Trying to reduce expensive developer time on our DotNetNuke website. I don't think I need to go in to the backstory so I will simply ask - is there a way I can set up an alert (email, preferably) so that I am notified whenever anything is written to a specific SQL Server database table?

Yes. Use a trigger on INSERT or UPDATE that sends a mail to an operator using SQL's built in mail system.

I set up an email account in SQL Server Database Mail and sent a successful test email, but I need a little more direction on building the alert, as this is new to me.

Database: ABC
Table: sp_ABC_DB_OnlineFormsConfirm

Actually I am almost there. The below was successfully tested, but is there a way that in the email generated I can insert the unique ConfirmationCode that is captured so the alerted person knows what exactly to follow up on?

CREATE TRIGGER SendEmail
ON [ABC].[dbo].[ABC_DB_OnlineFormsConfirm]
AFTER INSERT
AS
exec msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail @profile_name = 'Gmail',
            @recipients = 'ABC@ABC-inc.com',
            @subject='An ABC Online App Has Been Completed',
            @body=''

You should be able to add any data to the mail. Even the single field values.
