Login Form

I have a login form that allows the user to enter the system.  Once you gain access, it opens a form (Search)  to login to access a record. I would like to tie the user that logged into the first form to the record that is searched.

Log in Form - Allows User to enter Database

Search Form - Allows User to search record using a specific ID

Any Suggestions are appreciated.

Thank You!

What do you mean by 'tie the user'?

Do you mean you want to stop the user from moving to a different record?

No, I want to show that the User touched that record.

Sounds like you are going to need to run an append query in the form current event procedure.

The append query should add a record to a log table identifying the record, the user and the time.

Dim str
str = "Insert into logTable(Recid, UName, TouchTime) Values( & me.recid & ",'" & currentuser & "',#" & Now() & "#")"
Currentdb.execute str, dbfailonerror

You can access the currently logged in user with

User.Identity.Name

Ignore that, I see you are Access programming; my comment was for ASP.NET.
