Tracking Superseded Windows Patches

Here's another short blurb, and I'm mostly posting it here for my own reference.  Part of my job requires analyzing the monthly vulnerability scan and remediating any findings.  On occasion, a patch is reported missing from systems, and it turns out that the patch has been superseded, it is no longer reported by the system as installed.  And occasionally you'll see one wrongly reported that has been superseded, and the superseding patch has also been superseded, making it difficult to track back whether or not the system is actually vulnerable.

I've searched and searched for this fabled spreadsheet provided by Microsoft that tracks which patches supersede which patches, but have come up short every time.  But yesterday, I was given this link, BulletinSearch.xlsx.  Enjoy!
