RM8 audit log - saving off a .talf file

Does anyone know if there is an easy way to save off (in a spreadsheet for instance) the contents of the audit log (*.talf) files? Or copy them, or open in something that allows the information to be copied?

You can't copy and paste from the .talf file itself and most standard software doesn't recognise it.

Re: RM8 audit log - saving off a .talf file

Hi Bridget,

I like to use cmtrace.exe for looking at audit logs, etc. which would allow you to do that, however, in answer to your question specifically; the talf is actually just a tab delimited text file. This means that it can be imported into excel just like any tab delimited file.

- Open Excel
- Select the Data Ribbon > From Text
- Navigate to your talf
- Delimited > Next
- Tab Delimited > Next
- Highlight all columns in data preview and change the format to Text (keeps the format of dates, etc.)
- Finish
- Select where you want to save it

That's it. Hope that works for you.
