    Unanswered: Logging table activity

    Hi peeps,

    We have a great big database (90gb) which has been populated (monopolised) by our finance team, and its full of tables that probably aren't being used at all. But know knows whats being used and what isn't or they don't have the time to go through it with me.

    So I have decided to implement a procedure that logs table activity on this database, and if for example a table isn't used for a month then it will be archived off and zipped up.

    I have a few ideas in my head how I can acheive this, but I am looking for some opinions and ideas from you guys?

    Thanks in advance

    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    Triggers won't do much for reporting

    I'd say you need to use Profiler

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.
