you to choose from among three options:

        •   .  RELEASES - Use this option with caution.  It saves all fields in the record,
              including blank fields. The resulting file may be very large, depending on the
              data format that you have chosen.  (For example, a sample file containing 100
              RELEASES records in dBase format required 717,981 bytes of disk space.

        •     RELEASES (BRIEF)  - This format is often preferred for screen displays and
              the print to disk export option.  This choice is not recommended for
              downloading.  It saves only those fields containing data, causing records  to
              vary  in content and length from one to another.  This may cause a problem
              later  if you try to import the downloaded data into other software.

"- '     •     USER SELECTED OUTPUT - This option allows you to choose which fields
              to  download.  Press < ENTER > to display a list of all fields.  Use the F7,
              F8, and F9 keys (described in Section 4.4.1, Indexing of Data) to mark
              specific fields to be printed.

 Type the name of the file to export and the path, if it is different than the path currently
 displayed.   As an example, type <92FItE>  and press < ENTER>.  The system will add
 a suffix to the file name based on the format you have chosen for the data.
 4.8.2   Form Designer

 As described in earlier sections, the TRI software provides two standardized formats for
 printing and exporting data called RELEASES and,RELEASES (BRIEF).  You can also
 create a User Defined Format at the time you are printing or exporting the set. In addition,
 there is a fourth option which allows you to create your own customized format and save that
 format to use again and again.  This option is called the Form Designer.

 It is essential that you use the Form Designer when you wish to download partial
 records that include fields that occur more than once in a single record.  Examples of
 fields that may occur more than once in a single record are the Standard Industrial
 Classification (SIC) and SIC Code, both of which may be present up to six times in each
 record.  If you are downloading complete records, you can use the RELEASES option, but it
 may require a lot of disk space.  If records containing fields such as SIC are downloaded
 using the RELEASES (BRIEF) option or a User Defined Format (which is different from the
 CD-ROM User's Manual
Page 4 - 27

-------
 Form Designer explained in this section), each record is a different length.  When you try to
 import them into other software, you will find that additional occurrences of fields like the
 SIC code displace other data, resulting in fields containing the wrong data.  The Form
 Designer prevents this from occurring by saving space for the additional occurrences in each
 record, regardless of whether or not data are actually present.

 If you plan to download data that requires use of the Form Designer, design the form first,
 before performing the search.  (If you have already performed your search, you can use F5
 = Sets to Save Set List.  After creating the. form, use Load Set List to recreate your search
 in one easy step.) As you create a new form, you will give it a name of your choosing.
 After you have finished designing the form and exit the Form Designer, you will search the
 RELEASES or TREATMNT file to create the set that you wish to download. Then, press
 F5 = SETS, choose Export A Set, and follow the instructions in Section 4.8.1.  This time,
 the form that you created using the Form Designer will appear with the other report formats.

 Before you begin to use the. Form Designer, you should consider first how you wish the data
 to appear,  as you would when you create a report.  It is especially important that you decide
 which fields the report should include and in what order you would like them listed. You
 may find it helpful to layout ah example of the form first, before actually creating the form.

 To illustrate how to use the Form Designer, we will create a Form called "Toxic Releases by
 Facility and Industry." It will list, for every record in the search set we designate,  the name
 of the reporting facility, the chemical released,  the sum of all releases into the environment,
 and up to six SICs representing industries in which that facility is involved.

 In order to use the Form Designer, you must exit the TRI CD-ROM.  Press F10.  Enter
  to confirm that you wish to exit the system. Use the down  arrow to highlight Quit
 TRI CD-ROM Disc on the DATA BASE SELECTION MENU and press < ENTER >.

 At the DOS prompt, type KADFDES  @ followed by the complete path and the name of the
 file from which you wish to download data. For example, if you are using the Releases file
 on Disc 1 that was installed in a directory called REL, it should look like this:

       C:\REL > KADFDES ©Releases < ENTER >
                                                            J     • ' •        '     ' .
 If the form you are designing will contain data from the Treatmnt file contained on Disc 2
 and installed, for example, in a directory called TRT, enter:

       C:\TRT >KADFDES ©Treatmnt  < ENTER >

 Use the up arrow to move the cursor from O (Omit) to L (Label + value) and press
 < ENTER >. Press < ENTER > again to pass Missing Value.  That completes the detailed
 description for Facility Name.

