Hi There!

I need to get a record of what has changed in a SQL DB between two steps in an application. I don't have a lot of experience with SQL so I am hoping this is reasonably straightforward thing to do.

Thanks very much in advance. There are about 200 tables, most of which are small.

freitasm: Or perhaps this SQL Server Change Tracking on Table which has some examples and queries showing how to track it.


I don't think this would work for me, since it requires tables to be specifically tracked individually. 

I was kind of hoping for a snapshot and compare solution.

There are compare products around, but I don't know any that are free. Check Idera and RedGate for this kind of software.

is this a one-off debugging sort of thing, or are you looking to log changes and do something with them?

If its a debugging sort of thing, use SQL Profiler, point it at a sql server and tell it to capture queries and stored procedures. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms181091.aspx
