Would a function or procedure work in my case? Executed by a trigger?

I have six tables:


I want to create a trigger so that, when a new record is inserted to any of the tables S000...S004, the field SALES.LAST_DATE in a specific record is updated with the value of the field "SALE_DATE" that was just inserted (in S000...s004).

Here is pseudo-code:

if table(S000...S004) has a new record inserted then
x = tablename that was just updated
y = SALE_DATE from record that was just inserted
update SALES set LAST_DATE = y where TNAME = x
end if

"TNAME" is a field in SALES that holds the tablename (S000...S004)

I've been working with MySQL for a while, but only simple tables and queries. I've never used triggers, functions or procedures.

Is this workable with a trigger, function or procedure?

BTW, I cannot change the design of the tables, because some old programs rely on the table structure just the way it is.

Any advice, suggestions or insights is appreciated in advance! Or even just pointing me in the right direction.
