SQL SERVER – 2005 – Last Ran Query – Recently Ran Query

How many times we have wondered what were the last few queries ran on SQL Server? Following quick script demonstrates last ran query along with the time it was executed on SQL Server 2005.

SELECT deqs.last_execution_time AS [Time], dest.TEXT AS [Query] FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats AS deqs
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(deqs.sql_handle) AS dest
ORDER BY deqs.last_execution_time DESC

Reference : Pinal Dave (https://blog.sqlauthority.com) , BOL – sys.dm_exec_query_stats, BOL – sys.dm_exec_sql_text

  • Hi

    One of my table column is updated randomly and the value got changed all of a sudden. But after sometime, it may work fine. The change is constantly happening on a specific column of a specific table. Is there any way to find out which query caused that update?

  • Dave,

    Thank you for the tip about the last ran queries. How ever, how can I view only USERS activity ?? not the system activity or the SQL Agent activity ?

    I know that SQL Server Profiler can do the job but I would like to know the code behind…

    Thanks !

  • Hello Pinal,

    I want to track store procedure and its executed time by trigger.
    When the store procedure is executed by application it should insert the store procedure name and its execution time in one table.

    Reply soon…
