I would like to see the same. I attempted to create just an inventory query that would show it and had it worked the report would have been easy. Problem is that the first computer I checked, mine, that has duel monitors lists monitor 0, 1, and 2, under Computer\Video\Monitor. Each one of those listings have a different serial number for the monitor attached. So the information is showing I have three when I only have 2 making it unreliable.
One would guess, if no one from LANDesk chimed in; there's no good answer.
As of 9.5SP1 (I think) there should be a new section under Video called 'Connected Monitors'. The idea is to show only what is actually connected at the time of the scan. Perhaps that might help you a bit more.

You have always been an extremely helpful indivual in this community, so let me start by saying thank you and happy new year. Yes, your comment is correct, but it still does not give accurate information about how many monitors are being used in a dual monitor setup. At the moment I do not remember the actual reason, but I did go down that road and still was not able to reliability get the answer for which computers have dual monitor setups.
I think it’s because depending on when the scan might have been done it could misrepresent how many monitors are actually connected. When you scan again, it might not be taken the additional monitors off. I’m not sure if that was the case and it’s just not important enough at this time to spend more time on it. I think that’s why reporting was of interest, if I could easily grab SN and compare one to another and count it uniquely it might help decipher the real count. We do not have 3 or 4 monitors connected to as many systems as it is reporting.
The documents are listed as 9.0 sp2, but will still apply to 9.5.
There isn't one for 9.5 currently, but this is from 9.0. There were a few minor additions, but this might get you in the right direction.
