Log for Office Detect and Repair

Does anybody know on the office 2003 detect and repair tool where on the computer is the log saved? Or how do I know what is being repaired or fixed after a detect and repair operation? is there a log or where can I get information about that?

Please help me. I know on office 2007 there is a diagnostic tool that helps on this, but I do not know on office 2003 where to see the log for that (detect and repair).

Re: logfile

Assuming this file has the .log extension, run it and use your favorite file manager to find *.log with a creation or modification date of today.

If it doesn't find it, do it first thing in the morning and check for *.* with a creation or modification date of today. You'll be amazed how many files are selected but if there is a log-file it will be one of those.

Re: logfile

Is there any format on the name of that log? this to differentiate it from other logs...

or how will I know what is changed when office detect and repair is performed?

Re: logfile

Just try and see. And open it with Notepad to see the contents.
