I tried to insert values into a table in linked server after insert the values in a table in sql 2000 by using triggers.

CREATE TRIGGER trig_name ON [dbo].[tablename]
AFTER  INSERT
AS
BEGIN
DECLARE @staff_id VARCHAR(100)
DECLARE @weeknumber (100)
DECLARE @staff_id VARCHAR(100)
SELECT @staff_id= (SELECT staff_id FROM  Inserted)
SELECT @weeknumber = (SELECT weeknumber FROM  Inserted)
INSERT INTO  [TEST].[tbl_testexpense](staff_id,week_number) VALUES('@staff_id','@weeknumbe'r)
END

when using a linked server you have to specify the full table name:

linked_server_name.database_name.schema.table_name

I specified the full table name  and execute ,Then i get the following error.
Access to the remote server is denied because no login-mapping exists.

well,
you need to solve this issue... :-)
you need to create at the remote server the same login that you are using in your local server
are you using windows authentication or sql authentication?

SQL EXPRESS 2005 will not allow the creation of the same username and password as in SQL 2000.
