I am building a database to track each ad that graphic artists build. I've got the forms built, but I'd like to ad a timer that is bound to each ad that shows the total time spent on each ad. It needs to have a start/stop/pause button and maintain the value in a table for each ad. The artists sometimes move from one ad to another without finishing, so it needs to be able to be paused and continued at a later time. Is there a way to do this in access? I've tried several of the timers, but none of them will append the time to each record and none have been able to be paused to pick up later. Thanks in advance for the advice.
