    What is the best way to run an audit on a database to find any added,
    deleted, or modified data? I am thinking something along the lines of a make
    table query.

    Not sure how a make table query would help you.

    You want to find any added, deleted, or modified data since when? Do you
    have an older copy of the database and you want to compare that to a newer
    copy?

    The only way to track changes to the data is to create some type of audit
    trail. If you do a search for previous posts regarding "audit trails" you
    should find many methods to do this.

    Access does not do this for you, but if all entries are made through forms
    you can use the form events to manage it.

    Details in:
    Audit Trail - Log changes at the record level
    at:
    http://allenbrowne.com/AppAudit.html

    You will need to understand some VBA and SQL to achieve this.

    don't listen to these MDB idiots.

    MDB is a piece of shit database.
    spit on anyone that uses it.


    SQL Server has simple triggers to do this sort of thing.

    Don't use MDB for a single record or a single user.