 Press  < F5 > to begin  describing the second data element that you would like to appear on
 your report.  (Notice that the Item Number changes each time you press   to identify a
 new data element.)  To continue with our example, repeat all of the steps to describe the
 chemical name, beginning with selecting NAME from the Data Field  menu.  Press  
• again and add'the data  element sum of all environmental releases (SENV) to the form.

 The fourth data element that we identified for our sample report,  standard industrial
 classification (SIC), is a little different because it can occur up to six  times in a single
 record.  It is possible to include just selected occurrences, for example, just the first SIC
 reported, or you can include all of the information, i.e., all six SICs or blank fields. For our
 report, we decided to include all six SICs.

 To choose all six, we will need to go through the process of defining  SIC, similar to the way
 we already defined facility name and chemical name,  six times.  To select SIC, press
 .  Choose SIC from the Data Field menu.  For the Item Label, we decide to enter
 Industry (1) to show that this is the first industry classification that was reported. Press
  repeatedly until Missing L Rule is highlighted.  This time, after you change the
 field from O (Omit) to  L (Label + value) and press < ENTER >, the cursor will highlight
 First Array Element. Press  < ENTER > to accept 1 (one) as the First Array Element.  The
 cursor will move to Last Array Element.  Type <1> and press  < ENTER >.

 Repeat this process five times for the additional SICs, using Industry (2), Industry (3), etc.
 as the Item Label and changing the First Array Element and Last Array Element to  2, then
 3, etc.  (See the- screen below, which shows the Page Detail for Form screen after.the data
 was entered  for the sixth SIC. Note the Item Label, First Array Element and Last Array
 Element all indicate that it is the sixth occurrence for that field.)                     _   '

5.0     Performing  Calculations
           (KASTAT)
The calculation feature (also referred to as KASTAT) is used to compute the total
amounts for specific sets of data. With the calculation feature, you must use the
RELEASES data file which has numeric fields to retrieve information.

5.1  Calculating Data

KASTAT is a useful feature to obtain total release amounts.  We will use the following
example to explain this feature. We would like to determine the total amount of
chlorine released in 1992 in the state of Delaware. You will need to retrieve the
following information first, before using the calculation feature:

    ~" •    Substance Name - Chlorine
      •    Facility State - DE
      •    Reporting Year - 1992

You will need to follow the search and  combine instructions to retrieve as set of records
for the above described criteria. Review Chapter 4, Toxic Release Inventory, to assist
you.

Export the set you have created by  performing the following steps:

      1.    Choose the set number
      2.    Choose dBASE  as the type of export file
      3.    Choose default order
      4.    Choose user selected output and mark only the following fields by using
           the F9 key:
           - Field 1:  Sum Air Releases (SAIR)
           - Field 2:  Sum Wafer Releases (SW)
           - Field 3:  Sum Land Releases (SL)
           - Field 4:  Sum All Releases to Environment (SENV)
           - Field 5:  Sum Transfer to Publicly Owned Treatment Works (SPOTW)
           - Field 6:  Sum of Offsite Transfers (SOFF)
           - Field?:  Sum POTW and Offsite Transfers (SPO)
           - FieldS:  Sum Releases  and Transfers (SRT)
      5.    Name the file by typing a name and pressing < ENTER >.

Press  to exit to the DATA BASE SELECTION MENU.

There is one screen displayed for each field in the dBase file that you created.  For our
example, which contained eight fields containing numbers representing release amounts, eight
screens  were generated.

Use the right and left arrows to move from one screen to another.  Press 

to print each screen. When calculations are completed, a new file (.ANL) is created containing the screen text. In DOS you can print the screen displays out from the ANL file (e.g., 92DE- CHL.ANL for the example). Or, as the screens are displayed, press

repeatedly eight times, to receive a hard copy of each screen of information for the eight fields you have selected. - There is no HELP (Fl) option available for the KASTAT selection, however, a description of the feature can be viewed or printed from the CD-ROM disc, i.e., L:\>type TRISTAT\KASTAT.TXT. For a list of field labels for numeric fields that can be used for performing calculations, type or print TRISTATYKASTAT.FLD. Page 5-2 CD-ROM User's Manual

CASRN (RN)  - The Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number  (CASRN)
consists of up to  eight digits  (and two hyphens)  and uniquely
identifies a specific chemical substance.  The number is printed in
hyphenated format: two to five digits, hyphen, two digits, hyphen,
one  digit.    For  example,  formaldehyde  is  50-00-0;  chlorine is
7782-50-5.   The CASRN is  commonly used to index chemical data and
can  be  useful in locating  other  information about the chemical.
The CASRN may be withheld as  a trade  secret.  A CASRN will not be
provided  for  mixtures  or  trade  name   products containing  an
unidentified section 313 chemical,  Chemical  categories  covered by
Section 313 do not have CASRNs because they  include many distinct
chemical substances.

