    Automatically general date when another field is written to

    Hi, apologies if this is in the wrong section.

    I've created a field and set the type to general date.

    What I want to do is have access insert the date when a certain other field is written to. The other field is called notice. When I have written my message in this field, I want access to get the date andtime from the clock and insert it in the date field. I want to do this as in the future I wish to write to the notice field from a website (connected to database via odbc), and when that data is added, I want access to add the additional info to the date field.

    Is this possible?

    There are no triggers in Access so you would have to do it yourself. This is best done in a form. I don't know about doing it from a WebSite.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
