SQL Server Profiler - Doesn't show me errors :(


I took me a long time to find out that Profiler doesn't tell me if there where any sql errors, it only logs the sql that somebody tries to execute.

How can I trace a database and see if somebody has any errors?

Thank you! :)

You don't see all the errors in SQL profiler but some based on your sql profiler configuration/filtering...

Check the following "Errors and Warnings Event Category" available in SQL profiler.

yes you can detect sql errors

Try the profiler event: "User Error Message".
