Updating of new row is not allowed in after trigger - dating daan members

I am trying to write a trigger on "dept" table,whenever there is a successful DML on dept, it has to write a record in Log table.

How can we make sure that it is fired only once for each row in an update statement other than using "After trigger for statement"? ONLY the after for each row can look at a "stable" value in the :new record.So, if you doing data validation (eg: this column must be between 1 and 30 when this condition is true), you should do that in an AFTER trigger because the BEFORE triggers may change the value on you (and since BEFORE triggers fire in SOME RANDOM order -- you cannot be assured that your BEFORE trigger fires before or after some other BEFORE trigger) So, use BEFORE FOR EACH row when you need to WRITE to the :new record use AFTER FOR EACH row triggers when you want to VALIDATE the final values in the :new record That entire referenced thread was the proof that you cannot be sure the trigger is fired only once for each row! Addenda 2017 ============ The statement "and since BEFORE triggers fire in SOME RANDOM order -- you cannot be assured that your BEFORE trigger fires before or after some other BEFORE trigger" is no longer true in recent versions of Oracle, the FOLLOWS clause allows you to define a firing order.An example of that is here Tom, Another related question, you said: "That entire referenced thread was the proof that you cannot be sure the trigger is fired only once for each row! Thanks May 17, 2005 - am UTC create trigger the_only_trigger_that_should_be_there before insert begin package.procedure1_with_code_that_was_in_trigger_one_before; package.procedure2_with_code_that_was_in_trigger_one_before; end; / concept is to have a single trigger that calls the code in the order you need it to We have a requirement to populate history tables.These 'T4' & 'T5' tables are in database 'B' therefore a db_link is used in for inserting the data in T4 & T5 tables. ( Even I used AUTONOMOUS TRANSAXTION in this trigger but performance has not improoved as desired) March 30, 2007 - pm UTC I can improve this process.lose database B, drop table t2, t4 and t5 - consolidate this all.if this data needs to be syncronously maintained in two databases - you need a single database - period, having two is not sensible.

unless you can go asynchronous (no two phase commit), slow=true will be "fact" [quote]not really, it is just that "it is more complex than can be simply stated as a sequence of operations" a simple check constraint - sure but a constraint that needs to look "across rows" like a primary key or foreign key - they are conceptually done AFTERWARDS. It was very easy to write just your paragraph ("but a constraint that needs to look "across rows" [...]) in the documentation.

will the process revisit the rollback segment perhaps ?

TIA (as always) Hi Tom Kindly help me out 1) Trigger T1 is created by user U1 against a table T1 and also the user U1 has granted full permission to the user U2.

update t set x = 5; rollback; your trigger can still fire, but never have fired against any data that actually gets changed.
