    Default Audit Trail

    I have been able to create an audit trail in a generic txt file that tracks all changes to various records, however I am now looking for a way to incorporate the changes into a field within the records so I can reference just the changes for 1 specific record in the audit trail.

    In essence a history of what took place on that one recrod without other records changes.

    I currently have a memo field setup for tracking changes, but don't know how to have it automatically update the changes into this field.

    Can anyone help.

    Thanks

    Hi Chris....

    Take a look at field events "CanWriteField" PP-104 Xbasic Reference Manual.pdf
    It talks about how to capture field values before & after they are changed. It will most likely involve some xbasic. I am not sure if action scripting handles this area, but you could also look for a solution there as well.

    On this page click on search & type in "RE: CFR 21 Part 11!" or just "audit trail" - less the quote marks

    Do the search with the quote marks (for more than one word).

    Audit trails are a "built-in" function of Alpha. You need to insert a simple xbasic command into two field rule events. It's somewhere in the Manuals...
