Trying to populate the RecordType field when creating an Opportunity with Apex trigger

I am creating a new Opportunity record with an Apex trigger.  I'm able to set the field values on the new Opportunity, except for the RecordType, which is a picklist containing 2 values.  I have the id value for the picklist value, I'm just not able to set it.

Have you tried this:


Opportunity objOpportunity = new Opportunity();
objOpportunity.RecordtypeId = [Select Id from recordtype where sObject = 'Opportunity' and name='Renewal'].Id;

 Replace 'renewal ' with your recordtype name.

Hope it helps.
