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[^]
and another sample at[^]

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[^]
