Track Field Change SQL 2008
Posted on 2014-08-12
This one should be easy. I've done a fair bit of dabbling in SQL with standard statements (select, insert...), views, and even a stored proc or 2, but now I need a bit more.
What I need is to watch a field in a table, any time that changes write an insert into another table with that effective date.
Our front office system doesn't track a Vehicle's cost center effective date, so I thought I could use a trigger to do it myself. The destination table is stupid simple 2 fields, Unit and a datetime stamp. I just have never done this before and don't know where to start. I find database triggers under Programmability in Management studio, but when I right click I don't get an option for new.
We are on SQL 2005.
