Dynamics GP - SQL time stamp

Is there a time stamp that is saved somewhere in a SQL table that would tell me the data a Microsoft Dynamics GP Sales Order was entered into the system?  I know there is a document date on the sales order, but that can be changed.  I need to know the date the order was actually entered in the software.

Thank you, that does work for the header.  Anyway to do this for the line items on the order?

In 2010 (and I believe in 10.0 as well, I cannot check right this minute) there is a time stamp in the SOP10200 table called DEX_ROW_TS.  What I am not certain of is whether that is the create date or the modify date, I suspect it is the latter.  But that is the best you can get.  :-(  The only other option, if you really need this, is to create your own trigger and custom table to track the create date.

That is what i thought.  The DEX_ROW_TS tracks the date and time the record was modified.

Do you have any sample code to create the trigger and custom table?

Sorry, that's a question for someone else, I don't do SQL coding of that nature.

If you are looking to track that detailed information at the transaction level, you might consider Activity Tracking and Audit Trails, or perhaps even using the eConnect Requester tool to capture changes and additions to the eConnect_Out table (which uses triggers).  The first two have the benefit of being within GP and having some UI.  The last option only writes to the table and you will need to monitor and clear the table occasionally via SQL Management Studio.

I would NOT recommend writing your own triggers to log GP activity.  It is much more complex than it would seem. (been there, done that, several times)
