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

I have asked a similar question in the past and Mrdenny was able to assist me with the information below:

That trigger would look something like this.

 CREATE TRIGGER t_YourTable_u on dbo.YourTable
  FOR UPDATE
  AS
  UPDATE YourTable
          SET UserName = suser_sname(),
                   DateChanged = getdate()
 FROM inserted
 WHERE inserted.PK_Column = YourTable.PK_Column

Table and column names will need to be changed to match your table and column names.

The table inserted is a virtual table who’s name can not be changed.

This worked great for me.
