Hi All,
I just want to ask that is there any way to put conditions in trigger that it should fire only when the condition is satisfied?

Suppose I have an Employee table
columns are Empname, Empjob, salary and Deptno.

I want a insert trigger to be fired only when i insert a row in Employee table with job as manager
and if i insert row with job as Clerk or any job other than Manager then that trigger should not fire.

looking forward for your reply..

Thanks in advance

Use the WHEN clause

for each row
WHEN (NEW.empjob = 'manager')
