Q

Call triggers in a stored procedure

Can I call triggers in stored procedures or vice versa?

Can I call triggers in stored procedures or vice versa?
Triggers cannot be called directly. Instead they are fired automatically when you perform an insert/update or delete on a table that has triggers. Therefore, you cannot call a trigger in a stored procedure. You can perform an insert / update or delete that will force a trigger to fire. As to the second part of your question, you can absolutely execute stored procedures in the source code of a trigger.
