After much web surfing, I see data macros that reference VBA must have the VBA in the database that is making the data changes.  So if someone links to the database and makes data changes, we can't grab their user name unless they have the GetUserName function in their database.  

We think someone is changing data from another database but we can't tell who and we don't want to rely on everyone remembering to put the GetUserName function in every database they create or even make a reference to a database that has that function.

Has anyone come up with a solution that doesn't require VBA?
