What should I do?

The question isn't very clear. Do you mean a field to flag the last time a record was read, updated, inserted? Are you using a front end form for modifying the data or the table view directly? – Steve Homer Jun 22 '10 at 20:49

Before Access 2010, the only way was to use events in forms to stamp the record with date/time in a field devoted to that purpose.

A2010 implements table-level data macros that allow you to implement the equivalent of a trigger to do this without using form events. I don't know how to do it, but it's now possible.
