The Superlog Audit Trail solution works great.  Followup questions:

1. Is there a way to display changes to all records in one field in a Foolter or Trailing Grand Summary.  Would I just create another field and use the List() function?
2. If you incude a lot of fields in the Data-log field, the text can grow exponeentially.  Do you have any script that periodically clears this field or better yet, one that can clear all entries past a certain number (say 100)?

1) I suppose you could use a self-join for all records and then use the List() function to concatenate the values for display in a Footer or Trailing Grand Summary, but that could be a huge list depending on the number of records and number of fields being monitored.

2) To limit a list to a certain number of lines, you can use the LeftValues() function. It works just like Left() except that it counts values in a List (meaning carriage returns) instead of characters. You could build this into the Auto-Enter if you wanted or make it part of a script.

LeftValues().  Haven't used that one yet.  Thanks for the tip.
