db2 question

Hai all,

We are using DB2 database as our backend database. In this database i have a table that contains three columns.
First column is name of type varchar,
Second column is phnumber of type varchar,
Third Column is ctime of type timestamp.
With this table i want to insert persons name and phone number through the program which i am using and the third field has to be updated with the current time stamp automatically. I know to insert first two columns.I know it is possible with TRIGGERS.but i dont know how to use triggers.i am very new to TRIGGERS.
Please help me out with this regard.

CREATE TRIGGER TriggerName AFTER insert ON yourTable REFERENCING OLD AS inserted FOR
EACH ROW MODE DB2SQL  BEGIN ATOMIC UPDATE yourTable SET ctime = CURRENT TIMESTAMP where name = inserted.name; END

For general syntax of triggers show in IBM-DB2-helpsystem
