I'm trying to set something up so that the "last_modified" field in my layer automatically runs a VB or Python now( ) script to re-populate it whenever I edit a record or the shape of a feature. Is this possible?
Yeah, automatic triggered events are mostly going to be the purview of some programming, generally through extensions (program or feature class) or add-ons. This seems to be the simplest choice I've found:
There has been confirmation from Esri engineering staff on the forums (though nothing official) that SDE in 10.1 will have a built-in change tracker for feature classes. But if you need it beyond SDE and can't wait, the extension above or something similar will be your best bet.
