How do you open and view saved event logs

I understand how to save a log, but can't figure out how to view it after it's saved.. Probably a simple answer.

Thanks

If you saved it as .evt file, just start the event viewer MMC, right-click "Event Viewer" in the left pane, and choose "Open Log File"; browse to the log file, specify which type of log it was, and open it.
If you saved it as .csv or .txt, open it in Excel or Notepad.
