Default controls, any updated?

Hi all,
Hope the festivities have left you intact?
My database has several forms for data entry each with around 100 controls. I want to make sure that users are warned that they have not made any alterations to the record so nothing is being recorded in the underlying table. I have done 2 forms setting the after update property to a boolean updated =true. When the user clicks the close button msgbox checks if updated=true before closing and warns the user if appropriate. Is there a way of programmatically working through all controls to check if their content has altered to save having to laboriously write code for each of the 100 plus controls?
Hope you can help before I go completely mad repeatedly writing thousands of lines of code.
Seasons greetings.
Thank you
