Hi all,

First of all I'd like to thank you for reading this, I'm looking for answers no one has been able to provide and I hope, if you are reading this, that you may be able to help.

I had just come back from a two week holiday to find that, after 2 hours of being at work I have been suspended. Why? Well at my work place we have a 'tracker'. It's an excel document where we keep records of all the commission earned in a month. We take calls and we 'switch' people's 'providers' (I'm not going to be specific as there is no need, however, I will have all the details needed to crack this!)

Once a 'switch' has been made, the customers name and postcode are recorded. You earn money for a switch. More switches in a day gives you more money, each time you hit a certain number of switches your money doubles. You also have a conversion rate. Amount of calls against the amount of switches. The higher the conversion, the higher the payout.

Ok, so you know how a tracker works. Each one is passworded and only I and the mangers have access to it. It is located on a server.

So I have been suspended because a 'switch' from the 30th of the month was copied and pasted to another day in the month, effectively boosting my commission.

Oddly enough the same thing happened to my tracker last month, but the data instered to give me extra commission was from two seperate trackers from two sperate indiviuals (it would have been next to impossible to get this information) so management let it slide. I think there is foul play going on and some is trying to get me fired, but it is not necessary to go in to any more detail than I already have.

SO... after that little rant my question is as follows. Is there any way of obtaining information about a file that is usually not found when clicking on the properties? (All the terminals are windows 7, I'm not sure what they are using on the servers, but I'm sure it will be the current equivalent) i.e. IP addresses that have modified the file, when they modified it and to what extent, how many time it has been modified... essentially I need the complete history of that file from birth.

Thank you again for reading this and any help in squeezing some evidence out of the file, server, local network computers, or anything that may help, I look forward hearing it.

Much love.

Ersan

You can turn on logging on the server but that has to be done beforehand and you need access to the logs. There may also be an option to restore to a prior version that will tell you the different revisions of the file. But you should work with the network admins to see what is going on. It's not hard to crack an Excel password protection if it's done that way. A good way of solving this is to make duplicate copies of the changes, do a Save As to your desktop at the same time you save the changes to the network file. That way if there is something up, you can look at your local copy and compare the two. Just don't go saving over it as you want the save time to match the network copy.

The other simple explination is that there was a mistake made in saving of copying something. Copy and paste to the wrong column or something.
