Hi Rama,

The triggers will be fired on DML or DDL opeartions.
In case you want to execute something on 0800 hrs then I suggest to convert in procedure and do whatever you want to do using SQL Agent Job (in case MSSQL Server) .

Best Regards,

By calling your trigger at 08:00 AM.

Otherwise you have a conceptual problem.
