A timestamp column in SQL Server has nothing to do with date or time, this is more like a sequential number rather than a datetime value

You dont have to specify the value in the Timestamp column explicitly, it will be inserted/modified automatically with the insert/update operation

See,

I am trying to insert value at runtime thru trigger as below:

create trigger hist
on DBO.XXX_History
instead of delete
as
begin
INSERT INTO DBO.AUD_History SELECT d.DateRealisation from deleted d.
end

AUD_History.DateRealisation is of type (timestamp)
XXX_History.DateRealisation is of type (datetime)

Error is as:
Disallowed implicit conversion from data type datetime to data type timestamp, table 'Expert.dbo.AUD_History', column 'DateRealisation'. Use the CONVERT function to run this query.

I think you're going to have to change your data structure to change the data type of that field or add an additional field. From SQL Books Online:

"The SQL Server timestamp data type has nothing to do with times or dates. SQL Server timestamps are binary numbers that indicate the relative sequence in which data modifications took place in a database. The timestamp data type was originally implemented to support the SQL Server recovery algorithms."

"Never use timestamp columns in keys, especially primary keys, because the timestamp value changes every time the row is modified."

Why is AUD_History.DateRealisation of type timestamp?
