Use Excel 2007 to Read and Parse SharePoint 2007 Logs
Ever get tired of trying to read and make sense of the MOSS 2007 Logs? Or any text-based logs for that matter? Use Excel 2007 to open and import the logs. You can then filter and browse the logs in a searchable Excel format. In fact You can refresh the Logs by hitting the refresh button on the Data Toolbar. See Below! I am filtering on the w3wp.exe process. You can even filter it down so that you only see Exceptions by specifying a search filter criteria on the Message Column.
