Word doc history

P: n/a
Hi

I have a feature to open word documents from my access app. Is it possible
that when a user saves a word document, my access app gets the name under
which the document is saved and the date and time of saving, so I can keep a
history of all word documents?

Thanks

I need the user to be able to keep track of for instance all faxes that have
been sent from within my app.

No.

Well, that's not really true. There is a way to do it, but I rather
doubt it's worth it. Outlook can do this, and it would just be a
matter of duplicating that function, but in practical terms I know
that it's not worth it. One of the first things I do with any Outlook
installation is to disable that feature, do to the system slowdown
that the feature causes.

I suppose, and I want to stress that I haven't actually tried this, is
to put a watch on the user's "Recent Documents" directory, and monitor
it for .DOC file additions. That will give you what you want, but I'm
not sure it would do what you want it to do.

What is it you are doing that would require a feature like this?

Oh, <putting away heavy artillery and getting out a flyswatter...>
Then you can filch the event logger code from Albert Kallal's website
(be a lad and leave his sig files in the code) and then just put the
stuff in the Click event of a button...

Not sure how you'd do it if you just did a Fax from File/Print. I
guess you could check the current printer (code's in ADH, I think).
And then you'd just log the entries that are faxes.

How would we do it in outlook? I am also trying to keep a log of all emails
sent from my access app?


If you're doing it all through automation, you'd call the Send command
and before you release all the variables, you'd log them to a table...

I think either Albert Kallal or Allen Browne (I think it's AK) has
code that does the logging. So you'd do something like

validate inputs
write values to Outlook & send
write values to Access table (just use the Logging functions...)

and that's pretty much it.
