Track for Reporting Login and Logoff Times by User Account

I wish to create some sort of logging of when user's log in and log off.  Currently, our PDC is a server 2008 r2 machine, and I am capturing login and logoff times through the event viewer.  However, I do not know how to export the event viewer audits to a format in which I can do reporting.

How does everyone else out there track this information?  The only pieces of data I need are the username, login time, and logoff time, and the date of login / logoff.

I would like this to be an automated process in which the data is automatically dumped into a file of any sort, so I can import it into a database for reporting.

I also have been playing around with PA Power Admin, as we have the software currently, to see if I can log the events that way.

If at all possible, i would like to not have to purchase any third party software; however, if there are no other optins, then I will entertain that idea.

Getting closer...I think this should work...thanks!

I'll post a new topic to question how to work with this, as I have some syntax questions and specific Event ID questions.  I'll leave this open for a couple days in case anyone has any other options.
