hi experts. I have an sql table from which data is randomly deleted.  the application that I use to insert data into this table does not have any delete command on this table. I was using sql 2000 on server 2003, but now have changed to sql 2005 on server 2003, the problem still occurs. I have put in a trigger on the table which copies the deleted row to another table and surely, deleted records are being sent to this table. What could be causing these deletions. Any ideas?

In that trigger add the user and datetime for the deleted row. You might have a clue after analyze those records.

Setup a server-side profiler trace with that table name in the textdata filter.  Easier to do if you can find a time when records tend to get deleted.
