It's not clear that you do. Your requirement looks to be more with listing
than "exporting" (whatever that means.)

Are you necessarily trying to list what is installed
or ultimately interested in what is not installed?
Since most of your updates will be security updates
I'd try using the MBSA command line client (mbsacli.exe)
E.g., I would hope that there might be exploitable diagnostics
in the MBSA tool to allow you to derive a list of installed updates.
After all, in order to find out what is not installed
it must to some extent check what *is* installed,
although it might do it more by module version
than by explicit update number.
Hmm... alternatively, looking at its list of possible reports,
Shavlik's HFNetChkPro might provide a simpler solution.
Patch Status Detail
This report provides detailed information about each patch discovered by the scan.
BTW neither requirement is really on topic for this newsgroup,
so you might get more informed help from either the WSUS
or MBSA NG.
