    You need to use VB to create a function that will write out your log file. There is a built-in VB object (FileSystemObject) that can be used to open, read and write to files.

    Here is a simple example from the Help files built into Access 2002:

    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set a = fs.CreateTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", True)
    a.WriteLine("This is a test.")

    Here is an example of reading in a preexisting file:

    Sub OpenTextFileTest
    Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2, ForAppending = 3
    Dim fs, f
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set f = fs.OpenTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", ForAppending,TristateFalse)
    f.Write "Hello world!"
    End Sub
