With the Berkeley-Illinois-Maryland-Association (BIMA) Array we have carried out a 3 mm (80-115.9 GHz) spectral line survey of Orion-KL. Orion-KL is composed of several distinct regions separated by only a few arcseconds, most notably the ``Hot Core'', where N bearing species are most prevalent, and the ``Compact Ridge'', where O bearing species are most prevalent. For our observations the average synthesized beam was 14''x8''. We detected over 700 spectral features from the ``Hot Core'' and over 600 spectral features from the ``Compact Ridge''. We will present the abundances and spatial distribution of the detected species.
