We have inherited a sharepoint system for a client from another company(who had developed).  Today we faced an issue that a sensitive file was accessed by a sharepoint user, printed and sent out.

i would like to know how and where do i check on which user accessed these documents.

currently i have the file names and the potential dates it was accessed.

any suggestions.

Hi,
which (exact) SharePoint version and edition?
If the audit features (if available from the version side) have not yet been activated, then you have no chance within SharePoint. Then the only chance you have is to analyze the IIS logs of the SharePoint web app (if the logs have been activated) and search for a GET on this file - normally the requesting user id is logged there.
