Getting data for edited values in update trigger in sql server

Hi ,
 
I am writing update trigger for tables in SQL server 2008 r2

i need to store values (Old value, new value ) in Log table.

How to get the old values  ?

CREATE TRIGGER trgAfterUpdate ON [dbo].[Employee_Test]
FOR UPDATE
AS
      declare @empid int;
      declare @empname varchar(100);
      declare @empsal decimal(10,2);
      declare @audit_action varchar(100);

      select @empid=i.Emp_ID from inserted i;      
      select @empname=i.Emp_Name from inserted i;      
      select @empsal=i.Emp_Sal from inserted i;      
      
      if update(Emp_Name)insert into insert into Emp_Audit
           (User_ID,System_Time,Affected_Table,Affected_Field,Old_Data,New_Data)
      values(@user_id,@InsertDate,'Emp','EMP_ID','',@empid);
      if update(Emp_Sal)
            insert into insert into Emp_Audit
           (User_ID,System_Time,Affected_Table,Affected_Field,Old_Data,New_Data)
      values(@user_id,@InsertDate,'Emp','EMP_sal','',@empsal);

      insert into insert into Emp_Audit
           (User_ID,System_Time,Affected_Table,Affected_Field,Old_Data,New_Data)
      values(@user_id,@InsertDate,'Emp','EMP_ID','',@empid);

      PRINT 'AFTER UPDATE Trigger fired.'
GO

The old values will be stored in the deleted table.

The TRIGGER as designed is fatally flawed.  A TRIGGER fires per statement not per row.  Therefore in your case if your UPDATE statement affects more than one row it will fail.

The trigger won't "fail", that is, it won't abend; it will just capture only one row's values instead of all of the changed rows.  [In SQL Server, there is no "FOR EACH ROW" trigger, not even as an option.]
