Currently we use VSS (MS Visual Source Safe) to track our database changes. Since VSS doesn't integrate with SQL, this is a painful error prone process. ;( Essentially developers have to remember the changes they make and update the VSS project. Is there any logging tool we can run on SQL to track whenever a procedure or table etc has been updated? This is a shot in the dark, but if anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

Currently all tables,UDF,sprocs etc are just saved as text files in the VSS database.

It is for uncontrolled environments and scripts the server/database and saves change history in sourcesafe. If you run it every night takes a few minutes every day (or when you remember to save/review changes.

But if you release everything from sourcesafe (to system test then production) you won't have this problem.

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
DTS can be used in a similar way.
