Hi guys,

I need help to make some script in vbscript or powershell. To read data from xml named "Solutions.xml" and list the following fields in excel file:

SolutionName:           LastOperationResult      LastOperationTime


And order by LastOperationTime

<Solutions Count="222">
   <Solution Name="3.5.config.wsp">
      <Id>9d2ae790-08c9-4088-ac32-dc8814531065</Id>
      <File>3.5.Config.wsp</File>
      <Deployed>TRUE</Deployed>
      <WebApplicationSpecific>FALSE</WebApplicationSpecific>
      <ContainsGlobalAssembly>TRUE</ContainsGlobalAssembly>
      <ContainsCodeAccessSecurityPolicy>FALSE</ContainsCodeAccessSecurityPolicy>
      <LastOperationResult>DeploymentSucceeded</LastOperationResult>
      <LastOperationTime>9/19/2011 1:15 PM</LastOperationTime>
   </Solution>
   <Solution Name="dp.sharepoint.workflow.wsp">
      <Id>7a78b738-6d4f-11dc-833e-02d356d89593</Id>
      <File>DP.Sharepoint.Workflow.wsp</File>
      <Deployed>TRUE</Deployed>
      <WebApplicationSpecific>TRUE</WebApplicationSpecific>
      <ContainsGlobalAssembly>TRUE</ContainsGlobalAssembly>
      <ContainsCodeAccessSecurityPolicy>FALSE</ContainsCodeAccessSecurityPolicy>
      <Deployment WebApplication="http://test.com/" />
      <LastOperationResult>DeploymentSucceeded</LastOperationResult>
      <LastOperationTime>9/19/2011 1:16 PM</LastOperationTime>
   </Solution>
   <Solution Name="exportwsp.wsp">
      <Id>de7a5850-03b9-44a6-a59c-31bceb1d9605</Id>
      <File>exportwsp.wsp</File>

If you get a error on line 3, change your regional settings to en-US, or run the code below:
function Use-Culture {  
    param([System.Globalization.CultureInfo][Parameter(Mandatory=$true)]$culture,  
            [ScriptBlock][Parameter(Mandatory=$true)]$code)  
    trap {[System.Threading.Thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = $currentCulture}  
    $currentCulture = [System.Threading.Thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentCulture  
    [System.Threading.Thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = $culture  
    Invoke-Command $code  
    [System.Threading.Thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = $currentCulture  
}
Use-Culture en-US {

$objexcel = New-Object -com Excel.Application
$objexcel.Visible = $TRUE
$objexcel.DisplayAlerts = $FALSE
$workbook = $objexcel.workbooks.Add()
for ($i=$workbook.Sheets.count; $i -gt 1; $i--) {$workbook.Sheets.Item($i).delete()}

$intRow = 2
$workbook.Sheets.Item(1).Cells.Item(1, 1) = "Name"
$workbook.Sheets.Item(1).Cells.Item(1, 2) = "LastOperationResult"
$workbook.Sheets.Item(1).Cells.Item(1, 3) = "LastOperationTime"

$log = [XML]("<ROOT>"+(Get-Content .\solution.xml)+"</ROOT>")
$log.ROOT.Solutions.solution | % {"$($_.Name),$($_.LastOperationResult),$($_.LastOperationTime)"}

foreach ($solution in $log.ROOT.Solutions.solution)
	{
		$workbook.Sheets.Item(1).Cells.Item($intRow,1) = $solution.Name
		$workbook.Sheets.Item(1).Cells.Item($intRow,2) = $solution.LastOperationResult
		$workbook.Sheets.Item(1).Cells.Item($intRow,3) = $solution.LastOperationTime
		$intRow = $intRow +1
	}
$workbook.Sheets.Item(1).Cells.range("A1:C1").Font.Bold = $TRUE
$workbook.Sheets.Item(1).Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFit()

}
