    Why I ask is that I have written 22 Financial reports for our finance and sales departments.

    The IT Dept dedicated 2 months of my time, for me to educate myself on the Financial and sales data and produce these reports. Initial request was for 5 Reports. How it got up to 22 I do not know.

    But the bottom line is now that they are written I do not believe they are being used.

    I would like a simple way of knowing if these reports are being used?

    This query will give you the info


    ex.UserName, ex.Format, ex.TimeStart, cat.Name, ex.Parameters, CONVERT(nvarchar(10), ex.TimeStart, 101) AS rundate

    FROM ExecutionLog AS ex INNER JOIN

    Catalog AS cat ON ex.ReportID = cat.ItemID

    ORDER BY ex.TimeStart DESC


    Hope this is what you are looking for

    Check the [Total Executions] and other statistics for each report:

    SELECT Catalog.Name AS Report_Name,

    AVG(ExecutionLog.TimeDataRetrieval) AS AVG_QueryTime,

    MIN(ExecutionLog.TimeDataRetrieval) AS MIN_QueryTime, MAX(ExecutionLog.TimeDataRetrieval) AS MAX_QueryTime,

    STDEV(ExecutionLog.TimeDataRetrieval) AS SD_QueryTime, AVG(ExecutionLog.TimeProcessing) AS AVG_ProcessTime,

    MIN(ExecutionLog.TimeProcessing) AS MIN_ProcessTime, MAX(ExecutionLog.TimeProcessing) AS MAX_ProcessTime,

    STDEV(ExecutionLog.TimeProcessing) AS SD_ProcessTime, AVG(ExecutionLog.TimeRendering) AS AVG_RenderTime,

    MIN(ExecutionLog.TimeRendering) AS MIN_RenderTime, MAX(ExecutionLog.TimeRendering) AS MAX_RenderTime,

    STDEV(ExecutionLog.TimeRendering) AS SD_RenderTime, AVG(ExecutionLog.ByteCount) AS AVG_ReportrSize, AVG(ExecutionLog.[RowCount])

    AS AVG_RowCount, MIN(ExecutionLog.[RowCount]) AS MIN_RowCount, MAX(ExecutionLog.[RowCount]) AS MAX_RowCount,

    COUNT(ExecutionLog.ReportID) AS [Total Executions]

    FROM ExecutionLog INNER JOIN

    Catalog ON ExecutionLog.ReportID = Catalog.ItemID

    WHERE Catalog.Type=2 -- Report only

    GROUP BY Catalog.Name
