I need to write a program to extract data from a Windows 2000 Application Event Log

This event log needs to be analyzed, but it is apparently corrupt - i can't seem to open it it any event viewer... it seems to be corrupt.

Is there a good site documenting the file format for an application event log?

Thanks
