I'm looking to have a records sent to a history table. I would like to have a trigger that works when i delete or update any attribute within my table.
When i DELETE a record, should i be pulling that from the temp (Inserted or Deleted table).
Should these be seperate Triggers one for Update and one for Delete?
I'm just wanting to understand these correctly.
Will this work?
ALTER TRIGGER [dbo].[Changes_Segment] 
ON  [dbo].[Segment]
FOR UPDATE, Delete 
AS 

IF UPDATE(L_F_ADD) 
OR UPDATE(L_T_ADD) 
OR UPDATE(R_T_ADD)
OR UPDATE(R_F_ADD) 
OR UPDATE(ROADJUR)
    INSERT INTO dbo.Segment_History
    SELECT * FROM inserted

Open in new window

Thanks

for your requirement you have to pull it form the deleted table

simple thumb rule

inserted table always holds the new data (i.e. the data that will be there after update / insert)
Deleted table always holds the old data (i.e. the data that will be deleted / updated).

I hope this helps.

Thanks

Pulling from 2 different tables should be done in 2 different Triggers correct?
As a general rule.
