windows software update server - how to export approved list.

Anyone knows how do I export a list of patches which is manually approved?  There is a "ApprovedUpdatesToXML" file after I installed the "API Services Update samples and Tools" but it does not generate CSV/Excel format.  

Any shared experiences are appreciated.

Many Thanks ; )
