Hello I need your help to implement a trigger that will fire only when a column (Approved) is updated and it will run a different sets of code depending on the updated Value (0 or 1).

CREATE TRIGGER [dbo].[ApproveTimesheet] 
   ON  [dbo].[TIMESHEET_STATUS] 
   AFTER UPDATE
AS 

If (UPDATE(Approved))
BEGIN
	-- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from
	-- interfering with SELECT statements.
	SET NOCOUNT ON;
	
	If (Approved) = True THEN
		-- Update if approved
		UPDATE dbo.TIMESHEET_STATUS
		SET DateApproved = GetDate()
		where RecordId = RecordId AND Approved = 1

		... do more stuff here

	Else
		-- Update if disapproved
		UPDATE dbo.TIMESHEET_STATUS
		SET DateApproved = NULL
		where RecordId = RecordId AND Approved = 0

		... do more stuff here

	End If

END
