I am faced with doing a huge migration, so I am going through history to make sure I capture every change and review it prior to this push.

Is there any way to export a list of the History, preferably to a spreadsheet, to make this task easier?

I thought that selecting History, copying, and pasting would be the answer, and that worked well, but it does not grab the affected programs (path+name) so I'm still looking for the correct answer.

RLS, I don't know if you'l be able to get what you want from that Local history feature in CF Builder/Eclipse. More on that in a moment.

But really, I think you're expecting too much from it. What you'd be better served by would be a version control system (Git, Subversion, CVS, etc.), though I do appreciate that such would only help you going forward. They would not help you capture the history before they were implemented.

As for the Local History feature, do beware of a potential concern, even if somehow you CAN get a listing of all the edits that it tracked: beware that there is a max file size setting, which limits what files are tracked at all with the Local history feature. See Preferences>General>Workspace>Local History

Charlie, thank you, we are moving to a GIT system, but we need to make this final migration first.  We are using a subversion system, though, already, and that's the history I'm trying to get.  I can grab everything from 1/1/2016 on just fine, but I can't get the actual files involved, with paths, that would make this so much easier.

Well, wait, then: if you’re not using the Local History feature, but Subversion instead, then why not seek what you want from Subversion itself (any UI or command-line interface you have to it)?

This may just be a case where the version control integration built into CFB/Eclipse is just not as capable as it could be, for this rather unique need you have. Have you yet tried to get it from SVN directly?

Charlie,

Good call! Please excuse me while I wipe this egg off of my face.

I was able to capture the log, save it to text, import it to Excel, and clean the crap in much faster time. This should help immensely.

Thank you.
