Ok, been scratching my head for hours over this, can anyone see what is wrong?

Declare @TableA as Table(TravID Int IDENTITY(6451,1), TravDetails varchar(200),ReqID Int)
Declare @loopCount Int
SET @loopCount = 0
WHILE (@loopCount <=1)
BEGIN
Insert into @TableA(TravDetails,ReqID)
values(NewID(),41)
SET @loopCount = @loopCount + 1
END
select * from @TableA

Declare @OldNewIDs as Table(Old_ID Int, New_ID Int)

MERGE @TableA
USING (Select
TravID
,TravDetails
from @TableA
where ReqID = 41) d
on 0 = 1
WHEN NOT MATCHED
THEN INSERT(
TravID
,TravDetails
)
values(TravID,TravDetails)
OUTPUT d.TravID Old_ID,Inserted.TravID New_ID
INTO @OldNewIDs;

Your merge is failing with error on IDENTITY TableA - try code below and I advice you not use MERGE on @tableS...

create table #TableA (TravID Int IDENTITY(6451,1), TravDetails varchar(200),ReqID Int);

Declare @loopCount Int
SET @loopCount = 0
WHILE (@loopCount <=1)
BEGIN
Insert into #TableA(TravDetails,ReqID)
values(NewID(),41)
SET @loopCount = @loopCount + 1
END;

select * from #TableA;


CREATE TABLE #TableB (Old_ID Int, New_ID Int);

MERGE #TableA
USING (Select
TravID
,TravDetails
from #TableA
where ReqID = 41) d
on 0 = 1
WHEN NOT MATCHED
THEN INSERT(
TravID
,TravDetails
)
values(TravID,TravDetails)
OUTPUT d.TravID Old_ID,Inserted.TravID New_ID
INTO #TableB;

since you have 0=1 for your condition which is always false, why do you use a Merge statement instead of a plain old Insert?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you need to keep the "mapping" between the two OLD/NEW values why not add a new linking table where you can save these values from a INSERT/UPDATE trigger?

The problem is, a trigger will run every time I insert and I only want it to run when the procedure is run.
