Bespoke Reports


Hi there,

Is there any way I can create reports that I can export to .xls format that will include the entire initial request. I.E. Not just the first couple of lines.



Hi Jon,

There’s not a way to get the entire message in xls at this time. The entire message is available as an RSS feed from each queue/filter. If you’re just looking to get them in a parsable format that’s the best way. If you truly need it in xls then you’d need to have a little code written to convert RSS to xls. I wouldn’t be surprised if a tool to do this is already available online someplace if you searched around a bit.


Ok, thanks alot, I’ll have a look around.



Oh and you could also pull them directly from the database. It may even be possible to do this directly from excel using odbc.
