I often copy entire plain text log files into a certain spreadsheet (Excel) and then use the "Data -> Text to columns" command.  Choosing "Fixed Width"  then allows me to format many tables at once provided they are of the same type.  This works very well if you have e.g. many regressions in a log file because output is always in exactly the same columns.  (Not sure whether this would help with complicated cross-tabs, however.)
