I have a Delphi 7 app that sits in the background on W98 to W2003, that talks to a database via ODBC.

I want it to now record the path and file names of files saved on the PC, from any application, saving to either the local hard drive or network server.

Let me understand... you want to spy others application and see the files they access?

Lets say that I have 2000 useless users on my network, and they save files in bizaar places and loose documents. I want to be able to store the filenames and paths in a database table, for easy searching.
This way, I can ask them for a part of the filename, and then quickly search the database.
