SQL Server 2008 STD - log changes to a specific table.

Note the version of SQL is 2008 Std which doesn't have auditing or Table Change tracking etc.

I want to log all changes to a specific table.

From what I can tell as we have Standard edition -  its either SQL Profiler or Extended Events?

Profiler has a high overhead...

How can I use extended events to log all changes to a table, everything I am reading makes me think its for error logging?


Any examples would be appreciated :D


thanks!!!

Are DDL or DML triggers an option? If yes, depending upon the type of change you want to track, you can write DDL triggers (for structural changes) or DML triggers (for data related changes).

Yep, typically you would use table trigger(s) for that.  Extended events is not the way to log row changes.
