With `pragma recursive_triggers=1` everything works flawlessly. Thanks a lot! I hadn't even thought about PRAGMAs... > As an aside, can you please use proper quotes? I sure can. Thanks for making me aware of my quote-abuse :-) P.S.: I think it might be a good idea to link the info about `recursive_triggers` on https://sqlite.org/lang_createtrigger.html . This way I would have found the solution myself when I searched the page for "recurs*".
