Good Day Experts!

I have a little modification required for my application.  When the User performs and Add on one of the Tabs, I need to insert the IP Address of their computer into the record.

I have searched the net and am having trouble finding just the simple one IPAddress example.

Can you recommend a link to a how-to for this?

Thanks,

Is this a web application, Forms app, or a console app?
