Hi guys I'm learning SQL server for the first time and the concept of the trigger is a little tricky. I missed my update trigger and now having trouble implementing them practically. coming to the question we have two tables one is UserMaster

Column Name 	Data Type	   Remarks
USERID	        INTEGER	       Primary Key
DESIGNATION	    CHAR(1)	       ‘M’ for ‘MANAGER’, ‘T’ for ‘TELLER’, ‘C’ for ‘CLERK’, ‘O’ for ‘OFFICER’; NOT NULL.


Column Name 	    Data Type	   Remarks
TRANSACTION NUMBER	INTEGER	       Primary Key; Identity, seed=1, Increment=1; 
ACID	            INTEGER	       Foreign Key; NOT NULL
BRID	            CHAR(3)	       Foreign Key; NOT NULL
TXN_TYPE	        CHAR(3)	       ‘CW’ for ‘CASH WITHDRAWAL’, ‘CD’ for ‘CASH 
                                   DEPOSIT’, ‘CQD’ for ‘CHEQUE DEPOSIT’; NOT NULL 
CHQ_NO	            INTEGER	       NULL ALLOWED
USERID	            INTEGER	       Foreign Key; NOT NULL

Question 1
When a Transaction is altered, the difference between the old amount and the new amount cannot be more than 10%, if the transaction has been affected by the teller

Question 2
More than three Cash Withdrawal transactions in a single account on the same day should not be allowed

Sorry for the tables alignment i can't align them properly here

What I have tried:

I tried some logic but it seems not working. Can some one help me with the logic.

ALTER trigger [dbo].[UDT_transaction_altered]
on [dbo].[TransactionMaster]
after update
declare @old_userid int
declare @new_userid int
declare @acid int
declare @newamt money
declare @oldamt money
declare @diffamt money
declare @10perct money
declare @designation char(1)

--Get teller info and txn_amount Info
select @old_userid = userid, @oldamt = TXN_AMOUNT from deleted --contains old data
select @acid = acid, @new_userid = userid, @newamt = TXN_AMOUNT from inserted --contains new data

set @diffamt = @newamt - @oldamt
set @10perct = (0.1 * @oldamt) + @oldamt

if update(TXN_AMOUNT)
		if (@diffamt < 0)
				print ' TXN_AMOUNT canot be negative' 
				print ' Transaction declined'
			if(@newamt > @10perct)
				print ' New TXN_AMOUNT canot be more than 10% of old amount' 
				print ' Transaction declined'
				update TransactionMaster set TXN_AMOUNT = @newamt where acid = @acid

This is not an assignment for grades. I'm a freelancer from a non-IT background learning SQL server for free from SQL server videos shared by my friend because I can't afford the training fee. in those videos, triggers are missing, and now facing trouble implementing them practically. Just learning SQL to upgrade my skills for better opportunities. Any help would be much appreciated.

select TransactionNumber, acid , tm.USERID,designation ,count(*) as nooftrans from TransactionMaster tm join usermaster um
on tm.userid = um.USERID
where datediff(dd,dot,getdate()) = 0 and um.designation = 'T'
group by TransactionNumber, ACID,tm.USERID ,Designation
order by ACID

Is this query correct to get whether the transaction was done by the teller or not?

should we use cursors to update the result set for by the above-mentioned update trigger requirement?

Highly unlikely that you would need a cursor ... for anything. There is usually a set-based way to do it

While we are more than willing to help those that are stuck, that doesn't mean that we are here to do it all for you! We can't do all the work, you are either getting paid for this, or it's part of your grades and it wouldn't be at all fair for us to do it all for you.

So we need you to do the work, and we will help you when you get stuck. That doesn't mean we will give you a step by step solution you can hand in!
Start by explaining where you are at the moment, and what the next step in the process is. Then tell us what you have tried to get that next step working, and what happened when you did.

learning SQL server for free from SQL server videos shared by my friend
I've not yet been able to find a video that conveys sufficient information on technical topics by itself. If you are going to use them at all, use them in conjunction with other resources, such as articles and tutorials. There are many free ones available e.g.
The Comprehensive Guide to SQL Triggers[^]

because I can't afford the training fee.
Have you looked at cheaper alternatives such as Pluralsight, LinkedIn Learning, A book? There are also several articles here on Code Project, all free - see this site Search[^]

but it seems not working
This is the least helpful bit of information that new members give us. It tells us exactly nothing about your problem. Be specific - is an error thrown? What values are returned (and what values were you expecting). On that note, well done for providing sample data.

I can warn you about one thing - your trigger is assuming that only one row at a time can be altered - this may not be the case - learn about Transactions and remember that SQL is a set-based language, you rarely need cursors or loops (see Processing Loops in SQL Server[^] )
