I have table Contacts_Holders.
I am calling one SP to delete records from this table.
the SP take two parameters @ContactID, @HolderID

I need to write a trigger for delete on this table that will insert a record in different and put @ContactID and @holderid in to this other table.

I need to know how can my trigger takes the values which I Pass from SP and insert them into an another table on Delete/

You can't access the parameters directly from the trigger. But presumably those values somehow relate to the row you are deleting - how do they relate?

inside the trigger, you have access to the virtual tables DELETED which contains the rows deleted by the statement that raised the trigger.

Is the trigger required to only copy values when the procedure does a delete or when any process does a delete?  Why can't you just make a regular on delete trigger like this:

create trigger my_trigger on table after delete as
declare @ContactID int;
declare @HolderID int;
select @ContactID = ContactID, @HolderID = HolderID from deleted;
insert into othertable (ContactID, HolderID) values (@ContactID, @HolderID);

Open in new window


This would move any delete, not just deletes from the procedure though.  If you have a requirement to only trap the ones from the procedure, why not build that into the procedure itself instead of a trigger?

note: the above will ONLY work correctly if a single line is deleted.
proper (and more efficient) code would be this:
create trigger my_trigger on table after delete 
as
insert into othertable (ContactID, HolderID) 
select ContactID, HolderID 
from Deleted
