    Default Valid Trigger??

    Hello All,

    Is this a valid trigger? Is "Updated" an actual table and
    can I use it to update tables in other databases? Thanks
    in advance for your kind help.

    create trigger trans on contact2
    for update as
    IF EXISTS ( SELECT * FROM Updated WHERE ugpstatus like '%
    closed%')
    BEGIN
    UPDATE testprospect.contact2 SET ul_matdt = getdate(),
    ul_amoedt = getdate()
    WHERE testprospect.contact2.company = 'test'
    END

    The tables accessible via a trigger are "inserted" and "deleted". In an
    update scenario, the inserted and deleted tables maintain the "after" and
    "before" states, respectively. You can use both the inserted and deleted
    table as you could any other temporary table.

    There is no 'Updated' table. However you can access 'Inserted' and 'Deleted'
    virtual tables from within your trigger. See "Using the inserted and deleted
    Tables" and other related topics in SQL Server Books Online.
