I need a trigger that will update a table with values inserted into another table.

Say an insert is done to table "A".  This table has some data columns and a FK column to table "B".   Upon insert, I want to update table "B" using the FK in a WHERE clause and setting 3 other data columns, all of which exist in both tables.

AFTER INSERT
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON
UPDATE B
SET col1 = i.col1,
       col2 = i.col2,
       col3 = i.col3
FROM inserted i
INNER JOIN B ON
    B.B_key = i.B_key
GO

I provided a working example of how to use the inserted table in a trigger to join to and update a different table.  I believe that had to be of some value in coding such a trigger.
