  • Archived PMs, reading the XML format

    Hey folks,

    Has anyone got a nifty scheme to read and search their PMs from the downloaded XML file?

    Searching through them in Word just doesn't seem that fun...

    :)

    Cheers,

    I keep them in a folder and use findstr to search them, then I open the matching file in Notepad and search for the text I'm focusing on.

    That works very well, but I'd like something cleaner.

      What are you guys trying to do exactly? Are you trying to view them externally?

        This seems to work fairly well.
