‘%.*ls’ is an invalid event type.

Error Message:
Msg 1084, Level 15, State 1, Procedure, Line 2
‘%.*ls’ is an invalid event type.

Severity level:
15.

Description:
This error message appears when you specify an invalid event in a trigger.

Consequences:
The SQL statement cannot be parsed and further execution is stopped.

Resolution:
Errors of the Severity Level 15 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be executed this way. Valid events in a trigger are INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE.

Versions:
All versions of SQL Server.

Example(s):
IF OBJECT_ID (‘dbo.T’) IS NOT NULL
    DROP TABLE dbo.T
GO
CREATE TABLE dbo.T(c1 int);
GO
CREATE TRIGGER dbo.T_ins ON dbo.T
FOR inserted
AS
SELECT 1;

Remarks:
In the above example we try to create a trigger for the event ‘inserted’. This raises the error.
