I need a trigger to do the following:

when deletionstatecode is set to 2 in table 'aaa', update statecode value to 1 in table 'bbb' where aaa.activityid = bbb.phonecallid
AAA

aaaid   deletionstatecode    activityid



--------------------------------------

BBB

bbbid   phonecallid   statecode

CREATE TRIGGER aaa_trigger_1
ON aaa
AFTER UPDATE
AS
IF @@ROWCOUNT = 0
    RETURN
IF NOT UPDATE(deletionstatecode)
    RETURN
UPDATE bbb
SET bbb.statecode = 1
FROM bbb
INNER JOIN inserted i ON i.activityid = b.phonecallid
INNER JOIN deleted d ON i.activityid = d.activityid
WHERE i.deletionstatecode = 2
  AND (i.deletionstatecode <> d.deletionstatecode OR d.deletionstatecode IS NULL)

Do it in a stored procedure, not a trigger. Even better, consider changing the design so that there isn't a dependency between columns in two base tables. Maybe you could derive the same information in a view or query instead.

A trigger is safer than a stored proc.  There is no guarantee that a stored proc will be used for all UPDATEs (and/or INSERTs).

Scott, on your first inner join, I see alias b on phonecallid - but where is this defined?

I.e.:

INNER JOIN inserted i ON i.activityid = bbb.phonecallid
