On our client database, we'd like to add a column that is automatically populated with date & time when that record changed. How can we do that? I have already created a column and called it 'Last Event Date.'

Use the beforeupdate event procedure for the form used to modify the data.
Add one line to the procedure.

me.[last Event Date] = Now()
