Just remove the g[nome] from the command name.

If you want a lot more information than is there, one method is:

$ for j in /sys/class/block/* ; do udevadm info "$j" ; done | less

but it will need parsing before you can can dump any of it in a
spreadsheet. (And note that the output is not in sequence because
of globbing.)
