CommandReporter - History of Changes?
I am new to SIMS and looking for a way to get some data. I am using the CommandReporter tool to run reports but I need to be able to get a history of changes for attendance data.
Does anyone know if it's possible to execute the built in 'History of changes' report from the command line?
Or if you can replicate by writing a new report. I can't see how you can use the report designer to build a report that shows what attendance marks have been changed between two dates?
Any help much appreciated!

You can run any report in sims afaik, but the output can only be csv or rtf I believe. I use it here to export mail merge data for address labels each night.
"C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net\CommandReporter.exe" /user:username /password:apasshere /report:"Address Labels - 9" /output:"\\morpheus\ADSHARE\Mail Merge\Student Data\year 9.csv" /quiet
As to the report itself, I've no idea :/

Thanks for the replies DMcCoy,
Yeah I don't 'think' that works for the "History of changes" report as it doesn't appear to be a standard report (You can't open it in report designer). Happy to be told otherwise!
If not does anyone know of any other mechanisum to get hold of that data?
If you can use CommandReporter to run it does anyone know what the report name would be (I've tried 'History of Changes')?
By the way you can get CommandReporter to output xml by giving an output file with an xml extension. The xml file can be made to contain the schema of the report if set to do so in the report definition.

Ah, the history of changes in the Attendance module? The one with a *different* reporting system? I don't think that's going to be possible, I should think command reporter can only see the ones in .net itself.

Thought that might be the case
Any thoughts on alternative ways to run that report or get hold of the same data?
