How do I find the items that ended successfully and also the ones that ended but did not sell?
How do I find the items that ended successfully and also the ones that were notsuccessful in selling?

Using GetSellerTransactions you can get all the transactions for the itemsthat sold successfully.  Since an item can have multiple transactions, asin the case of a Dutch Auction, you need to group them together to get all thetransactions for an Item.  To get a list of the items that ended but werenot sold, use GetSellerList and look for items with QuantitySold zero.

Here is an example using SDK 3.0.  It contains pieces of  the code behind a windows formGetEndedItems with two ListView Controls.  lvSold displays the items thatended and sold successfully.  lvItemsNotSold displays the items that endedand did not sell.  The UI also contains two DateTimePicker controls to letthe user select the dates range for which they want all the transactions anditems that ended.