Centroid Latitude (CLAT)  -Centroid latitude in degrees (3 digits),
minutes (2 digits) and seconds (2 digits)  is  the midpoint latitude
of the area defined by the facility zip code.   This information was
added by EPA to all submissions and is not reported on EPA  Form R.
Though  not  as exact as site  specific latitude,  it is useful for
geographic  mapping.

Centroid Longitude  (CLONG)  - Centroid  longitude in  degrees (3
digits), minutes  (2 digits)  and seconds (2 digits)  is  the midpoint
of  the area  defined by  the  facility zip code.   This field is
provided by EPA and  is not  reported on EPA Form R.  Though not as
exact  as  site specific longitude,  it is useful for  geographic
mapping.

Controlled  By  (OCTL)  - This  indicates  whether the reporting
facility controls the  off-site  location to which  it transfers
wastes.

Covered Facility (FCOV)  -  A facility  could submit  a report on
releases of the  section 313 chemical from the entire facility at
the  location  or on separate establishments within the  facility at
that location.   This data field indicates whether the  submission
covers  the entire facility or  only  an  establishment within the
facility.   If a submission covers only part of a facility,  several
submissions  may  have   to  be   considered   to  develop complete
information on the total  releases of  the  chemical from  the entire
facility. Two codes  were  used:
                  a   An  entire  covered facility.
                  b   A  part  of  a covered facility.

EPA  ID Number (EPAN) - An,identification number assigned by EPA to

For example, treatment of a liquid waste by filtration may create
a solid  residue that is then  treated;  the liquid  and  solid are
listed as separate wastestreams on Form R.  Wastestream types are
identified by the following codes:
             A    Gaseous
             W    Wastewater
             L    Liquid waste other than dissolved in water

Influent Concentration (INFLC)  - The  influent concentration is the
percentage of the waste made up of the chemical as the waste Centers
the treatment process.  This figure includes only the section 313
chemical for which the report was filed.   For chemical categories,
the concentrations are reported for the parent chemical rather than
for  the  entire  compound.    Note  that  EPA  requires _ reporting
facilities to  list, only the concentration of the  chemical as it
enters the wastestream.  If the wastestream is treated sequentially
using different treatment methods, the reporting facility may enter
the initial influent concentration  for  each treatment method, or
may enter the actual concentration when  the method  is applied, but
is not required to enter either for any treatment method except the
first applied to the wastestream.  The codes used to identify the
range of influent concentration are:
             1    Greater than 1 percent
             2     100 parts  per million  (0.01  percent)  to 10,000

State/County  FIPS Code  (FIPS)  -  The  five-digit FIPS  (Federal
Information Processing Standards)  code can be used to identify the
state and county of the reporting facility.  EPA added the code to.
each submission.

Stormwater Percent (SPER)  - For releases to water, spme percentage
of the release may come from rainwater runoff  from building roofs,
storage piles, or other areas.  The percentage of the release due
to  stormwater  runoff must  be  estimated  if the  facility  has
monitoring data on the chemical.

Stream Name  (STRN) - The name of the receiving stream(s)  to which
the facility releases  listed  chemicals.   Estimates  on Form R are
specific to the receiving stream.  If a reporting facility releases
the chemical to more than one receiving stream, the releases to all
streams must be added to determine total releases to water.  Note
that the reporting facility may list receiving streams to which it
does not release the chemical covered by the submission.

Substance Name.   (NAME) -   The name of the  section 313 chemical.

Sum Air Releases (SAIR) - Summation of non-point and point chemical
releases in pounds.

Sum All Releases to Environment (SENV) - Summation of all chemical
releases to the environment in pounds.

