We want to import our NT/2000 application event logs into an sql database on a daily basis for analysis, is there a way that we can do this manually or are there any tools available to automate the process. Ideally we'd want to generate a new application log each day & store the previous days logs for importing either manually or automatically.

Hello,

Just a idea wher to start. Try using DUMPEL.exe from the 2k resource kit http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/tools/existing/dumpel-o.asp this will dump a event log to a txt file from there I would use DTS to import the data to SQL. There is a handy wizard to perform the task Go to stratmenu/progams/microsoft sql server/import export data
Need any help give me a shout see what I can do.
