Restting counts within a report

I am using the built in SCCM report called: "Status of a specific advertisement."  This is the report that tells you how many clients Accepted an advertisement and succeeded, etc.  I have a few advertisements with failures.  For whatever reason the package was never successful so I ended up installing manually.  Now my report it loaded with failed attempts.  I am trying to clear these out.  Fairly soon I will be delegating the software deployment to other staff and would prefer that they not see these false positives.  I have reset the counts within the actual advertisement status and even went as far as deleting the failed records.  Nothing seems to clear the failures out of my reports.  Thanks in advance

Hi PDiBartolo!

I believe you may have to create a new advertisement.  When you create the new advertisement, under the Schedule tab, Program rerun behavior: select "Rerun if failed previous attempt".  This will keep the program from rerunning on systems previously successfully installed.

On the report itself, the systems previously successful should still identify as Succeeded, but under the Last Status Message Name column it will say:  Program will not rerun, whereas systems installed via this new advertisement will say: Program completed with success.  Either way the end result will identify all systems successful, whether it was from the previous advertisement or the new advertisement.

I was able to get the results I needed by just deleting the old advertisement and create a new one.  I am still looking for a way to remove certain results from an existing advertisement.  Here is the reason:
I deployed a piece of software.  A client returned an error.  Nothing I could do would get the install from running successfully within SCCM.  Therefore I go to the client and manually install the software.  I was never able to get the advertisement to run successfully, so there is always a failed result in the report.  it just makes it hard to troubleshoot as I have 5 technicians pushing out software.  If we get a false positive I wanted to be able to remove the failed message rather than deleting the entire advertisement.  But thanks for your help with this.
