Is it possible to create a field that will log edits in any field on a record?

    Hi, 

    I am wondering if it is possible to create a field that will log any changes made to any field on a record? The idea is that this field would then create a log of changes on its own table. 

    I am currently achieving this by having an email sent to myself any time that a change is made. This worked fine for a while, but as our app gets larger and more data is entered, my email is starting to get pretty full. 

    Suggestions for other options would be great as well if the logging field is not possible. 

    Thanks! :)

    I think Dans solution from another post is what you're looking for though it involves the IOL technique to be installed.

    I suggest routing the emails to a gmail box.  Gmail holds a lot and has great search ability.
