    Well, if you have a secured database, you could store the the user logon in
    your opening form.

    Lets say your opening form is a Switchboard.
    You could create a Logon table with 3 fields, LogonId (autonumber) ,
    UserName and logonTime.
    Then in the Open event of your switchboard, have something like this

    Dim rsLogons as DAO.recordset
    Set rsLogons = CurrentDb.Openrecordset("Logon")
    With rsLogons
    .Addnew
    !UserName = CurrentUser()
    !LogonTime = Now()
    .Update
    .Close
    End With

    Hope this helps
    Regards
    Diarmuid
