i need to create a trigger so that when one field is populated it copies that field to another one, e.g.

ive tried the below but to no use

CREATE trigger trgcostcentre
on dbo.tblcostcentre
for update
as
if update(fldcostcentre)
update q
set fldcostcentre_id = fldcostcentre
FROM tblcostcentre.fldcostcentre_id q
INNER JOIN INSERTED i
on i.fldcostcentre_id  = q.fldcostcentre_id
