I'm a MSSQL novice and I am trying to create a trigger that will copy data as it is inserted into the results table of one DB into a tblBReagleresult table in another DB. I have succeeded in copying the data, but I also want to insert the date and time that the record was updated also. Now I have the syntax listed below but it will modify the time on all records in that field. We are currently using MSSQL 7.0, here is the trigger I have.

CREATE TRIGGER [CopyResults] ON [dbo].[result]
FOR INSERT
AS
INSERT INTO [STOCKYARDS].[dbo].[tblBReagleresult]([ProdID], [Throughput], [OpNr], [ResultNr], [Val], [ValueID])
SELECT [ProdID], [Throughput], [OpNr], [ResultNr], [Val], [ValueID] FROM INSERTED
update [STOCKYARDS].[dbo].[tblBReagleresult]
set [transtime]=getdate()
