It doesn't be better to make a trigger for each operation (DELETE, INSERT and UPDATE)?

The key code is:

IF EXISTS(SELECT TOP 1 'x' FROM inserted)
    IF EXISTS(SELECT TOP 1 'x' FROM deleted)
        SET @mod = 'U'
    ELSE
        SET @mod = 'I'
ELSE
    SET @mod = 'D'

Hi Vasi04,

how about:

IF EXISTS(SELECT * FROM deleted) AND NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM inserted)
BEGIN
--rows have been deleted.
END

Cheers!
