I'm trying to access some data from PI Message Logs and I need you guys' help. Currently I have the .dat files (pimsg_XXXXX.dat), and I like to access the files to determine who is accessing the PI server and what program they are doing it in. I have written VBA code such that once the file is in an Excel spreadsheet it will parse the data and return what I need. However, I'd like to automate the conversion between .dat and .csv files. I have no idea where to begin so I was hoping that you guys can lead me in the right path. I'm assuming that since this isn't directly PI related that I may have to create a script with PowerShell, but I'm not sure if this is even possible.
