I have scheduled a job that has a delete strategy based on a time-stamp column. It is working fine.

But, I would like to know how many rows were affected/deleted in a single run. Is it possible to trace??

I see the duration was 00:00:00 but it doesn't mean that no rows were affected...

As per my knowledge by default we don't have that option, but you can use @@ROWCOUNT and insert the results to a new table, this method is just like logging.

E.g

DECLARE @Count INT

DELETE FROM myTable Where MyColumn>getdate()

SET @count = @@ROWCOUNT

-- Insert into log table
INSERT INTO LogMyTableDelete(JobRunTime, @count)
SELECT  GETDATE(),@Count

Sorry, There is no way unless you have any audit or dml trigger on the tale.
