SELECT INTO creates a new table and requires that the table specified in the INTO does not exist, hence I struggle to see how you've defined a trigger on a table that won't exist until after the select into runs

GilaMonster is correct about the Select Into. But if you are trying to create an insert trigger after an insert into a table in most other ways there are numerous examples of how to build that trigger.

SOmething like the normal

CREATE TRIGGER myAfterInsertTrigger
ON mytable
