A database I maintain has a central transaction table ( FTRANS)
I would like an second table FTRANS_IMAGE to maintain a historical view
of ftrans. So if records in FTRANS are altered we can trace the effect
of those changes in FTRANS_IMAGE.
I expect this has been done MANY times and I wonder if a general purpose
trigger exists or if not then can someone point me to an example set of
I would like to trace an action code "Edit" or "Delete" in FTRANS_IMAGE
in additional to the common fields.
thanks muchly
