I have a continuous form, each record has several fields that may be updated. I want to update the PostedBy field and PostedDte field if that particular record was changed. I'm thinking of using the "Dirty" function on leaving one record and going to the next to update that info prior to writing the record. What event (and where is it) gets control when I try to move to the next record?

If any fields have been changed then the form's Before Update event is fired just before Access saves the changes.  You could try the following sort of code...

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
    PostedBy = CurrentUser
    PostedDate = Date
End Sub
