you need the history table with the same fields than your original table + the fields you mentioned: who (user)/when (time)/how (insert/udpate/delete)

then, 1 (or 3) plain trigger (s) on the table
CREATE TRIGGER trg_audit_delete_biodata
 ON biodata
 FOR DELETE
AS
  INSERT INTO your_audit_table
   ( who, when, how, userid, NIN, ... etc )
  SELECT suser_name(), getdate(), 'DELETE', userid, NIN, ... etc
    FROM DELETED 
go 

CREATE TRIGGER trg_audit_update_biodata
 ON biodata
 FOR UPDATE
AS
  INSERT INTO your_audit_table
   ( who, when, how, userid, NIN, ... etc )
  SELECT suser_name(), getdate(), 'UPDATE', userid, NIN, ... etc
    FROM INSERTED 
go 
CREATE TRIGGER trg_audit_insert_biodata
 ON biodata
 FOR INSERT
AS
  INSERT INTO your_audit_table
   ( who, when, how, userid, NIN, ... etc )
  SELECT suser_name(), getdate(), 'INSERT', userid, NIN, ... etc
    FROM INSERTED 
go

are you sure you have field name "Data Verified" in your table? I don't think so or may be spell mistake or may be not surrounded with square brackets.

for other error, I would like to know what SQL Server version are you using and what is the compatability level of your database?
