If you have a Linux box or emulation of Linux on another operating system,
apply the following example command to your log file.
sed 's/111100167.pdf/111100167.pdf 8754 First St. San Jose/i;'
sed 's/111100168.pdf/111100168.pdf 8789 Somewhere/i;'
It's a batch-mode search-and-replace (make it a script to replace everything
you typically would), which you can periodically run on a Linux server, for
example. I am not sure what you are trying to achieve, but I imagine that
you want to deliver a client a self-explanatory log file.
Hope it helps,
