How would I create a trigger that will copy the content of one record in a Table to a different table

I want the trigger to fire only if the field named complete is = true.

But I only want it to copy it once not every time someone completes the form.  This is because the data in the 2ed, table my get edited, and I don’t want the info over written every time another person marks a form complete.(true)

Is there a sample of how I would do this?

I’m using SQL server 2005.

Thanks for any help!

Are you updating the complete form only once or do you do the update everytime if someone completes the same form.
If the complete field is updated only once then you can write a trigger like
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO

ALTER TRIGGER [dbo].[trg_ins_Table2]
   ON  [dbo].[Table1]
   AFTER UPDATE
AS
BEGIN
      -- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from
      -- interfering with SELECT statements.

          -- Insert statements for trigger here
            
            if update(LastLogin)

          BEGIN
                                                                              INSERT INTO [Table2]
               ([ID]
               ,[Field2]
               ,[Field3]
            SELECT [Table1]
              ,[ID]
              ,[Field1]
              ,[Field2]
              , [Field3]                                                  
              FROM inserted
                                                            
          END

END

assuming there is a link between table2 and table1
CREATE TRIGGER dbo.triggername
ON dbo.tablename
AFTER UPDATE, INSERT
AS
BEGIN
  INSERT INTO table2
  SELECT F1, F2, F3 FROM INSERTED I
    LEFT JOIN table2 T on T.ID = I.ID
  WHERE I.COMPLETED = 1   -- fire only if the field named complete is = true.
    AND T.ID IS NULL      -- don't want the info over written 
END
