How to Script Only the triggers in a SQL 2008 database?

I found this script to script just the triggers from a sql 2008 database: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/scripts/Maintenance+and+Management/30222/. Is that the only way to do it? Did MS really not give you a way to do it from SSMS without including the table definitions as well? I can't believe that since you would have to delete a table's data just to change how its triggers work.

Hopefully, there's a way to do this from SSMS. Otherwise, I'll see if my copy of ApexSQL will do the trick.

Thanks in advance.

No way through SSMS. Check with your APEXSQL which will help you achieve this by generating a Documentation; you can try SQLDoc from Redgate.Com as well, all are great SQL tools.

Hi Author,

SSMS is not provide any tool.but you can do achieve via query.



SELECT tl.name [Table Name],TR.Name [Trigger Name] ,EV.Type_Desc [Trigger Event],
c1.text
from sys.TRIGGERS tr
inner join sys.trigger_events ev on tr.object_id=ev.object_id
inner join SYS.OBJECTS tl on tl.object_id=tr.parent_id
INNER JOIN syscomments C1 ON tr.object_id=c1.id
order by tl.name
