Hi I'm looking for a scripted way to export a daterange of eventviewer data into prefereable a .csv format. What i'm looking to do is export the System section into a CSV monthly or even weekly. If there was a way to filter it as well by source that would be great.

Don't know if you've given this a whirl already, but have you had a look at logparser: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=890cd06b-abf8-4c25-91b2-f8d975cf8c07&displaylang=en?
it can drag stuff out of text based log files or windows event logs using queries pretty much like SQL.. I think this version (2.2) also has time based selections too so it might meet your requirements.

Awesome that did exactly what I wanted. Just used a WHEN DateGenerated > datetime to get the daterange.
