As you might have seen from other posts in this forum the Audit table
column names have changed over time so if you database is of later
vintage than mine you should probably use this commadn instead:

 SELECT Command, StartTime, Username, Hostname, VirtRepos
 FROM SessionLog
 (Command='update' OR Command='checkout')
 AND (StartTime > '2006-01-05')
 AND (StartTime < '2006-02-01')

Notice also that if you do not use the two last lines the returned
dataset will not be time limited.
Another notice:
It might be a problem with using dates since the format sometimes is
localized and then you need to use the one appropriate for your
I'd start without the two last lines to push that issue ahead a bit.
