Thanks Rick... It is working.
I may need more help on creating complex triggers.
To begin with this was helpful.

Subject: Re: Create Trigger .. Please help

Hi Mamatha,

I'm not sure that I understand what the trigger is supposed to do, but 
here is a sample script which may do something close. Along the way I 
rephrased myTable.size as a generated column because your example 
suggested it was being used that way:

create table myTable
(
   myTableID INTEGER NOT NULL GENERATED ALWAYS AS IDENTITY (START WITH 
1, INCREMENT BY 1),
   Name     VARCHAR (50) NOT NULL,
   size INTEGER NOT NULL generated always as ( length( name ) )
);
create table targetTable
(
  targetTableID INTEGER NOT NULL GENERATED ALWAYS AS IDENTITY (START 
WITH 1, INCREMENT BY 1),
  myTableID INTEGER,
  size INTEGER
);
create trigger copySize
  after insert on myTable
  referencing new as newRow
  for each row
    insert into targetTable( myTableID, size ) values ( 
newRow.myTableID, newRow.size )
;

insert into myTable (name) values ('Jon231232');
insert into myTable (name) values ('Mamatha');
insert into myTable (name) values ('Star');

select * from myTable;
select * from targetTable;

Hope this helps,
-Rick
