I just maintain my spreadsheet database by hand. When I record a new
event, I file away the event data and add a corresponding entry to the
spreadsheet. I use the spreadsheet as a sort of index into my archive
of event data files.
What I did was to write a spreadsheet macro that allows me to select an
event file name in the sheet and call up Winquake to display that file.
Just click it and view it, right from the spreadsheet. I can also
pass the file to a home brew program that replays the event on the
monitor, and a couple of other things.
If you are looking for a way to import the event header data directly
from Winquake into a spreadsheet, I don't think there is a simple way to
do that. I suppose you could write a program that would scan a
directory full of event files and extract selected header data into a
set of comma separated fields in a data file that an Excel spreadsheet
could then import. Would be in interesting exercise, but not entirely
trivial to do it right.
