Looking for a great Windows OS Patching template (preferably in Excel).

We just starting with patching in our environment. We are using WSUS, but I am not happy with the reporting that WSUS provide. I want to create a master sheet in excel that will show details of what we have patched, and was wondering if there are any good template out there where I can download. A template that will break items down in columns, etc. Can someone point me in the right direction? I've seen a few online, but they are not that detailed.

Well, would this be what you are looking for ?

1) After you download the file, enable macros
2) the way it is setup is that you have your headings in Row1 and any field that contain the word "date" in row1 will make the calendar popup when the cursor is in that column.
3) Upon choosing a date it will reflect in the cell selected.
4) This is possible due to making sure that the Library Microsoft Calendar Control xx Library is on your system. I have 2007 but if you have 2010, 2013 etc.. it should also be ok.

Run it and let me know your comments or problems if any, we can cater to it.

Can you post a sample of the data you have to understand better what you want ?

Just an excel template that I can download and modify myself. Anything you can recommend. Something with Drop down selection and stuff. What I do need is a calendar pop up to where I click and a calendar pops-up to allow me to select a date. Maybe you can create something and hand off to me? 500 points in it for you. Thanks.

Verry inappropriate comment, we are not in a bazar here.

You specify clearly what you want and Experts propose solutions for you and when you are satisfied you close the question that could be beneficial for lots of people having the same issue as these are posted on the www

So please post a workbook specifying the fields you want and what you are after and will be glad to develop this.

I just need a template that has a simple function: the calendar pop-up. If you can create just a column for that, I think i can fill in the rest. I just don't know how to create that.

Something like the example here would be ideal:

The template you sent me does not work. I've attached a template so that you can modify and sent back to me. I want the date to populate for the following column: Scan Date, PatchDate. For the following column: Installed Patch Count, Missing Patch Count, Missing service Pack, I want it modified to have a drop down to select from 0-100. Thank you.
