Hi Experts,

I have a table defined as follows:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[CallLog] (
      [CallID] [numeric](18, 0) IDENTITY (1, 1) NOT NULL ,
      [CallStatus] [nvarchar] (50) COLLATE Latin1_General_CI_AS NULL ,
      [StartDate] [datetime] NULL ,
      [StopDate] [datetime] NULL

The column [CallStatus] can contain one of the values ('Open', 'On-Hold', 'Re-Opened', 'Closed').

How do I create a TRIGGER which runs only when the [Callstatus] changes to 'Closed'? The TRIGGER must update the [StopDate] to the current system Date whenever the [CallStatus] changes to 'Closed'.

Note: The TRIGGER should run only when data is UPDATE, and note when it's INSERTED or DELETED.
