Subject Re: [firebird-support] SQL Statement that fired trigger?
Author Svein Erling Tysvaer
The one thing Martijn didn't mention, is that you can also get the OLD
and NEW values in your triggers, so even though you cannot get the exact
statement, you can know exactly what has changed.

Moreover, you can have separate triggers for UPDATE, DELETE and INSERT
if you want to, it is only recently it has become possible to mix them.

You probably knew all this already, I just thought it was worth mentioning.
