Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are many tools out there, but the one I use primarily and is free is Microsoft’s Log Parser 2.2. It supports text, CSV, and XML formats.
There’s some training curve involved, but that’s the same with any other tool. You can download it from here:
