WSUS Reports

The reports that WSUS 3.0 show me for computers needing updates also include updates that are needed for the workstations but are not yet approved.  We sync every night, but unless it is an out of cycle update we only approve updates the second Tuesday of every month.

Is there a way to get a report that does not include the not approved updates that are needed and only show the computers that need approved updates?  

I can not find a report that will do that.  The only thought I have come up with so far is to only sync with MIcrosoft on the second Tuesday of every month.


Thanks

I'm guessing when clicking on the hyperlink to show the criteria before running the report there isn't anything in there?

Let me begin with WSUS sux! From a repoting standpoint it is worse.  I have found that if you want good reports get a copy of Crystal Reports and interface directly with the SQL instance that is hosting WSUS so you can get the rports you need.

Yes WSUS does suck from a reporting standpoint.
