    Tracking

    I need to develope a solution that will track and log info on every file that is opened on a certain system. The information would essentially be the ID of the computer (on a network) from where the file is open, the user and time of the opening process. What application would be the most efficient to do this kind of job?
    Thanks in advance...

    Files on a web server? Web servers generally log exactly this kind of information. There are numerous programs that can give you reports from the logs, 'though I don't personally know the names or reputations of any of them. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    If you mean files on a file server, Windows NT/2000 has an "auditing" feature that you can turn on for folders on NTFS partitions. I think it generates massive data files, so I've only tried it for debugging really weird problems. Not sure from your post whether you need to be able to do this.

    Basically , not a web server but a set of public folders in an intranet...again the logging must be part of an Office (WD?AL) application.....Counting on the administrators on this project is not realistic. But I got the picture and in what direction to go.
    Thanks again...
