Dirty skipping line in code

I have a form on which I capture a User's ID and timestamp when a record is entered. However, sometimes another user will look at the record (before it is worked on), and that info gets recorded. I don't want that situation. So I put a Dirty criteria on the code. The thought is that the info will only be captured if it was the first time the record was actually worked on (not viewed):

If IsNull(Me.DateInvoiceInDTU) And Me.Dirty = False Then
        Me.DateInvoiceInDTU = Now()
        Me.UserLoggedInvoice = GetUserCredentials(2)
        Me.text2 = Me.ActiveControl.Name
End If

This code works, in that the Date is not recorded, and the text2 field is not recorded. However, the UserLoggedInvoice is recorded. Any suggestions?

Maybe you need to include

If Me.NewRecord = True ' or False

somewhere.

Where is that code above located - what event ?

have a line of code in all your field controls that set a flag only if a change is made.

update userloggedinvoice only if this flag is on.
