I'd like to write a trigger that will capture updates made to a certain column of a table, and place the old and new values into another table.

Cost_Table
Product:    Watch
Price:       200

If the price of the watch is changed to 300, a row should be inserted into Cost_Table_Updates as follows:
Product:   Watch
Old_Price: 200
New_Price: 300

Thanks!
