viewpoint report to excel?

I am doing some clash detection for a project...


I would like to create a "clash report", that I can track all of our clashes and be able to hand out at meetings.


I want the excel speadsheet to just list the same names as my "saved viewpoints" and the following columns in excel be able to be editable - things like Priority levels, open or closed, etc. - I know these settings are also in Navisworks when running the clashes...



Is there ANY way to export to excel that would be helpful to me? I would rather not have to manually type the HUNDREDS of clashes that there are. Even if I have to fill out the columns myself, getting this exported in some way to excel would be a great starting point.


I know you can export to a xml file, but I do not want to do the clash reporting like that.


The "quickest" work-around I can think of is exporting to xml, open with internet explorer and then manually copy and paste each clash... hardly fast, and way to tedious for me...
