I am writing a vb program that will store the machine current time to the Access database in the file server.

What I am worried about is that if I use the client's machine time by calling "Now", this will store the users machine's time. If the user set the time incorrectly, the data will be wrong.

Is there any way to get the fileserver time so that all the users will use the same standard of time.

Thanks
