I am a database developer working with SQL Server and Oracle8i. My focus is on data warehousing, reporting and analysis. The tools I use are Java, Stored Procedures, Visual Basic and commercial applications such as Informatica. I am currently working at an Application Service Provider company in Silicon Valley.

However, in some cases we do not want to destroy the old data with an update statement. Instead we want to maintain history up to a certain number of versions. This article presents a method for doing so.
