Timestamping a record

P: n/a
Is there a way to find out when a record has been modified last, that is
automatically updated by Access??
Like an automatic timestamp in the record or so??

Kind regards,

Johan

1) Create a date/time field in the table to hold this information

2) In the form used for this table(s) place a textbox (hidden if you wish) and bind it to
this field.

3) In the BeforeUpdate event of the Form, set the value of this new textbox to Now

Example:
Me.txtTimeStamp = Now

Not that I know of... if you are modifying your record in a form, you
could update a hidden timestamp field. Otherwise, I think you gotta
use SQL Server...
