Question Grep Options

Hi Folks,

I have one query I have a log file to which I reach to putty and I open that particular log file in vi editor and search through /pattern, Suppose I have to search
HTML Code:
<ProgramId>627857272120951075</ProgramId>
Then I have to open abc.log

Code:
cd /var/log/
ls -ltr
vi abc.log
/627857272120951075

I want to know is there any other way in which without opening the log file first
we can know that particular log file conatain the
627857272120951075 this or not any other thing grep or egrep .
