Group Policy Export to Excel

Is there a way that I can export my group policy settings into Excel.  I have all my workstations in one OU wiht all the proper GPO's applied and have another OU for my servers with all the proper GPO's applied.  I would like to export the settings from each into Excel that I can give to an auditor as my baseline.  I also tried just running RSOP from a server and workstation put could figure out how to get them into Excel.  Any ideas?

No way that I know of to do it natively,

You could try (I may test later)

Export the gpresult to an xml file   gpresult /x   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc733160(v=ws.10).aspx

Then open that xml in excel   http://www.addictivetips.com/microsoft-office/excel-2010-working-with-xml-format/

Not sure how that will look/convert in excel.


There is one tool from Microsoft
Security Compliance Manager can export GPO's to Excel (and also compare 2 GPO's)


...and there are some basic scripts out there to create an Excel file based on xml (GPMC save GPO as xml)
