    Get users to sign they have read a document

    Our Quality document syetm requires staff to sign they have read the documents. When a user reads a document I need them to be able to press a button that captures their logged in username then writes this to a table with the current date. Is this possible. The table could be in the same word document, a spreadsheet or database.

    Yes it is possible, No I don't have the time to do it at present

    The basic process I would use would be:
    Set up a database on the network with fields for username, date, doc id, version # etc
    Add a check box content control to the document
    Add a macro to run when the content control is selected. Macro to add a record to the database when it is checked.

    This would of course require network access to work properly. If users can read documents offline then you may need to store this info inside the document or come up with another method of feeding the collected 'read notices' when they rejoin the network.
