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.

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.)
- Select where you want to save it
That's it. Hope that works for you.
