Generating organized reports in Eclipse help/recommendations

Hey all,

I have created a conversion utility in Eclipse that converts format and variables from XML files to new variables/layouts. Currently, I have the utility printing out what it does to the Eclipse console. I need to generate a detailed and organized report rather. I have no experience with this whatsoever. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks for the responses in advance, if there's any additional information you may need please let me know.

Sorry, but nobody seems to know.
Maybe if you explain more about what you mean by organized reports you might have more luck.

sorry for the lack of detail. unfortunately I'm not sure specifically what I should use here.

A simple Excel spreadsheet could even work. Right now the tool is spitting out output to the console that looks like this:

Element Stats for Definition: SampleDefinition -- Parsed: 101 Skipped: 2 Total: 103
SKIPPED VARIABLES:
Variable Name: Variable1 Type: MATH
Variable Name: Variable2 Type: DATE


so I suppose my question is what can I use instead of printing output like this to the console, that will be more user-friendly (like an excel report, etc.)
