Many clients may import data into DB.
One of the client is Admin, and now he want to know everyday any data has been imported.

Is there any way to do it without adding extra table, just know the table change.

    Are we talking about adding records or update,add and delete?

    If you only add the number of records would be the clue.

    Why do you not want to add a table. The  best way would be to set up an audit table and triggers on your table on update add delete. to write to this audit. Then you know exactly what is happening

    1.Can I check the transaction logs through SQL statement.

    2. Just add record only. May you give any details of setup, trigger and write audit table.
