Update field to NOW() after data added or changed

In my ms access table, I have a "last updated" field, which i want updated to NOW() after any fields are added or updated.

I know it's an EVENT but not sure how to enable.  I'd prefer to use an EXPRESSION and not VBA.

Thank you, but I'm looking for more specifics.  At what level is the update?  Form?  

and what would the expression look like?
