Determine Last Access Of A Database Or Table

Dec 18, 2007

Does anybody know of a way to determine the last date/time a table has been accessed (query/update)?
I've done enough research to know that this isn't easy. However, perhaps somebody has figured out a way through some of the stats that SQL Server keeps to determine the last access of a table.
I have recently been put on a team that had no DBA and has a number of databases out there. They would like to determine which databases are inactive and get rid of them. I am a developer and haven't had much SQL Server Administration experience.
Any info will help greatly!

Hey there.
I must write a stored procedure to update a table and want to make sure the ID used in both Acceptance and Production will have the necessary access.  The ID will inherit it's access to the resource though a ROLE.
Wondering if there are queries out there that can traverse for example, the roles/id's that have access to it... Thx!

How To Determine Last LSN For Database

Feb 13, 2008

What is the most reliable way to determine the last LSN of a database? I've looked in sys.database_files to no avail. I've also looked in msdb.dbo.backupset which is accurate but only based on backups already performed not the current state of the database.

Need To Determine If Records Are Already In Database

Feb 21, 2001

Problem: I can add 4 items to a SQL 7.0 database but I need to redirect the user if all 4 items exist in the same Record elsewhere in the Database.

Clearly I need some kind of statement like "if category1 = var1 AND category2 = var 2 AND..." but don't know where to put it.


strSQL = "SELECT * FROM tblUserQuarter"

Set objRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
objRS.Open strSQL, objConn,adOpenStatic , adLockOptimistic

'Insert choices from report.asp into tblUserQuarter
objRS("cboFY") = Request.Form("cboFY")
objRS("Quarter") = Request.Form("Quarter")
objRS("ID") = Request.Form("ID")
objRS("Report") = Request.Form("Report")

Set objRS = Nothing
set objConn = Nothing

Determine Date Database Was Last Used ?

Jun 15, 2006

Hi There

I am trying to establish the date a database was last used.

At first i checked out sp_helpfile and sysfiles to see if there was a date last modified, i also tried using xp_cmdshell to check the date on the actual .mdf or .ldf on the o/s but if the file has not grown the date will be the create date.

I need to establish the date a database was last used, either the last time someone logged into it or the last time any sort of command was run against the database, i cannot use sysprocesses as there are no connections to the database, so i need to determine the last time there actually were any processes run against this database.

And i need to use tsql, checking audit logs etc is not viable, can anyone help ?

Determine Row Of Data In A Table Through SSIS

Jun 13, 2013

I have a requirement based on 2 parts to determine a row of data in a table through SSIS :

a. Work out the LEG_SEQ_NBR of the VESSEL, VOYAGE and LEG already stored in table1.

To do this join table1 and join table2 through BL_ID column.

b. Work out the 2ndVESSEL, 2ndVOYAGE and 2ndLEG.

Once we have identified the LEG_SEQ_NBR of the VESSEL,VOYAGE, LEG already stored in table1 we need to add '1' to this value and then find that LEQ_SEQ_NBR in table2.

The DDL of table1 and table2 along with the test data are as below:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[table1](
[BL_ID] [decimal](10, 0) NOT NULL,
[VESSEL] [nvarchar](10) NULL,
[VOYAGE] [nvarchar](12) NULL,
[LEG] [nchar](3) NULL,

[Code] ....

For Example:

BLNO = 21 and BL_ID = 1

Current Vessel/Voyage/Leg in table1 = CEUR 032E E

LEG_SEQ_NBR of this Vessel/Voyage/Leg in table1 = '1'

Therefore if we add '1' to this value we'd be looking for LEG_SEQ_NBR '2' as the 2ndVESSEL,2ndVOYAGE,2ndLEG.

In this case that would = MARB 794S S

How this can be worked out through an SSIS job ?

Good Morning

Is There anyway to determine the table you are referencing in a trigger's inserted / deleted tables?

i.e would this be possible
print @Table_Name + " was Updated"

Where @Table_Name is the table on which the trigger is created

(bad example I know but you get the idea)

Any input will be appreciated.

How To Determine Table And Column Names In A Trigger?

May 5, 2008

Hi all,

I'm new to this whole trigger 'thing', so forgive me if this question has been asked and answered a few times already.

I'm in the process of writing a trigger that will send an e-mail to an application admin when any table within a given database is altered (IE, a column is added or deleted). I can get the e-mail to fire off when that happens without any issue, but I'd like to be able to let the admin know which table was tweaked and what new column was added.

Is this a relatively easy thing to do and I'm just not finding the right built-in variable name, or does something more need to be done?

SQL Server 2014 :: Possible To Determine Dataflow Within A Database?

May 14, 2015

Is it possible to determine the data flow within a database? e.g. I start by adding/inserting a record in MainTable1, then through a trigger SubTable1, SubTable2 have records inserted into, SubTable3 has a record updated into, then a StoredProcedure1 is run which updates first SubTable4, then a StoredProcedure2 is run which adds a record in SubTable5. So by simply adding a record in MainTable1, I affect 5 other tables.

Imagine a more complex process than this one now (which I'm currently facing and I want to win time and precision; I will still investigate it myself (if I will find an answer first - I will post it here)) Is there a way I could "extract" this flow by using T-SQL?