Treatment Efficiency (TREFF)  - This provides an estimate of the
percentage of the chemical physically removed, destroyed, or
converted by the treatment methods.  Treatment efficiencies for
chemical compounds are reported for the chemical.  Most treatment
methods are  more  effective  at higher  influent concentrations so
influent  concentrations  should  be  considered  when  comparing
treatment efficiencies.  For wastestreams treated sequentially by
several treatment methods,  reporting  facilities may  submit the
treatment efficiency for all  methods taken together. The reporting
facility is not required to  list treatment  efficiency for any but
the final step, but may list  the aggregate efficiency for all steps
in the  sequence.  For example, if the  aggregate  efficiency is 75
percent, the facility may  list the 75 percent with the last step of
the sequence or may enter 75 percent with each step.

Treatment  Method  (TRM) - The method  of  treatment used  on the
wastestream to reduce the amount  of the chemical being released.
The codes fall into the following general categories:

Answer:  The total release of Benzene by petroleum refineries for
1992 was 6,212/011.  The average air release of benzene for 1992
was 33,397.90 Ibs. (See  below.)


                   EXPLANATION OF KASTAT RECORD


1.    Field number  refers  to which field  the  calculation was
performed .on.  Field number:  1  is Sum Air Release  (SAIR).

2.  Number of records refers to the number of records in the  set of
data on which the calculations are being performed.   The Number of
Records in the set of data was 186.

3.  Number of Blanks refers  to the number of records wh'ich had a
blank or no data in that field.   Zero records had blanks in
the Sum Air Release field.

4.   The Lowest  single  release  of  benzene  to the  air was five
pounds.   The Highest  single release of benzene to  the  air was
499,000 pounds.

5.  The Range is the difference between  the Highest  and the  Lowest
single release.  In this instance, the Range equals  498,995  Ibs.,
which is 499,000 Ibs.  (Highest)  minus 5  Ibs.  (Lowest).  .

6.  The Sum is the total sum of the field on which the calculation
is  being processed  (in  this  case  the  Sum Air  Release field.)
Therefore  the total release  of  benzene to the air by petroleum
refineries in 1992 was 6,212,011 Ibs.

7.  The  MEAN WITH  and  W/O 0 is the  average of  the field on which
the calculation is being processed.

             QUICK START INSTRUCTIONS  FOR
             UNDERSTANDING  TRI
BACKGROUND: Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act
(EPCRA) of 1986 required EPA to establish an inventory of toxic chemical emissions from
manufacturing facilities. The purpose of this reporting requirement is to inform the public and
government officials about routine and accidental releases of toxic chemicals to the environment.
EPCRA established that the public has a "right-to-know" environmental information reported to
EPA under the  statute.  The Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) has been used extensively for
research, by neighborhood coalitions and public interest groups seeking  reductions in toxic
releases, and as the basis for industry, participation in voluntary pollution prevention efforts.
EPA also uses the data base to assist in development of environmental programs and rulemaking.

REPORTING- REQUIREMENTS: Facilities subject to TRI reporting are required to submit
an EPA Form R every July 1st for each chemical they released into the~environment (e.g., air,
water, etc.) or transferred offsite for treatment or disposal during the preceding calendar year.
The reporting requirement applies to owners and operators of facilities that have 10 or more full-
time employees; belong to Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes 20 through 39 (i.e.,
manufacturing facilities);  and  manufacture (including importing), process  or otherwise use a
toxic chemical in excess of specified thresholds. Over 300 chemicals have been designated as
toxic to date. New chemicals can be designated as  toxic through rulemaking and petitions.

IMPACT OF TRI: The inception^of a national toxics inventory has resulted in greater public
and industry awareness of the extent and effects of chemical pollution.  Since implementation
of TRI,  total  annual  chemical  releases  by  U.S. manufacturing  facilities  have declined
considerably. Many companies have instituted measures to prevent chemical pollution, such as
substituting safer chemicals or reengineering processes.  In 1990, Congress passed the Pollution
Prevention Act (PPA), resulting in expansion of TRI.   Beginning in 1991, companies were
required to report additional data about pollution  prevention activities and projected future
releases. TRI is continuing to develop: EPA is planning to add more chemicals and is studying
options for extending coverage to additional industries.  In 1994, Clinton signed an Executive
Order requiring Federal facilities to submit TRI reports.

