Microsoft's implementation of SMS using the MMC is a bit inflexible when printing and exporting data is concerned. Fortunately Status Messages can be printed and exported in a more flexible format. In this article I'll show you how to do it.

Go to the System Status tree, open Advertisement Status then open a specific advertisement in the left pane. In the right pane right-click on a site, open Show Messages and All. When the window comes up go to the file menu. Here you can select "Print" or "Save As". My experience hasn't been good with the printing option. I've gotten blue screens here repeatedly. 

"Save As" allows you to save as a .csv which can be opened in Excel, providing you with more options, printing is obviously one of them. When you attempt to save the .csv an options box pops up allowing you to print a selection or the whole page. It also give you other options including Exported Details. If you select the View menu this same option box pops up allowing you to change viewing details in the Status Message Window.
