Trigger help!

Trigger help!

I am used to writting triggers for MSSQL but have come unstuck now I need to write one for a postgres db. If anyone can help I would be very appreciative.

I have a cdr table that receives data as follows:

insert into lookup_cdr (setup_time, gatekeeper_name, call_number, call_duration, disconnect_cause, acct_session_id, h323_id, gkip, callid, confid, caller_ip, caller_port, callee_ip, callee_port, src_info, dest_info, calling_station_id, called_station_id, dialed_number)
values ('2007-01-07 17:50:16', 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxx', '1', 0, 0, '45a132d100000001', 'root', xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx', '', '', 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx', '56250', 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx', '1720', 'root:h323_ID', '1234234334477221111111:dialedDigits', '', '', '');

at present I fire this string:

insert into lookups (msisdn, mobileno) select substr('1234234334477221111111:dialedDigits',5,5) as msisdn, substr('1234234334477221111111:dialedDigits',10,12) as mobileno where length('1234234334477221111111:dialedDigits') = 34 and 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' = 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx'

however due to restrictions within the application I need to move this second insert on to a trigger. '1234234334477221111111:dialedDigits' would be being passed to the trigger as a value from the insert. Where as the 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx's would be hard coded.

I hope this makes some sort of sense!

Thanks for any help :)


RE: Trigger help!

Have you checked the Postgres Help for Triggers?   

Unlike the MySQL help search for simple terms, your search should go quite fast and easy in Postgres.  In the help index, just type "trigger".
