Change Tracking tables (Transact-SQL)

Applies to: SQL Server

This allows for quick and simple detection of changed data without the need for expensive and complex custom solutions traditionally involving a combination of triggers, timestamp columns, new tables to store tracking information, and cleanup processes.
