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...

You should get something like this:
