To run a report that covers more than one year you would pull up Roster report in the reports list. Put in the dates you want to cover (ex: 01/01/08 through 5/1/09) and filter out any other parameters that you need. (type, status, subtype etc). If you want your report in date order, press the date heading on the report screen. Then press filter at the bottom of the screen and download your file to the Relospec file. Keep it the same name (Roster).
Once your file is downloaded you can run any of the reports in the list.
