    Get Server Date and Time

    Hi, I have an A97 database which requires people to log on and the database catches the users date and time of the log on from their computer. Lately, one person in particular has been resetting their computer date and time to generate one more of their liking. My question is that since this is on a network environment, is there anyway to get the log in date and time off the server which would hopefully limit any tampering of individual computers?

    Thanks

    PS: I forgot to mention that our network runs NT4.0.

    Re: Get Server Date and Time

    Hi Kevin,
    If you're running NT it is possible to restrict the ability to change the system time which should solve your problem. Unless of course the person in question is an administrator?? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    Hope that helps.

    Re: Get Server Date and Time

    I have a similar request like that of Kevin. We use Access 97 running on an NT 4.0 server. There are no users changing the server's system time, however I'd like to log the time from the server, since we have users connecting across various time zones. Furthermore, one can't assume that a user who uses Access on their computer has the correct system time. The correct time logged is critical for certain time based calculations. Our NT server has an AT schedule that syncs the time with the NIST time server at boot up and once a week. There is also an ASP capable web service running on the same box. I would greatly appreciate any hints or suggestions. Thanks.

    Perhaps this article from Dev Ashish at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0039.htm>The Access Web</A> would be of help.
