Trace a specific database using SQL Profiler

Our database server hosts multiple databases for various apps and I'd like to set up SQL Profiler to monitor a specific Database.  I do not know how to do this.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Create a new trace, click on the filter settings, select either the database name or database Id and enter the name /id of the database

Hope this gives you a brief idea on the usage of SQL Profiler using this document

In Figure D,you have to choose the Database Name which you like to Audit.
Pictures slightly differ in SQL Server 2005 as the site shows SQL Server 2000 snapshots.

In 2005, You can start profiler from SSMS --> Tools

Hope this helps

I don't have a filters tab - just one that says General and one that says Events Selection

Please find the snapshot attached for  SQL Server 2005 and steps to do this:

1. Click on Event Selection Tab in Trace Properties.
2. Check Show all Events and Show all Columns.
3. Now click on Column Filters.

Now you would be able to see DatabaseName and use that Filter accordingly.
