After Update Trigger

After Update Trigger

(OP)
I have a table PSLET_INFORMATION with the field PSLET_RECORD_LAST_UPDATED (Date)
I would like to set this field to SYSDATE whenever there is any Update to any record(s) in that table.

So I've tried a trigger:

CODE

create trigger PSLET_INFORMATION_T 
AFTER UPDATE
ON PSLET_INFORMATION
FOR EACH ROW
begin
    :new.PSLET_RECORD_LAST_UPDATED := SYSDATE;
end PSLET_INFORMATION_T;
/ 

I get an error PLS-00103:
Encountered the symbol 'end-of-file' when expecting one of the following:
(begin case declare exit for ...)

Any ideas of how this simple trigger should look like?

Have fun.

Pretty much one word difference:

CODE

create or replace trigger PSLET_INFORMATION_T 
BEFORE UPDATE
ON PSLET_INFORMATION
FOR EACH ROW
begin
    :new.PSLET_RECORD_LAST_UPDATED := SYSDATE;
end PSLET_INFORMATION_T;
/ 

Looks like you can change data in the table with the trigger using BEFORE update.
AFTER update will change the data in other tables.

Have fun.

RE: After Update Trigger

Actually you can change other tables data in either a before or after trigger. However you can only update data on the table that the trigger is on using a before trigger.
