Hello

I have a trigger that fires when data is inserted into one table.  The database is published for merge replication and when the data is updated at the subscriber, the trigger fires again. How can I stop the trigger firing when the replication takes place?

Thank you in advance

CREATE TRIGGER trigger_name
ON { table | view }
[ WITH ENCRYPTION ]
{
    { { FOR | AFTER | INSTEAD OF } { [ INSERT ] [ , ] [ UPDATE ] }
        [ WITH APPEND ]
        [ NOT FOR REPLICATION ]
        AS
        [ { IF UPDATE ( column )
            [ { AND | OR } UPDATE ( column ) ]
                [ ...n ]
        | IF ( COLUMNS_UPDATED ( ) { bitwise_operator } updated_bitmask )
                { comparison_operator } column_bitmask [ ...n ]
        } ]
        sql_statement [ ...n ]
    }
}



NOT FOR REPLICATION

Indicates that the trigger should not be executed when a replication process modifies the table involved in the trigger.

I think that make changes is not problem for you.
( Enterprise Manager ->Right button click on table-> All tasks -> Manage triggers -> select Trigger -> ADD 'NOT FOR REPLICATION' befor 'AS' statement-> Apply)

Hi

my current trigger now looks like this:

CREATE  trigger trgRegisteredContact
on dbo.tblContactPoint
for Insert NOT FOR REPLICATION
as
    declare @ID as uniqueidentifier
    --This selects pkCPID from the inserted table and assigns it to the variable  @ID
    select @id = pkCPID from inserted  
    insert into tblTopic (pkTPID, fkCPID,strTName, strDepartmentID, strOrigin, dtmCreated, dtmModified)
    values (Newid(), @id, 'Software','CS', 'Administrator', GetDate(),GetDate())
      
      update tblContactpoint
      set dtmCreated = Getdate(), dtmModified = Getdate()
      where pkCPID = @ID


However, unfortunately it has not solved the problem, any idea? Thanks

Hi
Problem solved, Thank you for your help, I will award points to your first response.  Although I thought I'd changed the trigger that was on the subscriber, it appears that it had reverted to it's previous state without the NOT FOR REPLICATION statement.  
Having amended it again it now works correctly.

Many Thanks
Debs :-)
