SQL Server Express 2008- Determine which rows were changed added after operation

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to find all the changes made to a database after I do something in the UI.  I'm interested in seeing the affected rows.

What's the best way to do this?

Many thanks!

Add a timestamp column to your table.

"timestamp is a  data type that exposes automatically generated binary numbers, which are guaranteed to be unique within a database. timestamp is used typically as a mechanism for version-stamping table rows. The storage size is 8 bytes." see https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Aa260631(v=SQL.80).aspx

Hi,
You can create Update trigger on the table, to record any changes ever made to the table.
