What version of SQL Server?  

Assuming SQL2K or up, use an INSTEAD OF INSERT Trigger (look in BoL for information on this type of trigger).  Substitute the data you need for the data you get.

You could use an AFTER UPDATE trigger.

I think it is an alternative solution to consider because an INSTEAD OF trigger has wide ranging maintenance issues: ie when a new field is added the INSTEAD OF trigger must allways be modified.
Here is my example:
I want to blank out a Solictor and PartyType fields when a Guardian field has been assigned .  (see code snippet)
Note : I have recursive triggers Disabled
Cheers

ALTER TRIGGER [dbo].[trg_usrChildren_Update]

   ON  [dbo].[Usr_Children] 

   AFTER UPDATE

AS 

BEGIN

	-- If Guardian set - blank out Solictor and PartyType

	UPDATE usr_Children

	SET Solicitor = NULL, PartyType = NULL

	FROM usr_Children uc INNER JOIN Inserted i ON uc.ID = i.ID

	WHERE RTRIM(ISNULL(i.GuardianAdLitem,'')) <> ''

END

Additional note :
Just to explain that the same above method can be applied to an AFTER INSERT, as more relevent to your initial question.
Cheers
Brigzy

ALTER TRIGGER [dbo].[trg_usrChildren_AfterInsert]

   ON  [dbo].[Usr_Children] 

   AFTER INSERT

AS 

BEGIN

	-- If Guardian set - blank out Solictor and PartyType

	UPDATE usr_Children

	SET Solicitor = NULL, PartyType = NULL

	FROM usr_Children uc INNER JOIN Inserted i ON uc.ID = i.ID

	WHERE RTRIM(ISNULL(i.GuardianAdLitem,'')) <> ''

END
