I can't remember whether i used a list, document, or workflow to show history in a field everytime I edited it. It would put the date, name and comment in the line above the text box.  Now I can't figure out how i did it.  Any thoughts.

Are you talking about the same field as the standard out of the box Comments field. You could add this. ( Or replicate it I guess)

If you create a custom list or use something like a issues list there is an option on the multiple lines of text field that says "Append changes to existing text".

You can turn on version history on If you need similiar functionality for a document library. This will require you to click on the "View History" button to see all the changes.

Append-Only Comments is an existing column that does the same thing as well.  Thanks!
