We need a print out of all user and group permissions from our Microsoft SharePoint 2007 site. We also need to have the permissions as assigned to lists, docs, libraries, etc. included in a comprehensable readable format. One that can be furnished to upper management.

shahzadbux,
                       We took a look at the utility. At first glance, we were very excited. Sounded like something we could use. However, after reading further we bumped into the show stopper. We do not have access to the sharepoint servers and it's not likely that we could ever make a case for ourselves to use it.
                       We down loaded a copy anyway. Thanks for your suggestion. Have you got any more?

shahzadbux,
                     Nope. We can get that info and more by pulling SharePoint data from the site UserInfo table into a Microsoft Access database. We can do this for the data in lists and libraries as well.
                     Thanks again for your help though. We appreciate it.

have you looked at the SharePoint Administration Toolkit?

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/A_1975-SharePoint-permissions-reporting-tool.html

i cant install it on the SP server i have access to to have a look at the permission reporting tool in it but if you haven't already checked it out it might be worth looking at it to see if it'll help.

shahzadbux,

                      On reading the article, it sounds very promising but, as I mentioned in an earlier post, we don't have access to the SP servers. However, we are going to pass the link you provided to the SP farm SAs and ask that they take a look at possibly implementing it for the benefit of all administrators.
                      Thanks again for your help. We'll let you know what their reply is as soon as they respond.

shahzadbux,

                      We just got a reply from the MOSS developer/SA. Basically they informed us "That took kit is installed on our server farm.  Unfortunately it does not give you what you are looking for in a report."
                      Thanks again for trying. We appreciate it.
