How to Use the Database

The objective of this database is to facilitate data mining for the key intents and key strategies. The key intents and key strategies of different credit sub-categories were programmed and scripted in such a way that, when a key intent or key strategy is selected, it filters the credit sub-categories, and returns with the list of credit subcategories associated with that specific key intent or key strategy.
 
There are two ways to data mine for key intents or key strategies. One way is to select a key intent or key strategy from inside the credit sub-categories located in the left sidebar under credit categories. The left sidebar contains the list of credits. The five rating systems are listed under each credit category. Each of these rating systems has its own credit subcategories. Once the credit sub-category is selected, the detail description of the credit sub-category pops out in the content area. The details include the list of key intents and key strategies for the specific credit sub-category.
 
Another way to select a key intent or key strategy is from the list of key intents or key strategies under the credit category in the right sidebar. The key intents and key strategies are listed in the alphabetic order from A-Z for a credit category. The alphabetic order can be changed from A-Z to reverse alphabetic order Z-A with a single click on the little triangle. In the right sidebar, the key intents and the key strategies are listed as tags. The credit categories are listed under key intents and key strategies. Each credit categories has its own key intents and key strategies that have been obtained by analyzing the credit sub-categories for different rating systems.
 
To find out the credit sub-categories associated with a specific key intent or key strategy it just requires to select that key intent or key strategy. It does not matter, whether it has been selected from inside the credit sub-categories in the left sidebar or from the credits in the right sidebar. The selection will list the credit sub-categories in the content area. A single click on the read more link or on the credit sub-categories will show the details of that credit sub-category with its specific list of key intents and key strategies.
