  1. Hope this formats correctly. If not, its going to be on my web page at http://www.bluestream.org.

    I had an agent that I used to create a .csv file directly off of the web browser. I've converted it here. This is completely generic, and will dump any view listed without requiring conversion. I've added code here to properly format numbers and dates, which you can modify to your tastes. Just make sure you change the view name as necessary.

    What I normally do is create a hidden data dump view with all the raw data. That way when people ask for reports (like most people know what it means anyways,) I give them the benefits of the data dump, so they can create their own custom reports on the fly without waiting for a developer! This usually either pacifies them or confuses them enough to let me get back to my game...
