Re: Nessus to Excel

Matthew,

You can  save Nessus report in NBE format, which is "|" ( pipe) delimited.
Then you could either programmatically ( Perl, sed, etc. ) massage it into a CSV
format , and import into the Excel.

Another way of doing that is to create a script which will read a line
of the report ( NBE formatted )
and write it into the spreadsheet via Spreadsheet::WriteExecl  Perl
module http://search.cpan.org/~jmcnamara/Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-2.16/lib/Spreadsheet/WriteExcel.pm

Yet another way is to import th  report right from the Excel by
specifying "|" as a delimiter to your
workbook data source.

Regards,
-dimitry.

I'm not a database guy and not good with XML.  Does anyone know a good way to transfer Nessus documents to Excel 
output?  I need it to compare the output from an outside company's scan (which is in Excel) in a quick fashion.  I do 
have a linux box and a windows box at my disposal.  Any ideas?
