Problem with trigger

I am using mysql 5.1

I have two tables that I am working with. I have a product table and a discount table.

When a product gets added, I use an after insert trigger to create a record in the discount table. Here is the trigger. I am using navicat to create the trigger and this is how it displays. It is firing After>Insert

insert into discount (product_id,amount,is_percent) values (New.product_id,New.product_price-New.discount_price,0);

This trigger works great. What I have to do after this is update the product table with a value from the newly added record in the discount table. Here is that trigger. This fires After>Insert and is where I receive an error. This trigger is in my discount table.

update product SET product_discount_id = NEW.discount_id where product_id = NEW.product_id

Should this work?

Firstly, remove ambiguity on the product_id column, then please post the error message you are getting.

i.e., use this code:
UPDATE product 
SET product.product_discount_id = NEW.discount_id
WHERE product.product_id = NEW.product_id
;
