Subject: [SERIALST] Usiing MS Access for usage statistics

Greetings Serial librarians:

I am plannning on using our MS Access database I have been developing to
track usage of our journal collection.  That way I can then combine
statistics with other data I already have stored on the database (such
subjects established for each journal) to provide more useful
I would therefore like to be able to program Access to act as a counter
that the column contains a number that increases by one every time I
on it) for the columns I am using to track usage.  Has anyone tried this
before?  Is it possible to get Access to act as a counter, and if so
Perhaps there is even some usage study software that can be attached to
Access database that would provide this kind of functionality.
Is there anyone out there who has had any experience doing this kind of
thing?  I would be very interested in any solutions you may have come up
