Instructions for Downloading Report Data for the Performance Reports

Access to the Detail Level Claim Handling Performance Indicator Reports is restricted by a Logon ID/User name and password assigned by the Worker's Compensation Division.

The following instructions will work for Windows 95/98/NT. You will follow one of the two options, A or B, in Step 2 depending on your web browser.

  1. Each report will have a "Save Copy of Report" button at the top of the screen. Click the button and the following instructions, along with the requisite text file, will be displayed:

    "To save a copy of this file in text format, click on this link then choose 'File/Save As' on your browser: nnnnnnnn.txt".
  2. The link referred to above is the text file name as a hyperlink, and it will be displayed as a numeric value, e.g. 99999999.txt.

    NOTE: The Detail Level Claim Handling Performance Indicator Reports file is NOT in a comma delimited format. It can, however, still be imported into a spreadsheet and sorted.

  3. Click the text file hyperlink mentioned above.

    A) If the report text appears in your browser window, click File -> Save As to display the Save Web Page dialog box. Verify that the "Save as type" field is set to Text File (*.txt). If it is not then select it from the drop down list. In the "Save in" field select the drive and/or folder location in which you want to save the file, then click the "Save" button.
    NOTE: You can save the file with a different file name but it must be in text file format.

    B) If a dialog box appears asking you what you want Netscape to do with the file, select "Save this file to disk". Then, when the "Save to" dialog box appears, select the drive and/or folder location where you want the file saved. Click the save button. NOTE: You can save the file with a different file name.

  4. Open your spreadsheet application and open the file saved in Step 2. Some applications have conversion or import wizards, but remember that this file is NOT in a comma delimited format. If you want the ability to use the spreadsheet search and/or sort function when you are done, then in the import wizard select the "Fixed width" radio button, click "Next" and then follow the instructions. When you are done and want to sort the data remember to highlight all applicable rows and columns, making sure to exclude any header text that may be above and/or below the data to be sorted.
