Update Trigger help

Hi Experts,

I need help with an UPDATE TRIGGER for MySql.

I have two mysql databases.
I want to update 2 columns in database 2 by a user_id when a date column in database 1 is updated.
I only want to do the updates if they are a specific product id.

Is what I have done below the best way to write an update trigger.
I get an "unknow table 'Database1.xxx_users_products_jn.' in fieldlist" error
Does this logic work?

Here is what I have done.
Please advise on how to make this work

Thanks

Matt


BEGIN
 If Database1.xxx_users_products_jn.product_id in (1,2,3,4,11,12,13,14,15,26,27,42,53) then
       UPDATE Database2.usrprofiles
        SET
              Database2.usrprofiles.Active = 1,
            Database2.usrprofiles.DisableDate = NEW.Database1.access_end_date
        WHERE
              Database2.usrprofiles.user_id = Database1.xxx_users_products_jn.user_id
            AND Database1.xxx_users_products_jn.access_end_date >= NOW()
            ;
 END if;
END

It looks like you've obscured the database and table names for this question.  Can you use phpMyAdmin or a similar tool to verify that Database1.xxx_users_products_jn actually exists?  The name is probably case-sensitive.

Figured out what i had to do. I removed all the database1.table_names and it worked.

Is this the best way of writing the trigger though. The logic
