The log is the product of our dily exports of the databae, but if you know vb, maybe this can help.

sending mail in vb wouldn't involve oracle at all.

just like sending mail from oracle doesn't involve vb.

if you don't want to do the trigger, simply pull that code out and put it in a stored procedure and then call that procedure from vb
