Is it possible to determine from anywhere when a file was last modified by an individual.

I am looking particularly in an office environment where many people have access to public files. I want to be able to determine who last saved/modified a document in all office products (ie word, excel, access, powerpoint, and publisher)?

    Accepted Solution

    If you enable auditing on a file/folder, you will get security log entries when a file is touched.
