I need some code that generates text of when the button was last clicked.

Bottom line, the button is linked to a query and I need to know when the query was last run

so
button1 - button that runs the query
field1 the field that shows when the last time button 1 was clicked



thanks in advance,
Vinnie

Do you mean last clicked during the current session, or ever, by any user?

Generally, if you want to track application functionality and use, you create a separate table in your database for that, and then add code to events (Form_Open, Report_Open, cmd_XXX_Click, ...) which will populate that table.

I generally include fields for:

Form_Name
Event_Name
Event_DateTime
User_Name

Best way is to write a subroutine that writes to this information to the table and just call that subroutine from within each of the events you want to track.

You can add something like this to your button:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
   Me.Text1.Value = Now()
End Sub
