    Hi,
    is it possible to raise an alert and send an email to an operator, when some value is inserted in a table? I don't want to raise an error here.
    Simply send an alert mail having a custom message whenever a new row is inserted.

    You could possibly create a trigger on INSERT to dump a row into a separate table and a job checking regularly that table and send a mail when new rows are inserted.

    Hi Frank,
    I think that would waist server resources, it will just be a ( polling type method), is there some other way around?
