I don't know if this is the right forum but somebody might have solution for my problem.

I have windows 2003 server and windows 2008 server.
On both I have enabled "Log spooler information events" so I get printing events in system event log.
Now I would like to get monthly report with "dumpel.exe" and using "-format dtcus"

On Windows 2003 server it is working o.k., I get all the needed data in text file so I can import data to excel, but on Windows 2008 server I don't get that data just the string.

Data from
win 2003 server
"3/1/2010 15:52:40 "Server name" domain\username 70 "Document name" Username "Server name" 2638 "Number of printed pages"

Win 2008 server
3/1/2010 9:32:17 "Server name" domain\username Document 67, outbind://19-00000000CDB2B252ECB4F54693D98D816CC0230E0700206C87 owned by username was printed on servername through port Size in bytes: 2030996. Pages printed: 2. No user action is required. To stop logging information events for the print spooler, in Control Panel, open Printers, right-click a blank area of the window, click Run as Administrator, click Server Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then clear the Log spooler information events check box."

Can someone please help, how can I get the same data on win 2008 server as I get on win 2003 server.
