Well as you are going to log to a database everytime someone logs onto your application then you could just use database triggers to capture that information (if you've applied SP2)
Have a look at https://www.simple-talk.com/sql/t-sql-programming/logon-triggers/[^]
and another sample at
http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2009/06/26/sql-server-interesting-observation-of-logon-trigger-on-all-servers-solution/[^]
and
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/bb326598(v=sql.90).aspx[^]
 
That may get messy if other applications can log on to the same database, but you could use the principle / table structure and write to it directly from your application.
 
A general observation - if this is new code (and not an enhancement to a large existing suite of applications) then you should really consider using more up-to-date technology than VB6 (which is largely out of support) - even if it is part of an existing suite you can still use .NET see http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=3264[^]
