Access- How to log which user has modified access db?

Hi All,

We have one MS Access database, which is being shared/accessed by number of 
users at the same moment. Few of them are admin users too who can perform 
update/delete/insert operations too.

Now we have a requirement to log which users has perform which update 
operations. Is there some way, can you please advise.

Thank you so much in advance,

Best regards,
Sunil Somani

If you have User Level security enabled, you can add a column to each table 
and call the CurrentUser() function and add that user in the before update 
event of the form. Without that, you can use the fOSUserName function from 
the Access Web:

Sunil,

In addition to what Arvin said, it didn't sound like your application is 
split.  You will need to do that...  You actually should do that anyway. 
Here's some information on splitting.

Depending on the complexity of what you need to do, you may need to implement 
an audit log or a transaction log.  To do this in Access take a look at Allen 
Browne's method.

Restricting access to note attachments
Hi all, is there a way to restrict access to attachments on notes to specified users. I know we can, using the Security Roles, define who can and can't read/ write the notes fields but we would like our users to be able to view the note, but not open the attachment(s) unless they are the owner of that note (or at least in the business unit, etc.). I know this could be done for Word/ Excel files in Office (Password protection) but are looking for something more encompassing for all attachments inside CRM.

Access 2003 and Access 2007 Synchronization

There probably won't be a lot of updates on our end so the monthly cycle should work. After they synchronize, they will send a new version of the db and we will start over. My goal is to keep everything as simple as possible partially because I don't know how skillf...

Going offline without write access to registry
I suggest that POS doesn't go offline if it can't write into registry, displaying a message box instead telling that it couldn't access the registry. What happens if the POS machine goes offline without having access to edit the registry? This typically happen when the user is a normal user (not a power user) 1. The POS application will try to connect to the server main database within the pre-configured ‘Connect Timeout’ in the RMS Administrator (Typically 15 seconds) 2. The application will then try to connect to the pre-defined offline database (which is usually stored loc...
