I know in a trigger you can reference an updated value:

CREATE TRIGGER [Propagate Updates Within Groups of records] ON [dbo].[myTable ]
AFTER UPDATE
AS
BEGIN
           UPDATE dbo.myTable SET [myField] = (SELECT [myField] FROM INSERTED)
                WHERE a bunch of records meet some criteria
END

This grabs the incoming value for myField and uses it to propagate the update throughout all the records in the group.

If the incoming value for myField is in INSERTED, is the original value of myField still in place and how can I reference it?
