Insert and Amend Datestamps

Question:
I have a table in Informix that is changed regularly. The records have no datestamp, so how do I get the date/time of amends and inserts to this table without altering the table structure or using triggers (I can’t do any alterations to the database)?

Answer:
You may want to look at the auditing capabilities of the later Informix engines. If your engine is recent enough to support auditing, you can track many types of security-related items with the auditing facility.
