    commandreporter.exe needs to be run as a specific user (er, generally the "Third Part Reporter" user, I think). It should be able to use any reports available to that user. You'll need to give that user permission to see whichever reports you want to use.

    You mean, logged in as the "Third Party Reporter" user, you can't see any reports? The "Third Party Reporter" needs to be a member of a group with permissions to see/run reports - an Exam Officer, School Administrator, etc. In SIMS, "System Administrator" isn't like being root, it doesn't mean you see everything, it just gives you access to particular functionality. You can probably also assign individual reports so they can be seen by a particular user (sorry, don't have a copy of SIMS to hand, and I don't use it day-today, so I can't remember exact details).

    Sometimes, the permissions system in SIMS is a little archaic - we have a group called "again" in our database, never have figured out what it does...
