We were tasked to create these more from a visual perspective during a migration and new AD rollout. Post deployment 
the Policy manager will be used as the ongoing centralized management tool. Most of this I would assume will not be 
used or have to be manually updated as the sheets are being used more as meeting material and presentation sets for 
upper management.

Did you guys think about the tedious manual update of the excel spreadsheet when new policies are add or existing ones 
replaced or modified ? Doesn't the Group Policy Manager tool for Windows 2003 (runs on XP as well) be good enough.

Kind Regards

Good afternoon,
I've been thinking of creating a spread sheet, which I can use to help plan my active directory policies. Before I go 
and spend alot of time creating an excel spreadsheet listing all available policies, and all possible settings, I was 
just currious if anyone has created something similar to this? If not, it looks like I'll be busy over the next few 
weeks, I'm only asking because I know this will take more then a few hours, and there really isn't any point in me 
reinventing the wheel. My eventual goal is to make some transparent sheets to display on my projector, that way I can 
explain, and make sure others in my department fully understand inheritance, and no overrides. Thank you, Nick
