I'm trying to determine the correct table and column to check the data a contact was added to the civicrm-contact table. What is the best method for doing this?
You can use
date_created on the
Check the table civicrm_log. The column entity_table will contain civicrm_contact and the column entity_id the id of the contact you are looking for. Does that help? If you want more specific information you need to explain what you are trying to do :-)
