No, this is directly from the transaction log. Try using DBCC LOG(DBName,Option) Option being -1,0,1,2 or 3(I think these are all the values available). The Option part is how detailed you want the output. Takes a while to work out the meanings of each part of the log, but if you want an easier alternative, get Log Explorer from

The meanings are explained in the header, if you can't understand it then you definately need Log Explorer as DBCC LOG() is an UNDOCUMENTED feature of SQL, which i'm sure you would have been told...
