 Event ID in Event Logs

I am trying to create a script, that will allow me to search event logs for
an event id.
code works fine with security log, but when it gets to system or application
it starts pull out some # for eventid, that make no sence i.e.:
-2147483584 -?
-2147483584 -?
1007, this one is actual # that you can see in event log viewer.
How would I interprite system and application eventids to something

Thank You

Select Case logID
Case "Security" logonID = "(Security)}"
    logname= "'Security'"
Case "security" logonID = "(Security)}"
    logname = "'Security'"
Case "Application" logonID = "(Backup)}"
    logname = "'Application'"
Case "application" logonID = "(Backup)}"
    logname = "'Application'"
Case "System" logonID = "(Backup)}"
    logname = "'System'"
Case "system" logonID = "(Backup)}"
    logname = "'System'"
Case Else MsgBox "Provide Proper Name for log"
    logname = ""
End Select

set LogFileSet1 = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate," &
.ExecQuery("select * from Win32_NTLogEvent where Logfile=" & logname)
For each Logfile in LogFileSet1
msgbox logfile1 & Logfile.EventIdentifier & vbCrlf
