Working with database

You can read events stored in a database and you can upload events into a database table.

Event Log Explorer support Microsoft SQL Server databases.

First you should connect the database. To do so, select Database->Connect from the main menu.

You cannot connect more than one database simultaneously. If you want to connect another database, you should disconnect the connected database before establishing a new connection.

To disconnect from the database, select Database->Disconnect from the main menu.

Create database

Although it's recommended to create new databases from special tools like SQL Server Management studio, Event Log Explorer lets you create a new database.

To create database, click Create New Database in Database Connect dialog, type server name and your credentials and click Connect button. Then type database name, its file parameters and review or modify database creation script. Click Create button to start the creation script.

Upload events into table

To upload events into a table from the active event view, select Database->Upload to Table from the main menu.

In Upload to table dialog, type table name and select the required upload options.

  • Append if table exists – if checked, Event Log Explore will append events to the existing table. If not checked and table exists, Event Log Explorer will delete all events from the table before upload.
  • Export XML data – if checked, Event Log Explorer will extract XML for each event and upload it into the table. This may take long time on large event views, so we recommend using Event Log Database Export utility to upload events.

Load events from table

To load events from the database, select Database -> Load from table.

Select the required table name and click OK.

Event Log Explore will display events from the database table as a native windows event log.
