Exporting History Data


I would like to export history data from an existing project, and tabulate the history data in excel. For example, I would like to see how finish dates have changed over time, for hundreds of rows, over the course of a project that has already finished. Is there a functionality to export a cell's (or selection of cells, or an entire sheet's) history? 


Currently the only two options I can see are either right clicking on each cell individually, select "view history", then manually record this history data by hand. This would be extremely prohibitive as the pop-up window can't even be highlighted and copied to the clipboard. The other option is to intermittently save a copy of a schedule as the project progresses, then infer differences. Neither of these options will work for my purposes as I would like information for hundreds of cells, and the projects I'm interested in investigating have already completed.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
