Based on my experience with the author , I am posting a link to the site which has steps to do so

If you want to copy the file in windows and open up in notepad use this

http://www.compshack.com/linuxunix/ftp-file-windows-unix-server

If you are using a linux system then use this

Note: I am not saying anything different than What experts woolmilkproc and omarfarid had suggested, just pointing you to the detailed steps

Your best option is using FTP to transfer the log file in "text" format to Windows where you can do with it whatever you want.

AIX runs the FTP server process by default, and Windows comes with an FTP command line client.

Alternatively you can install a GUI client for FTP, like WinSCP, and use this one to transfer the log.

If you have SSH on AIX and PuTTY on Windows you can install and use pscp or psftp which are part of the PuTTY suite.

If you're using PuTTY and really want to go with copy-and-paste adjust the number of scrollback lines for your PuTTY window to a size big enough to hold the whole file in the scrollback buffer, then copy and paste.

Why not view the file in AIX? Use

more filename.log

Now you can page backward and forward as you like, and you can search for strings. Once you're in "more" type "h" to see the relevant subcommands.

Connect to your AIX machine using PuTTY and set #lines of scrollback to 20000 in the window configuration. cat the whole logfile, then choose 'Copy all to clipboard' and paste the log where you need it (in essence what WMP said above, only with the 'Copy all to Clipboard' added).
