Log Parser Utility is a revised version of the "Exchange Log Parsing tool". This is great for opening any text based file and searching through it. Especially good for cumbersome log files.
If you have to search through large log files or text based files this simple tool can be a huge help. It creates a separate file that it writes out the data your searching for (if found) too. This makes large files into small easy to manage files or reports however you want to look at it.
You can exclude data strings from the final results so you only get what you want or need.
