Can you tell me what version of code did the number of topology changes including the last change time begin? I have a 3550 running the following code and it gives me the following output:

Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software

IOS (tm) C3500XL Software (C3500XL-C3H2S-M), Version 12.0(5.4)WC(1), MAINTENANCE INTERIM SOFTWARE

switch#sho span vlan 1 det


% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

The output i've posted is from a 3560 running "c3560-advipservicesk9-mz.122-25.SEE3.bin", i've tried this on one of my 3500XL and yes it seems that it doesn't support this command, you can try and do an IOS upgrade, but i can't assure you that it will support this command.
