This topic describes how to create a trace template from an existing trace while it is running by using SQL Server Profiler.
To derive a template from a running trace
If necessary, switch to the window that contains the trace.
On the File menu, point to Save As, and then click Trace Template.
Type a name or select one from the list. Click OK.
If you select an existing template file, you are asked if you want to overwrite the file. You can only select a user-defined template. Predefined system trace templates cannot be overwritten.
