wsus reporting

I need to present the computer status tabular reports in form of pie charts and then have the report sent automatically.  Please help me with how I can go about it. I am quite new to this so would appreciate answers in the most basic form if possible.
Thank you.

"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.

Extending Reports
You can customize WSUS reports in different ways:

Use the WSUS APIs to create a custom report
Use WSUS public views to create and extend custom reports
Use WSUS APIs to Create Custom Reports
For more information on WSUS APIs, see the Windows Server Update Services SDK documentation on MSDN ( You can use these APIs to create reports on updates, approvals, installation information, and the like.

Use WSUS Public Views to Create Custom Reports
For more information on public views, as well as sample queries, see the WSUS SDK conceptual documentation on MSDN ( If you are using SQL Server as the WSUS database, you can use the SQL Server Report Builder to generate custom reports using these views, or you can access the views from the command line. If you are using Windows Internal Database as the WSUS database, you can access it via the command line if you download the Microsoft SQL Server Command Line Query Utility and the SQL Native Client. You can download the install packages from the Microsoft Download Center (
