Generate Classic Report with command line

I saw the new classic report type to generate a report, however it does not look like it can be used from the command line? Or can it? Is this just a case of the documentation being out of sync?

    Hi @Tim_Cartwright

    It should work on command line as well. The documentation is out of sync and the best I can get is using /ReportType:Classic. Despite the style looks right, the contents are all missing. I've logged this issue as SC-10194 in our internal bug tracking system and I'll keep you posted.
    Kind regards

    I ran into this yesterday. The report file I generated with the UI for SQL Compare 13.4.6.7079 Professional displays fine. However, when I tried the new Classic setting from the command line, the HTML report doesn't display correctly. Using BeyondCompare3, I quickly discovered that the file generated from the command line was missing a comma that was in the UI version. After I added the comma and save the file, it displays fine. Hopefully internal development is already fixing this (and is ahead of us users), but I will post a snip of the html file that I changed.
    Line from the UI generated file:
        var differencesql  = new Array(new Array(new Array(0, "Error, No SQL Available")));var createsql  = new Array(new Array(new Array(0, "Error, No SQL Available")));var dropsql  = new Array(new Array(new Array(0, "Error, No SQL Available")));var identsql  = new Array(new Array(new Array(0, "Error, No SQL Available")),new Array(new Array(0, "", "")));
    Line from the command line generated file:
        var differencesql  = new Array(new Array(new Array(0, "Error, No SQL Available")));var createsql  = new Array(new Array(new Array(0, "Error, No SQL Available")));var dropsql  = new Array(new Array(new Array(0, "Error, No SQL Available")));var identsql  = new Array(new Array(new Array(0, "Error, No SQL Available"))new Array(new Array(0, "", "")));

    Or, in a little less context (UI/works followed by command-line/broken):
    ")),new Array(
    "))new Array(
    Again, once I added the missing comma, my file seemed to be displaying correctly.

    You're right @DanW564, that's exactly what the problem is and the workaround is just to add the missing comma as you've explained.

    We've got a fix ready for this and it should go out in the next frequent update release.
