Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try the following:

CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER Aud_table
BEFORE INSERT OR UPDATE
ON table
REFERENCING OLD AS old NEW AS new
FOR EACH ROW
BEGIN
If Inserting or Updating
Then
IF :new.Edits_Completed=’YES’
Then
:new.date_completed := SYSDATE;
End If;
End If;
END;
/
