Hi,

The code below is not recording when users enter a spreadsheet, simply when they leave it.

Can anyone see why that is?

Thanks
Seamus
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Debug.Print "closed"
MyFile = "C:\Documents and Settings\travseam\Desktop\temp.txt"
'set and open file for output
fnum = FreeFile()
Open MyFile For Output As fnum
'write project info and then a blank line. Note the comma is required
Print #fnum, Environ("USERNAME") & " left at " & Now()
Write #fnum,
Close #fnum

End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Debug.Print "open"
MyFile = "C:\Documents and Settings\travseam\Desktop\temp.txt"
'set and open file for output
fnum = FreeFile()
Open MyFile For Output As fnum
'write project info and then a blank line. Note the comma is required
Print #fnum, Environ("USERNAME") & " entered at " & Now()
Write #fnum,
Close #fnum
End Sub

You are overwriting the file each time. Try this:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Debug.Print "closed"
WriteFile Environ("USERNAME") & " left at " & Now()
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Debug.Print "open"
WriteFile Environ("USERNAME") & " entered at " & Now()
End Sub
Sub WriteFile(strText As String)
   Dim MyFile As String, fNum As Integer
   MyFile = "C:\test\temp.txt"
   'set and open file for output
   fNum = FreeFile()
   Open MyFile For Append As fNum
   'write project info and then a blank line. Note the comma is required
   Print #fNum, strText
   Write #fNum,
   Close #fNum

End Sub
