what are Triggers?..

Answer / kaarthi v

Triggers are the database objects (Like Procedures) which
will be executed by the Database itself and cannot be
excuted by the user explicitly. The trigger can be written
to execute while inserting/ updating/ deleting a row.

Two types of triiger

ROW LEVEL TRIGGER
===============
Row Level triggers are FOR EACH ROW, that is, the trigger
is activated for each row that is inserted/updated/deleted.

STATEMENT LEVEL TRIGGER
=====================
Statement level triggers will execute the action specified
only once. (Will not consider the no. of rows being
inserted/updated/deleted)
