SQL Table

phman1275 asked
Last Modified: 2019-11-18
Hi, I need to create a SQL Table "Employees" table with the following fields:

ID, Name, Hiredate, Seniority

123, Johm, 11/8/1984, ????

For the Seniority field: if the current date - hiredate < 1 then 'Newbie'

My question is, should I put the seniority field as a calculation field? Or should I use the trigger to determine the employee is 'Newbie', 'Junior', or 'Senior'?

I have no clue how to either use the calculation to calculate the Seniority or use the trigger to do that.. Please help...
