Use the Trace File Viewer to view the trace file and interpret the data to assist in problem determination.
® Expeditor uses Common Base Event logging to collate trace messages into a single file to make it easier for you and support personnel to diagnose a problem. Common Base Event logging provides problem-determination data rich in activity and control-flow information that the Log and Trace Analyzer uses to accelerate problem determination and increase system serviceability and quality. The client formats this information using XML to provide a reader-friendly user interface from which you can read all system messages.
To view the trace file, perform the following step:

Parent topic: Analyzing Lotus Expeditor Client data
- If Lotus Expeditor is running, from the client menu, select Help -> Support -> View Trace to open a Web browser that displays the Trace File Viewer, which is a collection of trace messages for the current session.
- If the Lotus Expeditor Client is not running but has been started at least once, you can double-click the trace-log-0.xml file in the workspace\logs directory to open the trace file in a Web browser.
- When common base event logging is disabled, the trace file is formatted as HTML instead of XML. By default, the file is called trace-log-0.html. Double-click the file to open it in a Web browser. The file is also legible from a text editor; it contains a limited number of HTML tags.
