Can someone please throw more light on this statement-
DML statement cannot have any enabled triggers if the statement contains an OUTPUT clause without INTO clause

Which part of the statement do you not understand?

Hi Hugo,
I am not getting by the statement part -
DML statement cannot have any enabled triggers..............

Ah, now I see the confusion. That looks as if a few words were cut off at the start (triggers are created for tables and views, not for statements. so I suspect that this sentence should have started with "The target of the DML statement ...
Or we can go with the explanation in Books Online:
"If the OUTPUT clause is specified without also specifying the INTO keyword, the target of the DML operation cannot have any enabled trigger defined on it for the given DML action".

In other words - if the statement causes a trigger to fire, it should have either no OUTPUT clause or an OUTPUT clause with an INTO keyword. Using the OUTPUT clause without INTO (so that the results of the OUTPUT specification go to the client) is not allowed when a trigger fires.

Thanks a lot Hugo.....

Great Question and clean code.
Your explanation is very brief but understandable considering the behavior of Triggers. Keep it Super Simple! ;-)

Thanks for the question Pramod. I had never considered how output would work with triggers.

The question is WHY?
Technically, I do not see the connection or the hindrance of TRIGGER -> OUTPUT -> INTO.

<speculation>

OUTPUT without INTO sends data to the client.
A trigger might also send output to the client.

Maybe there were some test cases where the two outputs somehow interfered, and the team decided that fixing it would take too much resources???
