How do Insert records in TableB  based on a Batch insert of Records from TableA on a Trigger?

Posted on 2009-05-08

I'm somewhat new to the use of Triggers in MS SQL. My initial creation only gives me 1 new record in the second table(SMI_STATUS) , regardless of the number of records inserted into
the firts table that fires the trigger (TicketPoolHist).

I've looked at several examples on the web, realizing that I need to do a "set" approach, but I can't seem to put it together. Any suggestions?
Currrent Trigger , which only works on the last record in the Inserted table is shown below.
CREATE TRIGGER [STLog1] ON [dbo].[TicketPoolHist] 



declare @Datestamp as datetime,

@TableName as Char(20),

@TableUID as Integer,

@Status as Char(1)


@TableUID = Identity_Column

From Inserted

INSERT INTO smi_Status(DateStamp,TABLENAME,TABLEUID,STATUS) VALUES (Current_TimeStamp,'TicketPoolHist',@TableUID,1)
