      Thanks Reed,

      Very helpful.  I notice that you are using "OnBehalfOf" in your template, and I can't find any documentation on which sets of un/pw/master account id's/api key work.

      I think I must be very confused.

      Say I have two accounts:

      acct1 username=un1 password=pw1 masterAccountId=ma1 - this is the account that has the API token (token1)
      acct2 username=un2 password=pw2 masterAccountId=ma2- this account is a sub-account of acct1

      Now, I want to retrieve a report for acct2.

      If I set un=un1, pw=pw1, maId=ma1, oboUn=un2, oboPw=pw2, token1 -  I get the report back for the first account, not the second that I wanted.
      If I set un=un1, pw=pw1, maId=ma2, oboUn=un2, oboPw=pw2 token1 -  I get 'can't log in for un1'
      If I set un=un2, pw=pw2, maId=ma2, oboUn=un1, oboPw=pw1, token 1 - I get "Account cannot be accessed at this location." so clearly I've got the location wrong.

      So I call location service with un=un2, pw=pw2, maId=ma2, oboUn=un1, oboPw=pw1, token 1 and I get 'token1' is not a valid license key.

      There's something I'm clearly not understanding about this api and am looking for help anywhere I can get it.  It all worked fine in V5.

      I agree that a collection of just XML SOAP request/EWS response document for each of the methods would be great. I don't use any of the client libraries because they all see to compile in the username/password info, and I work with way too many clients for that to work out. So I create my SOAP documents via server side programming using SOAP templates for each method that I use.

      Here is the V6 report request template that I just made this week as part of my V6 upgrade process. Hope it helps you. Just fill in the access information and the start/end dates. Hopefully the formatting stays intact!
