ETL Log File

The ETL refresh process writes message records to a log file found at:

( …Program Files (x86)\DataSelf\Dataself ETL\Log xxxxxx.txt)
(Where XXXXXX is the ETL Project name and refresh batch number)


  • The log file may contain messages from previous refresh processes.
  • There is a date-time stamp on every log record.
  • In Notepad use Ctrl-End to show the last line of the log file.
  • You may wish to create a desktop shortcut for each refresh log file.
  • Use the date-time stamps to monitor performance.

Error messages should contain the word "ERROR" but not always.

Normal informational messages have text that begins with:
