How can I create a trigger to INSERT UNIQUE records (id and name for eg.) to Table1 from Table2 and Table3? Table structures:

Table1  
Id (varchar) PK  Name

Table2
.......  Id Name

Table3
........ Id Name

Are you sure you want a trigger ?
I think you should define a view instead of table 1, this should be the definition:

select id,name from table2
union
select id,name from table3

Union clause will remove duplicate rows if the same values are in both table2 and table3.

is it possible to call this view in specified time? What I am trying to do is fill unique records from two tables to one table in a specified time.

thanks

The view will behave like a table and you will always have in the view the actual/present data.
So the view is not actually storing data it will always pick the correct data from the tables.
Is this what you want?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

You have attached the code for creating the view.
You can bind the datagrid to it but it won't editable, it's just for displaying data.
CREATE VIEW [dbo].[View1]
AS
SELECT   id, name FROM         dbo.Table1
union 
SELECT   id, name FROM         dbo.Table2

GO
