Find Which Tables Have Triggers in SQL Server 2005/ 2008

If you want to quickly list down the tables having triggers in your database, here's how to do so:

USE [YourDB]


OBJECT_NAME(parent_id) AS TableName,

name AS TriggerName,

create_date AS CreationDate,

modify_date AS ModifyDate

FROM sys.triggers

I ran the query on the PUBS database and got the following results:

TableName TriggerName      CreationDate              ModifyDate

employee  employee_insupd 2009-01-23 14:16:35.680 2009-01-23 14:16:35.680
