Hi all, trust you are well.

Question: Does anyone know if there is a way in MS Access, without the use of 3rd party apps, a way to read in the Event logs of a pc (.evt files). I'm writing a small database to be able to query the security log files for specific information.

Thanks
Sean

  It's a bunch of API Calls.  Found some code here:

http://www.mvps.org/st-software/VB_Code_LJ.htm

  But your not allowed to distribute the source.  It's also VB6 (should convert easily though).  Either use as is and distribute as an MDE or read through and figure out what API calls are required (just open the class modules in notepad).

Wow ... that was a long shot for me ... and thanks for give JD some points.

If you could, post back what you actually do ... because this is one of those off the wall things - so to speak ... that might be good to know somethime.