INSTALLATION OF CD-ROM SOFTWARE:  Follow instructions for installing CD-ROM
as outlined in User Manual and in the Brief User Guide that accompanied the disc.  These
instructions explain how to set up a separate DOS directory for each disc, and type e:install
(when e is the CD-ROM drive). Do not follow the installation instructions on the card inserted
in the CD-ROM case as they are incorrect.

DATA BASE STRUCTURE:  The  1987-1992 TRI CD-ROM set,  comprised of two discs,
supersedes all earlier editions of the CD-ROM.  The TRI data base  is divided into two files,
which appear on separate discs.           -   .

Disc 1 contains the TRI RELEASES file.  This, the larger and more frequently-used file,
contains comprehensive facility identification information. The RELEASES file provides the
total amounts of the  chemical released to air,  water, land,  publicly owned treatment works
(POTW) and transferred to offsite locations.  It also describes how the chemical is used, the
maximum amount onsite during  the year, and pollution prevention efforts such as  source
reduction and recycling.  Use when:  Looking for general information about facilities (i.e.
location, Dun & Bradstreet #s), chemicals (i.e. maximum amount on site or use of chemical),
or industries (SIC codes and trends).  Also search by releases to specific bodies of water (i.e.,
Lake Superior) or POTWs or commercial offsite locations where wastes are transported (i.e.,
ABC Waste Co. or names and addresses of offsite locations in Pittsburgh, PA).

Disc 2 contains the TRI TREATMENT file.  The TREATMNT file contains data on waste
treatment methods and efficiency, and waste minimization. Use when:  Looking for information
on waste treatment.

CHEMICAL SUBSTANCE FACT SHEETS:  Each disc contains a complete set of fact sheets
for each chemical listed on TRI. They describe, in layman's terms, ecological and health effects
resulting from release and exposure;  identifying and treating symptoms, and OSHA exposure
limits and other standards pertaining to the  chemical.  Use when:   After searching TRI to
identify the chemicals released in a specific locality or other criteria.

PERFORMING CALCULATIONS (KASTAT): This feature allows you to sum, average, and
perform other calculations using  a dBase file exported  from TRI.   There  are eight numeric
fields, representing different types of releases.  The system allows you to page through screen
displays showing calculations performed on each amount field contained in  the dBase file.

README FILES: The CD-ROM contains four files that provide documentation for the database
and other information:                ,
   README.EPA contains descriptions of all the data fields including codes and translation
    of coded information.                                                     '
   README.RGS contains the names, addresses and phone  numbers of the 10 Federal EPA
    regional contacts.
   README.SIC contains the four-digit Standard Industrial Classification codes for 20-39 and
    the code descriptions.
   README.STA contains the names, addresses and phone numbers of the State and Territorial
    TRI contacts.

 common to both the RELEASES file and the TREATMNT file (for example, by facility
 name or location or chemical), search each file separately, then sort records into the same
 order. Each file should contain the same number of records.  Or, retrieve multiple sets of
 data and match records in each file, by EPA Submission Number which uniquely identifies
 each record. (Linking files requires use of dBase or other software not on the CD-ROM.)

   TO NARROW A  SEARCH BY COMBINING SEARCH STATEMENTS WITH "AND"

.There are two methods for combining search statements to narrow a search:
   1.  Combine sets with "AND" (example 1).
   2.  Change Search Set to limit searching to records within a previously created search set
      (example 2).

•The most efficient method depends on the size the search set retrieved. If the sets  are not
 too large, use boolean searching shown in example 1.  Otherwise, if one search yields
 thousands of records, follow example  2.  By Changing Search Set, you are limiting your
 search to records meeting the first criteria, instead of searching the entire data base. If you '
 Change Search Set, you must change it back to 0 (zero) to resume searching the entire data
 base.

 EXAMPLE 1: Retrieve all releases for NJ for 1992.

 1. Search for NJ as the Facility State. Press F3, highlight Facility State, press , type NJ, press.
   < enter>. 99,999 records retrieved.

2. Press F5=SETS. Highlight Change Search Sets, press < enter >.  Type 1 for set to search in, press
   < enter >. (Note Search Set Number at bottom of screen now = 1.)
3. Search for 1992 as the Reporting Year.  Press F3, highlight Reporting Year, press < enter >, highlight
   1992, press .  System searches only the 99,999 records from step 1. 9,000 records retrieved.

