capture table access

I'm trying to capture user details each time certain tables are accessed.

I've used triggers in the past to capture inserts and updates with user, host, dates etc. detail but not for simple access.

Is there a way to do this.

Take a look at the audit capabilities of SQL Server: SQL Server Audit (Database Engine).

This could be my solution however I'm running SQL2014 Standard and this appears to only work on enterprise.

Yes, SQL Server Audit Feature is an Enterprise edition feature whereas Profiler would work fine for any edition of SQL Server
