By Tom Brown,
I used this trigger instead of a trace to identify how and where a column was being truncated in an essential table. The error never happened on test systems, only ever on the production server.
The trigger shows how to log changes only when a certain column is updated.
The data logged enabled me to locate the source of the error, and once that was corrected, both trigger and temporary table can be dropped.
