How to print logs for AL observing lists

Use the log book. Choose filter from log browser. I usually use observer. In Select Log Entries section, "Matching log entries in browser object list" is selected by default. Instead select "All objects in this observing list" as shown in snipped image Then click Copy and paste in notepad or word or whatever. Here's what output looks like in Notepad:

I used the export function to save in a delimited format (I used pipes (|) since I have commas in the details) and then imported into a spreadsheet program. I sent the coordinator the formatted spreadsheet along with the | delimited TXT file in case the program they used had problems reading the spreadsheet version.
