I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Instead of saving the query results as an MOF why not cut and paste the contents of the output into Excel/Notepad?  That gives you editable text and the ability to export into multiple formats including .pdf.  As David points out if you just save the MOF there's not huge amount you can do with it to get at it usefully.

it has 80000 contents , so while cut and paste , it hangs

 export to mof ...ok ....but how to read
Have you tried opening the MOF file with the MSINFO32 utility?  It can save/export data in text format, which you can use to create a PDF by way of a virtual (PDF) printer device, such as the one that is created with Adobe or a third party PDF utility like Bullzip.
