Trigger help - getting a column value of the just updated record

Last Modified: 2014-09-03
Can anyone help with this trigger

does the code look ok? and can you help with the commented out lines with proper t-sql

This is what is supposed to happen
if IMEI column updated
search another table for any records from this IMEI number
If none found, then insert some dummy data in this table

THis is what i have so far:
CREATE TRIGGER trig_InsertDummyData
ON Newtbl_DeviceMaster
   if update(nIMEINo) begin
	  --if exists (select top(1) from dataTable where Imei = @thatImeiNumberThatWasJustUpdated)
         -- Begin
	  -- insert into dataTable(imei) Values(@thatImeiNumberThatWasJustUpdated)

Open in new window

How do i get @thatImeiNumberThatWasJustUpdated value?
