Hi Everyone,

I am dealing a very nerve-racking problem in event log. My company have a warehouse management program that is installed on one of our server. The server has no roles just a terminal server and it is just in workgroup.

The warehouse management program has a lot of scripts that was applied after install and I guess those scripts generating lots of irrelevant error message in the event log more than one hundred a day. These error can be safely ignored.

I there a way to filter the event log to make ONLY these errors dissappear?

thanks

   3. On the View menu, click Filter.
   4. Click the Filter tab (if it is not already selected).
