Automated WSUS reporting

Is there a way of automating WSUS 3.0 reports?  I am speaking of the PDF reports you can generate by going to target group, selecting computers, right-click select "Status Report".

From here I have to manually choose the classification, product, and status each time.

I would like to be able to tell a script of some sort what target group to generate a detailed, "classification = security and critical updates", "Product = Windows", "Status = Needed,Failed".

Currently I have to do this manually for the 5 billion target groups my company has for each of it's clients.

Looks interesting, but I really need a solution that exports the same pdf and Microsoft's "Status Report" .. formatting, graphics etc.

It's just frustrating that Microsoft doesnt seem to let you save your report format, instead I have to configure the report for each one I want to run.

Sorry, but unfortunately that's the best you're gonna get at this point.
