Trigger vanished from enterprise studio but still running in background

I recently created a trigger to pull some information from one table into another once certain fields were updated.

Once i was happy that it was working fine i left it alone and it has been working since without any problems.

I now need to modify the code slightly but i cannot find it through management studio; i have even tried running the following SQL on the server and it is not being found.

select object_name(id), object_name(deltrig),
object_name(instrig), object_name(updtrig)
from sysobjects
where xtype ='U'
(deltrig > 0 or instrig > 0 or updtrig > 0)

The wierd thing is that it is obviously still running because records are benig added to the table when updates take place.

Does anyone have any ideas what may be causing this?

you must be looking in the wrong database (with the query you mention) ...

No i am definately looking in the right database and on the right server; at first i simply assumed that the trigger had been deleted and so began re-creating it but it is definately still working in the background.

SEe if this returns anything:

select object_name(parent_id), * From sys.triggers
where object_name(parent_id) = 'yourtablename'

Thanks for your suggestion but this still does not return details of the trigger.

Then it probably doesn't exist....try one more thing:

use yourdatabasename

select object_id('triggername','tr')

does this return a numeric value?
