Printer Documentation

Hey!

I am trying to make a excel sheet so we can document all the printers in our enviroment.
There are alot of settings and with different drivers it is also alot of different views to check out the settings.

I am wondering if it is possible to drag out all this information to a csv file or xls or anything readable and with a possiblity to filter the docuemnt.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Depending on what you want to do with the data and what OS your print server is running, you may want to look into Print Migrator http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=9b9f2925-cbc9-44da-b2c9-ffdbc46b0b17

This "grabs" all the printer data to some data files and can be used to squirt it into a different server.  You can however look at the data files yourself.

Another option might be to use prncnfg.vbs, which can be found on an XP machine, or you can script something yourself.  The Win32_PrinterConfiguration Class might come in handy for this.  As it gathers info, you could write it to a file.  Also, the Win32_Printer Class provides additional info.
