i have a trigger that pics up the value of the id field in one table and then has to create records into another table based on this,
note the value of the id field in table a determines different inserts into table b i.e.
if the value starts with w-1 then it needs to insert 2 records into table b

i.e  
insert into b (id,number,type)(select id,@number ,'hours' from inserted)
insert into b (id,number,type)(select id,@number,'meter' from inserted)

if the value starts with b-1 then it needs to insert 2 records into table b

insert into b (id,number,type)(select id,@number ,'moves' from inserted)
insert into b (id,number,type)(select id,@number,'miles' from inserted)

else if the id doesnt start with these values then it isnt required to perform any inserts into table b

note the @number is based on the following:

DECLARE @number int
SELECT @number =MAX(number)+1 FROM table b

how do i build a trigger to achieve this?

thats wrong ,i need multiple inserts ie if my id like w-1 then 2 inserts need to be made

insert into b (id,number,type)(select id,@number ,'hours' from inserted)
insert into b (id,number,type)(select id,@number,'meter' from inserted)

if the value starts with b-1 then it needs to insert 2 records into table b

insert into b (id,number,type)(select id,@number ,'moves' from inserted)
insert into b (id,number,type)(select id,@number,'miles' from inserted)

all help will do

That was just an example.  I expected you would use it as a template to build another set for next query.  Of course, it does assume that you've presented the entire problem, or it not at least that there are the same number of inserts for each id case.
