SQL Geodatabase, point feature class, MGRS field trigger?

Question asked by canadajebus on Feb 25, 2015

Hi, I am running an SQL Geodatabase on my server and I have a point feature class in it.  I would like to set up a string field that automatically updates containing the MGRS of the point.  I am guessing I need to set up a trigger that is pulled on UPDATE, INSERT for the shape field.  Would I have have to call a geoprocessing function such as Convert Coordinate Notation in order to calculate this field?  Logically this workflow makes sense to me, but I don't know how to accomplish it as I'm fairly new to working with this type of geodatabase.  I know how to set up a basic trigger, but nothing like this.  Any help would be appreciated!
