How to create a log table of all deleted records Sql Server 2008?

I am having SalesAccount Table and I have a job that calls the storedprocedure who deletes old records later than 3 years.  Table retains 3 year data. Jobs runs every day. I want to create a log table which stores all the records who are deleted successfully and the date last deleted.

SalesAccount Table:
      [ID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
      [DateTimeStamp] [smalldatetime] NULL,
      [BankerInfo] [varchar](100) NULL,
      [Notes] [varchar](250) NULL

stored procedure:
delete from SalesAccount
where ID in
(
      select ID      from SalesAccount
      where DateTimeStamp <= (DATEADD(YEAR , -3 , GETDATE()))
)


Question: how to create a log table which contains the information:
id, details(comma delimited list of all records that are deleted), count of records that are deleted, loggedon(date of deletion). Insert this information in log table after job runs to delete data.

thanks

Use the OUTPUT clause; for example:

delete from SalesAccount
output deleted.ID, deleted.DateTimeStamp, ... into SalesAccountLog ( ID, DateTimeStamp, ... )
 where ID in
 (
       select ID      from SalesAccount
       where DateTimeStamp <= (DATEADD(YEAR , -3 , GETDATE()))
 )

What I'd do in your case is:

1) A trigger on your SalesAccount.
This trigger should be FOR DELETE.
It will copy all deleted rows into SalesAccount_log table (with the same structure + 1 additional column "Deleted date").
Trigger would look like:

CREATE TRIGGER logdeleted ON SalesAccount FOR DELETE AS
INSERT INTO SalesAccount_log SELECT [ID], [DateTimeStamp], [BankerInfo], [Notes], DATEADD(dd, 0, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, GETDATE())) FROM deleted

Open in new window


Then you can build a view on top of a SalesAccount_log table to present the data in the format you want
