How to: Modify a Trace Template (SQL Server Profiler)

This topic describes how to modify a trace template by using SQL Server Profiler.

To modify a trace template

  1. On the File menu, point to Templates, and then click Edit Template.

  2. In the Trace Template Properties dialog box, on the General tab, you can modify the server type and template name, or choose to use a default template for the server type.

  3. On the Events Selection tab, use the grid control to add or remove events and data columns from the trace file as follows.

    • To add an event, expand the appropriate event category in the Events column, and then select the event name.
    • When you add an event, all relevant data columns are included by default. To remove a data column for an event from a trace, clear the check box in the data column for the event.
    • To add filters, click the data column name and specify the filter criteria in the Edit Filter dialog box. You can also right-click the data column name, and click Edit Column Filter to launch the Edit Filter dialog box. Click OK to add the filter.
  4. Click Save, or click Save As to save the trace template under another name.
