Disable triggers in SQL Server 2000

Hi all.

How can I temporarily disable all triggers in a server or connection-wide basis? Is there any system configuration option?

Best regards,
Cesar.

Your final script may look like this:

for disable:
select  'alter table '+s2.name+' disable trigger '+s1.name from sysobjects s1,
(select id, name from sysobjects where type='U') s2
where s1.parent_obj=s2.id and s1.type='TR'

for enable:
select  'alter table '+s2.name+' enable trigger '+s1.name from sysobjects s1,
(select id, name from sysobjects where type='U') s2
where s1.parent_obj=s2.id and s1.type='TR'

After you see the result of the upper queries, you can copy/past the results run them.

You can disable trigger for specified table with statement.

alter table my_table disable trigger all
or
alter table my_table disable trigger my_trigger

You can get trigger list with
select  s1.name TriggerName, s2.name TableName f
rom sysobjects s1,
(select id, name from atadb..sysobjects where type='U') s2
where s1.parent_obj=s2.id

So you can construct automatic script for disable/enable triggers.

oopps... the second statement shall be
select  s1.name TriggerName, s2.name TableName f
rom sysobjects s1,
(select id, name from atadb..sysobjects where type='U') s2
where s1.parent_obj=s2.id and s1.type='TR'

Thanks, ibro.

Is there any system-wide option instead of a per-table setting? If none appears, I'll give you the points.

99.9 % no. I checked the online documents and I couldn't find any option to do this.

Hi
      There is no server side option to disable or enabling the triggers.Below  code will disable all the triggers will meet ur requirements

Create Procedure Sp_EnableTriggers as

     Declare @strTableName  Varchar(255)
     Declare @StrSQL  varchar(255)

     DECLARE EnableTrigger   CURSOR FOR
     Select  object_name(parent_obj)  from  sysobjects  where type='tr'
     OPEN EnableTrigger
     FETCH NEXT FROM EnableTrigger  INTO @strTableName
        WHILE (@@fetch_status <> -1)
         BEGIN
        Select @strSQL='Alter Table ' +@strTableName + ' Enable Trigger all'
        EXEC (@strSQL)
        FETCH NEXT FROM EnableTrigger  INTO @strTablename
           CONTINUE
      END
     DEALLOCATE  EnableTrigger
