ALL,

I need to connect to my shoretel database to extract data that is not in the canned reports namely the call notes field.  I'm a complete novice at SQL and need instructions on connecting to the SQL database through Excel so I can dump and sort the data.

Shoretel version 12.2
Communicator version 17+
Excel 2010

Thank you

You will probably need a mySql connector for excel + addin, have a look at these two articles, first to setup the connector and connect to the database, second how to query. You will also need to know the database credentials & db servername

1)  http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/excel-help/connect-to-a-mysql-database-HA104019820.aspx

Hello everyone,

Thank you for the quick response.  I was able to connect to the database with your help and wanted to add some additional info that will help other people with this issue.

SERVER=<The ShoreTel Director server IP address>
 DATABASE=shorewarecdr
 USER=st_cdrreport
 PASSWORD=passwordcdrreport
 PORT=4309  (Omit this to use default port if your ShoreTel version is prior to 10.2)
 (If using the archive DB, substitute server and database of the archive) - See more at: http://blog.shoretel.com/2012/12/shoretel-professional-services-custom-reports/#sthash.wZs1X8LW.dpuf

Now that I'm connected in the MySQL browser how would I make a report or query ? I see the field I need information from  SELECT c.`CallNote` FROM shorewarecdr.`call` c;  Do I need to pick different fields like start and end times?  Do I need to use Keys to link tables as in Crystal Reports?

Thank you
