BCP and Triggers

Hello All,
  The Scenario:  Two tables, A and B.  One trigger T, a row inserted into table A will get the trigger T to fire to automatically insert some values into B.  I have no trouble getting the trigger to fire when performing an SQL to insert something into table A.  The problem is with BCP.  Trigger never fired when I loaded data into table A via the BCP utility.  Is this something that Sybase support or am I out of luck?

Also, in Oracle, triggers can be fired after or before a transaction is taken place.  Can I do the same thing in Sybase and how?

Thanks.

In sybase when u do bcp triggers don't get fired.
In sybase there is no before or after trigger concept.

it is actually simple to achieve.

1. bcp in the data into a different table with same schema ( say XY)
2. then insert into the actual table
insert into maintable select * from XY

This will fire the triggers.

Thanks.

sunpatil answered both of my questions and amitpagarwal gave me an idea on how to get around the problem.  Both gave good and acceptable answers.  sunpatil gets the points since he gave the answers first.

Thanks folks.
