Custom poller report

Hi there,

I've got a custom polled instance that gets the last date of a battery change of a device and returns it.  That all works.  What I want to do is get a report or a single view of all these devices to show all the dates together.  If I run the ISPi report, the only options I have for report data type are guage, percent or counter.  It returns the date in an octetstring, so doesn't make sense of it and consequently the report doesnt run.  If i look in the Monitoring tab under custom polled instances, I can view all the initial values, but if the battery change date changes and the device state doesn't (which is quite normal) then all I see is the original value.

Does anyone have any ideas of what I could do?


Thanks, Al.

String values are not supported in the Cognos/Cubes   reporting engine.
