Opening a Log File

Log Viewer

Opening a Log File

From the Action menu, click Open Log File. The typical Microsoft® open dialog box appears. Use this dialog box to locate and open a log file of saved messages.

After you select the desired log file and click Open, the saved log messages appear in the message window.

Note Opening a log file does not affect the message logging process in the background, and you can view those messages by clicking Local or another node in the console tree.

When you are viewing an opened log file, you can do filtering, searching, printing, and exporting functions on the messages. For example, you can filter the contents of the log file and then export just that subset of messages to another log file. After you apply a filter to the contents of a log file, you must click Refresh on the Action menu to see the results.
