Search the Android Market for Call Log Calendar

There are some screenshots of it at http://android.joao.jp/p/call-log-calendar.html

It can copy your SMS messages (and, as its name suggests, call log) from your Android phone to a Google Calendar.  I'd suggest logging into your Google account and creating a new calendar especially for the text messages, but you can copy them to your main calendar if you prefer.

Depending on how you sync your phone and PC, you can then copy from your calendar to your PC - use gSyncIt if you don't have any other sync tool - it works great, especially with multiple calendars.  (www.daveswebsite.com/software/gsync/)

Have you installed Call Log Calendar?

You need to install it first, tell it which calendar to use, and then tell it to copy your call log and/or messages.

It can copy call logs on an ongoing basis automatically, but only copies SMS on demand: a planned feature for a future version is to copy messages on an ongoing automatic basis.

I have been referring to Call Log Calendar throughout.  Call Log Calendar Free is a different app and does not have the SMS functionality you seek.
