I have a client with an application that in one week can create over a million lines in a tab delimited text file where the respective tab delimitations on a single record could exceed 455 columns.
I need to create a solution where I can select the text logfile and search for a term and write it to report.
Some of the text files exceed 100mg. To read them even into excel I have had to use a tool to slice up the text files.
The logfile, for legal reasons, cannot leave the network it is in. The creator of the application knows that they have a problem and they have not created a solution.
I am open to any solutions someone might have to offer. Right now I do not have access to a server running a scripting language in the network that I could use to write a web based app. I have asked the IT person to see if they can get that for me...I'm not holding my breath.
