I ended up using a product called event viewer explorer to filter on the description.
This answer is not helpful - The original question was how to include event descriptions in the output file.  Eventvwr.msc on Server2003 does not export event descriptions.  It only exports Type, Dte, time, Source, Category, Event, User and Computer.

I too would like to export the eventlog with the descriptions included.  Any ideas?
