Help creating a trigger to update Account.BillingState

Hi all,


I need a bit of some help creating a trigger.   Contacts and accounts are being created using the API.  Upon insert a contact and an account are created with the following data:


Account Owner (defaulting to the api account)

Account Record Type (In this case "Enterprise'")

Account Name


Contact Owner (defaulting to the api account)

Contact Name

Contact MailingState

Contact MailingCity


What I need to do is create a trigger to perform the following.  After insert, check if Account BillingState, AccountBillingCity are null and Account Record Type is named  "Enterprise" or the 15digitid.  If so, populate AccountBillingState with the Contact Mailing State and populate AccountBillingCity with the ContactMailing City


I hope this makes sense.  Thank you in advance.  


trigger copyAddress on Contact (after insert)


//code to pull the account details related to contact


//check if the account details satisfy your conditions


//if conditions are satisfied then copy contact address to account



let me know if you need any other info


That sounds right, thank you.  Is there a recommended resource or perhaps some existing code to help me get started?  Thank you
