WSUS History

I have an audit request for "System generated listing or a screenshot of Windows patches implemented from 1/1/2012 - 12/31/2012".  Is there a way to pull WSUS updates approved in that time frame?

We're using WSUS 3.2.7600.226 on a Windows 2008 R2 server.

I found a feature where I can create my own view of updates, but the only options for a time frame seem to be Last Week, Last Month, Last 2 Months.  

I assume this is a pretty standard audit request, how do other people handle this one?

Thanks in advance!

You could try the SQL query here

Or try


   Open a command prompt
   Type wmic qfe list full /format:htable > hotfixes.htm
   Then type hotfixes.htm

SQL Query did it, with some slight modification.
