Using sql server express

Lets assume that I have a table with a trigger for insert, and I want to insert 50 records into table X one by one. Would the trigger fire every time that a record is inserted into table X, that is 50 times? Would this behavior apply when I use a program to insert the records or would the trigger wait until the 50 records are inserted and then fired?

Yes it will fire 50 times and it will be applied when you use a program too for inserting.

Answer for both you question is YES. Triggers are like rules applied on a table, so doesnt matter you do it from Query analyser or from any other program. It gets triggered when a records is inserted into a table.
