Pete Hall just showed me an easy way to set and use a trigger program. 
What I have done is set a trigger on the physical file which calls a
program that:

  a) MOVEs the USER field from the System Data Structure to a 10-character
field in the record, and 

  b)  does  TIME to the Z data field, for a date&time stamp. (by the way,
this is both date and time.)

By doing it this way I should be able to ignore all further dealings with
timestamping records in this file, or its logicals, right?

  This works well excepting the other question I intended to ask tonight:

I can set a trigger for  insert, change, and delete.  Insert does not seem
to be the same action as Adding a record?    Is "insert" different than
"add"?  Or am I just not doing it right yet?