  TO EXPAND A SEARCH BY COMBINING SEARCH STATEMENTS WITH "OR"
                                  AND USING THE INDEX

Follow the directions for NARROWING A SEARCH (Example 1) but choose to Combine Sets
with OR.  Plan to search as many synonyms for a term as possible  by using  the database's
index.  All searchable fields are indexed.                               •

EXAMPLE:  Search for all General Motors  Company facilities.

General Motors can be found under GM or GMC or General Motors or General Motors Company. Hint: Search
both the facility name and parent company  name fields.  If you enter General Motors, you will get  a search
equivilent to General < AND > Motors. There are no adjacency operators for searching this data base. False drops
may occur. If you are unsure of terms or spelling, use truncation (?) to browse the  index for available terms.

1. Press F3=SELECT
2. Use arrow keys to go to Facility Name  < enter >
3. Enter search term with the question mark (?) to look at the index and choose the  best term(s).GM?

6.  There is one screen for each field that is computed.  Use the right and left arrow keys to go from one to
another. To print all records, press p then right arrow to change records until all eight screens are printed.

                           EXPLANATION OF KASTAT FIELDS
1.  Field number refers to which field the calculation was performed on. Field number: 1 is Sum Air Release.

2.  Number of records refers to the number of records in the set of data on which the calculations are being
performed. The Number of Records in the set of data was 36.
3.  Number of Blanks refers to the number of records which had a blank or no data in that field. No records had
Blanks in the Sum Air Release field, therefore all records had releases of Toluene to the Air.
4.  The Lowest single release of Toluene to the air was 3 pounds.
The Highest single release of Toluene to the air was 1,630,700 pounds.
5.  The Range is the difference between the Highest and the Lowest single release. In this instance Highest minus
Lowest (1,630,700 - 3 = 1,630,697).
6.  ***The Sum is the total sum of the field on which the calculation is being processed (in this case the Sum Air
Release field.)  Therefore the total release of Toluene in MD in 1990 to the air was 2,215,315 Ibs.
***The SUM data is the most useful.                                                '
7.  The MEAN WITH and W/O 0 is the average of the field on which the calculation is being processed.
Therefore the average release of Toluene in MD for 1990 by each facility was 61,536.52 Ibs.

                 QUICK START INSTRUCTIONS  FOR
      DESIGNING  FORMS  FOR  PRINTING
              AND  EXPORTING  TRI  DATA
THE CD COMES WITH TWO FORMS ALREADY AVAILABLE FOR EACH FILE (RELEASES AND
TREATMENT). THESE FORMS, FULL RECORD AND BRIEF RECORD, CAN BE USED IMMEDIATELY
FOR EXPORT OR PRINTING.

Use the form designer when you want to download fields that may be repeated in a record.  The form designer
"saves a space" for fields that are  blank.  For example, a facility may have up to six Standard Industrial
Classification Codes (SIC codes), but most have less than three. If you were to download a set of records in an
ASCII, DBASE or Lotus format by using the User Selected Output to choose the fields, each record would be
different be a different length, depending on the number of SIC, codes in each. As a result, the downloaded file
would be unusable by most software.

The form designer allows the user to choose specific fields, including repeating fields like SIC, and download them
in a usable format.  If you are downloading fields with multiple occurrences (but not the full record), it is highly
recommended that you create a form  for downloading.  The Form Designer is menu-driven and relatively easy to
use.  In order to use the Form Designer, save your set list (F5) and exit to DOS.

At the DOS prompt, follow the instructions in the Quick User Guide precisely.  You will be creating your own form
which then appears with the other output choices. You can create as many forms as you like.  When you are
through,  return to the CD-ROM, load your set list (F5) or repeat the search.  This time, when you are ready to
export or print the data,  the name of the form that you just created will be listed along with the other choices for
output formats.

The data exported by using the Form Designer and Comma Delimited are both comma and quote delimited. NOTE:
All fields are treated as character fields by the Form Designer.  If you are converting data into another format
such as Paradox, you must create your file structure by specifying all fields as "character" fields. After conversion,
it is a simple matter to change the field specification from "character" to "numeric" for fields which may be used.
for calculations.  '  - -

When you use the Form Designer, consider how you would want the data displayed in a report. For example:

For a created set of records, you want the first SIC code first and then the first SIC description, the second sic code
second and then the second sic description, etc.

2952            .
Asphalt felts and coatings         .

To do this you must choose sic/array  1, sic code/array 1, sic/array 2, sic code/array 2.                  -
