  • The error you posted is a SQL error. The message is quite obvious and it means that the query you're using has an OUTPUT clause specified to capture the return values and it seems table already have a trigger enabled on it. If trigger is already present you will not be able to use OUTPUT clause in queries to capture the details from INSERTED and DELETED internal tables during a data manipulation operation. This is exactly what the error says

    So you have two options

    1. Use query without return value logic ie OUTPUT clause

    2. Disable the trigger on the table before query execution and enable it back after
