Capture Attachment Date

mvm835 used Ask the Experts™
I'm looking for a manner to capture and autopopulate a field on a form.  I have a form that users attach completed reports to.  I need a method of identifying what date the user actually attached a document to the form.

I don't think that can be done.
Close, but not exactly right is perhaps to have a notesfield change when e.g. attachment names/numbers/sizes change?

Check the content of rich text field in PostOpen and store information about attachments in global variable. Check it again in QuerySave, compare and set date field.
I hope the C doesn't mean that the answer sucks?
I can't help it that notes doesn't have a facitity like that! I tried to help you around the obstacle.....

better C than nothing ;-)
