Problem with insert trigger

Problem with insert trigger

Problem with insert trigger

(OP)
I've created an insert trigger that works if I add records manually using PCC. But when I use our accounting app to insert a new record in the same table the trigger doesn't fire. Thoughts?

RE: Problem with insert trigger

If the accounting application is Btrieve based, it won't fire triggers.  
Btrieve can't fire triggers, only ODBC.

Is there a way to get around this?


RE: Problem with insert trigger

Get around what?  Making Btrieve fire a trigger?  No.  
What are you trying to accomplish with the trigger?

RE: Problem with insert trigger

(OP)
We're doing ETL between to databases (A and B) and want to poll database A for changes and send them to database B.

Now knowing that triggers won't work the worst I can do is to replicate table A on a temp table and run queries on a join of the two for changes on the columns that I want.

But I want to know if there is a workaround before doing this.
