Converting My filters into a text string

Hi,
A slightly different question.
I have a continuous form.
I will apply some standard Access filters to this form.
E.g. Show all records where Product = "Widget"

I want to write a log to a one field  audit table in the format ;

"28/02/2011 17:22:20    Filter Applied : Product = Widget"

How do I capture the "Product = Widget" as a piece of text.  It does not have to be exactly in this format - I merely want to record the details of the filter applied.

I am hoping that there is a simple solution for this.  If it is very complex than it might not be worth my while.

try
msgbox me.filter

see what comes out.

if that gives you what you need, you can do this

"28/02/2011 17:22:20    Filter Applied : " & me.Filter

You might check to insure the Filter is on first, to avoid Null values:

If Me.FilterOn Then
  CurrentProject.Connection.Execute "INSERT INTO SomeTable(SomeField) VALUES '" & Now & " Filter Applied: " &  Me.Filter & "'"
End If
