Many years ago I made FrontPage sites (later quickly converted to Dreamweaver when FP suddenly died) on various topics. I was a WebmasterWorld paid member and spent hundreds of hours reading these fourms, I went to Pubcon several times, etc. Most of my sites pertained to my hobbies and interests. My ad revenue became sufficient to build a nice house. In the process of building I discovered a niche for a needed biz. For the next 10+ years I focused totally on my new biz. Meanwhile, time marched on ,new biz grew to about 10 employees, I hired a full time web guy for new biz and I stopped learning all things web and became "Boss Lady".
Now I have sold the new biz and need to go in and re-build/clean up/ try to salvage the old workhorse sites that once earned a nice income. I know they will never perform as they did before but a few bucks a month is nice 'mailbox money".
My problem: the old Adsense interface that I once watched hourly is gone, and I can't even figure out how to see what domains or url's are generating the bit of income I still get from them. I realize that I have a lot of learning to do, but for a CPA meeting tomorrow I need to be able to discuss with him which sites are earning and how much and see what all spending I do on hobby supplies, and similar, can remain a biz deduction in eyes of the IRS for 2018, ...and I simply have no idea as the new Adsense interface says 'no information' on pretty much any report I try to look at...all I can see is overall earnings...and BTW the topics of the old websites vary widely.
All advice appreciated.

I personally use the "site" report. You cannot go as far as 10 years back, but you could probably use it for the past 3 years. It'll give you an easy sense of what domains are still earning.

It shows "no report" because certain data types are made available only after a certain year. So if you go as far as "All Time" many of these reports will say no data, because they deal with nonexistent data types.

When you enter adesense.com, there is no a big "Websites" square with a "View report" link in the bottom left corner?

FrontPage. Me too. A lot of people used to talk poorly about FrontPage but I also had success and I learned a lot with it.

I also left AdSense for a few years and came back. I left because of a serious health incident.

I don't know if I have anything of use on a rush basis. I also found things had changed drastically when I returned. I have learned what I know about it now just by spending a lot of time reading what's on AdSense. (I still have lots of "new" to learn)

Hope you can find what you need. It has changed but worth the effort IMO.
