I have spent some time developing an audit trail.
Any change to a table will be recorded.

The audit trail actually ended up looking like the one that can be found on the Microsoft website.  However, I developed my own and understand it!

All was working well until I transferred the audit code into a "Module".
It is now crashing. (For Each ccont In Myform.Controls).

I don't know why ??
(It is probably fairly fundamental as I am not very experienced).

To demonstrate look at this simple database and amend and save a record in form1.

Thanks,

However, the field (in table staff) "Auditmemo" is still blank.
I had expected it to have the audit of the changes.

I should add that I made several changes to the data via the form.

None of these changes are shown in the "Auditmemo" field

(Sorry folks I am not expecting you to do my debugging!)

However, in Module1 the line

MyForm.AuditMemo = addstr & MyForm.AuditMemo

... does NOT seem to write back the data to the Staff table.

The  MyForm.AuditMemo field has the correct data but it is NOT writing to the staff table.

Any thoughts?
