Find who deleted a record with Transaction Log

How can I use the transaction log to find who deleted a record from a database?  And how far back into the transaction log can I look?

Not without using a third party tool such as Lumigent and even then doubtful.

hi pmle,

there's no out-of-the-box way... however you can create a trigger that fires on row deletion, and stores on a log, the user who deleted the row.

Wouldn't show you the previous history....

Like acperkins stated above, you can buy a thirdparty package (logexporer http://www.lumigent.com).  As long as you haven't truncated your log file, the information would still be available (you could even roll the transaction back).
