DatabaseLog Table (AdventureWorks)

Records all data definition language (DDL) statements made to the database over time. The table is populated by a DDL trigger that fires every time a DDL statement is executed. For example, if a user created a new index or modified a table column, the occurrence of that event, including the exact Transact-SQL statement executed, is stored in the DatabaseLog table.

The DatabaseLog table is contained in the dbo schema.
