You can handle the "T" and "S" within awk.
awk '
(/Privilege Use/) {P=0}
(P) {print $0, (/No Auditing/) ? ";T" : ";S"}
(/Object Access/) {P=1}
' AdvancedAudit.txt

Where do the come from?
A file? A rule? (Which rule?)
I have made the awk statement multi-line, put the conditions in brackets, and moved the (P) condition so it does not act on the Object Access line.

Hi MadeInGermany,

Thanks, I have tried this out ,

awk '
/Privilege Use/ {P=0}
(P) {print $0, (/No Auditing/) ? ";T" : ";S"}
/Object Access/ {P=1}
' AdvancedAudit.txt

And it returns me this.

  File System                             No Auditing ;T
  Registry                                No Auditing ;T
  Kernel Object                           No Auditing ;T
  SAM                                     No Auditing ;T
  Certification Services                  No Auditing ;T
  Application Generated                   No Auditing ;T
  Handle Manipulation                     No Auditing ;T
  File Share                              No Auditing ;T
  Filtering Platform Packet Drop          No Auditing ;T
  Filtering Platform Connection           No Auditing ;T
  Other Object Access Events              No Auditing ;T
  Detailed File Share                     No Auditing ;T
  Removable Storage                       No Auditing ;T
  Central Policy Staging                  No Auditing ;T

The below mentioned is just an index which I used to label my report.

I find this useful

 ? ";T" : ";S"

Compared to doing this:
 grep -iq "No Auditing" && echo ';T' || echo ';F'`
