Import network computer EventLogs to SQL table

By mdenner,

Creates the required table and stored procedure to facilitate the import of
Event Log WARNING and FAILURE entries from a target computer into a SQL using Microsoft's LogParser
for monitoring and analysis.

In order to import and analyze a number of computers' Event Logs, you should create a scheduled task
with a series of steps that each execute this procedure against a single system. Unless you want to
keep a historical archive of event log messages, you'll want to make the first step
'TRUNCATE TABLE EventLogs', so that at any time you only have the past five days' logs.
