Hi, all

SharePoint 2007 provides canned site usage reports.  I need to be able to dig in to the actual data.  There are detailed activity logs for the SharePoint site.  However, they are not in a user friendly format.  The data is encoded or refers to system tables. 

There are programs that allow an admin to view the actual log.  These pull 'friendly' versions (ex:  user names rather than a user key that ties to a system table).  Micro$oft has apps that expose the friendly version of the logs.  These (obviously) are insanely expensive and not an option for me.

Does anyone know of a free or low cost application that allows a site admin to view the SharePoint activity logs in a 'friendly' format?

Impossible is nothing
