Change End Dates



I have a table who's population are a number of memberships with a "Start_Date" and "End_Date".

I would like to run a trigger that renews the memberships "End_Date " with todays date using a timestamp when the membership field "renew" is set and updated to "YES".

Following this an automated email is triggered to email the members "Email_Address" when the renew is set to "Yes" with the new "End_Date".

I have tried doing this with a trigger in the same table but have a level 2 error and understand that update can be triggered in the same table.

Does anyone have a work around for this.

Thanks for the response BaySunshine....I have the trigger working whereby I insert records into a different table and then bring them back into the original table with the trigger on it....However the email section of the trigger is not working???? Thanks for your help....

See below screen shot of the trigger...

Hi @Scott,

In the Email block, change the table name from ABGCMembershipCoporate to Inserted. For the update trigger, change one of the fields in Inner Join to RenewalsTable.MemertsiopGUID. Right now it is joining only on its own record. So, the update will happen always whether or not it matches with GUID field from RenewalsTable or not.

I hope this helps.
