Custom report: Machine Name Not Match Serial Number

What criteria would I use for a custom report that would show computers
with Machine Names not matching Serial Numbers?

Don't really see an easy way to do that. You don't get an option to say
machine name not= to serial number or visa versa. The only thing I can
see to do is create a basic workstation report and display machine name
and serial number and do a side by side comparison.

You could export Dan's suggested report to Excel then write a simple macro
to delete all lines where Column A = Column B. Then only the records with
differences would be left.

Just a thought...

woofaJB@zamlists.com,

I was saying, "Why didn't I think of that". I was trying to make a
compliment, but it didn't care my tone.. Sorry.

No offence taken, Jared - I just didn't understand what you meant.

Cheers,
