Q: Purge A3 Queue for Reporting?

This issue has been solved. See solution.
I've been charged with maintaining an existing EV environment - EV 5SP6. We commenced archiving 4 Exchange servers (for the first time) at the beginning of the year and it is still getting through the initial phase of archiving all mail pre-2006.
I have been using "Run Now" for the archive services each time after the queues finish processing (because of 3000 max limit and to monitor better). In fact today I have just inititated another "run". However management now wants to know how much pre-2006 mail we have left to archive....!
I understand that I can run the archive services in report mode (A3 queue) to get the necessary info. However there are already messages in A3 (because of "Run Now" archiving) for processing.
Can I still run the reports and get it in a timely fashion or can I manually purge the A3 queue and then run the reports? What's the best way to get a report on how much mail still needs to be archived?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Tia!
