'Fraid not Sri Gnana. Triggers are not supported in MSAccess. Neither are SPs (unless its 2002). But then again MSAccess is certainly not robust, secure, or feature rich enough for any professional application to actually use it as a DB. You should probably go back to your client and advise that they are about to do something very stupid. This seems doubley daft since MySQL is better and free...
