My boss gave me a spreadsheet that he says he found from MSFT somewhere. The problem is the spreadsheet is for 2003 GPOs and I need to find one for 2008. The spreadsheet lists all of the available Group Policy Editors Nodes, as well as the policy setting. I've searched and am unable to find a link for this spreadsheet (either 2003 or 2008). Does anyone know where I can find it?
Note: It's not the spreadsheet located here.

While it's not a spreadsheet, the Security Compliance Manager might be what I'm looking for. I'll have to play around with it to be sure. Thanks. – Holocryptic Jun 28 '10 at 21:27
look in the directories that were extracted, it use to be in there. Does the newest executable create gpo's that you can then link to? I have the most currentl verision of the xls gpo settings but its at home. I'll post a link tonight. – tony roth Jun 28 '10 at 21:57

I don't believe Microsoft is maintaining the excel spreadsheet any more. A support tech at Microsoft has created a new tool for searching through various policies and researching them. The new policy reference tool is available here

The blog entry announcing this new service is here.

Blast. I hope that's not the case. Ideally I need something that I can customize. Thanks for the pointer though. It's still helpful. – Holocryptic Jun 28 '10 at 18:35
