[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Reporting on Containers and their profiles

I need to print a report with several components but cannot figure out how to do so. I have looked through reports, attempted a custom report, Manage top containers and container profiles.
The custom report I created is the closest I came to what I need, however, still not quite right. It provides a full listing of resources and its instances, including digital, it is not limited to unique top containers. If a resource's container instance records include child containers, the listing repeats the top container. I need a listing that only lists each unique Top Container regardless of child containers within a resource, with profile and total extent by resource and would like to filter it by location, specifically, building or area rather than at the shelf level. I do not need digital instances. So far, I can only get something like that if I go to each individual resource and export a CSV report from there. But with hundreds of resources, that would be laborious and inefficient. I hope this makes.

Has anyone tried this, figured out how to do this, have recommendations? Is the only option to work through the API? In which case, can you share how to do?

Many thanks
