Re: Generating reports from History field by defining views such as Table/Chart view.
You cannot use History field of OVSD in any of Rules/Audit/Views/Filters/Find/etc. OVSD has a limitation for all such fields (64K fields).
However, you can get your required information through Analyzed data (Administrator Console --> Analyzed Data). If you don't see any reports under Analyzed data, check whether they are enabled for generation, through Administrator Console --> System Panel --> Report Settings. If not enabled, enable them and re-generate/refresh the anayzed data.
