I need to create a trigger (or something else) that updates a table if a certain table is added to the database. I've created an insert-trigger on the SYSOBJECTS-table in the database. This would helpup the problem but it doesn't seem to trigger at all. Is there something that I've missed, or isn't it possible to set triggers on the sys-tables?

It's a 'feature' of SQL Server. Trigger on sysobject doesn't work.

You can't trigger this process automatically when new object added. You can only create a SQL Executive task, that will check for new objects at certain intervals.
