Can someone show me a sample of a trigger that at the time of an insert copies the value in field1 to field2 and also on an edit prevents field2 from being altered?

Lets assume both fields are INT


Thanks!

Thanks!

I have been working in Oracle for a while now and been neglecting my SQL Server skills (which weren't all that strong to start with) so I was having trouble getting started.

This gave me what I needed now on to making it the full complexity I needed.

Great answers!
