I'm doing some work on a pre-existing web site with a SQL Server 2003 back end. For some reason, one of the tables in the database is having its data changed. Instead of normal text characters - which is what it should be - the data is being changed to special characters such as "$", ".", "\" or "__". This seems to be happening every four days or so. I haven't found any scripts or any scheduled automated updates to the database on the site. A solution I am trying is to make the table read-only. Is this a viable solution to my problem? Does anyone have an idea about why this is happening?

you can create a DML trigger on the table getting modifed to track the changes.
