I ran a trace file on a user's Client Access session to troubleshoot connectivity. l opened the file in Notepad and Wordpad and it's trash. What editor can I use to view this file? Thanks, Sam

    if the log file is a text format file, try the edditor Pitpad. It's a real nice text editor and as far as I know it's free to download.

    Thanks, got the file open after all. I opened the .tlg trace file and I may have been trying to open the .trc file instead. I "saved" the file, then "formatted" it after the trace, I think I saved it under a different name each time. Should I have kept the same name for both operations?
