You may be able to accomplish this with an SQL report. Here is a link to the official Moodle documentation on Configurable reports, which provides detailed setup instructions.

An example of a report that is a little more useful,, such as Completion Report for Multiple courses using a date range, for all students. Can this tool accomplish this?

The short answer is "yes". The long answer is that it requires you to write (or find somewhere on the internet) the appropriate SQL statement to make that happen.
