Thanks in advance for any help with this!

I have a trigger that is successfully writing data to two different tables: tblTransactions & tblBulkPurchases... on the first run of an insert into tblTransactions I get a beautiful creation of the same in tblBulkPurchases... however on the second run of another insert into tblTransactions I get TWO identical records created in the tblBulkPurchases table... NOT GOOD! Is there a way of nesting or some other method to keep this from happening?

USE [TrackIT]
GO
CREATE TRIGGER [dbo].[trPopulateBulkPurchases]
ON [dbo].[tblTransactions]
AFTER INSERT
AS
BEGIN
INSERT INTO tblBulkPurchases
(tblBulkPurchases.PO_Number,
tblBulkPurchases.Buyer_Initial,
tblBulkPurchases.Quantity,
tblBulkPurchases.Transaction_Date,
tblBulkPurchases.Transaction_Type)
SELECT
tblTransactions.PO_Number,
tblTransactions.Buyer_Initial,
tblTransactions.Quantity,
tblTransactions.Transaction_Date,
tblTransactions.Transaction_Type
FROM tblTransactions
WHERE Transaction_Type = 'Bulk Purchase'
END
GO

Please will you post DDL for the two tables, including any primary key or unique constraints. Please also give an example of an INSERT statement.

Are you sure that after every insert into one table, you want to copy everything into the other table, and not just the rows you have inserted?

the trigger is using the base table, isntead of just the new rows that exist in the special virtual tables INSERTED AND DELETED

this will insert just the new rows:

CREATE TRIGGER [dbo].[trPopulateBulkPurchases]
ON [dbo].[tblTransactions]
AFTER INSERT
AS
BEGIN
INSERT INTO tblBulkPurchases
(tblBulkPurchases.PO_Number,
tblBulkPurchases.Buyer_Initial,
tblBulkPurchases.Quantity,
tblBulkPurchases.Transaction_Date,
tblBulkPurchases.Transaction_Type)
SELECT
INSERTED.PO_Number,
INSERTED.Buyer_Initial,
INSERTED.Quantity,
INSERTED.Transaction_Date,
INSERTED.Transaction_Type
FROM INSERTED
WHERE INSERTED.Transaction_Type = 'Bulk Purchase'
END
GO

I'm getting the following error for each field of the tblTransactions when I try to execute the T-SQL to create the trigger:

Msg 4104, Level 16, State 1, Procedure trPopulateBulkPurchases, Line ...
The multi-part identifier "tblTransactions.Transaction_Type" could not be bound.

Remove the column qualifiers from the SELECT list, or replace them with "Inserted".

Now it is working flawlessly by replacing the qualifiers with INSERTED. ... thanks all!
