2 tables A& B both with two fields.

A : Field1 varchar ,Field2 varchar
B : Field3 varchar ,Field4 datetime

upon updating TableA a new entry must be made in TableB:

Field3 of TableB must passed the new updated value of field1 in TableA.

Field4 must be timestamped now.

Please provide me with detailed syntax, ie
try it out in ISQL before posting an answer

Thanks.
Bert.
