5.11 Data Extraction

The video tutorial Extracting Data and Converting Log Files on Youtube will explain how to extract data.

The Details window offers the possibility to extract data from log records. Data extraction is based on custom columns definitions. They are described in detail in Custom Columns Definitions. When you supply all the information needed for data extraction and you press the OK button in an Extract Text or Extract Data dialog Ascolog Insight will create the appropriate commands in the layout's custom columns definition which extract the specified data. This means that instead of using the data extraction dialogs you could also create the appropriate commands by hand.
