SQL update trigger based on value

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

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?

Sorry, should be bbb.

I.e.:

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