Just for completeness here's what I did. I created a table called CALLSLOG:
CREATE TABLE dbo.callslog (
Server varchar (16) NOT NULL ,
NASPort int NOT NULL ,
CallDate smalldatetime NOT NULL ,
UserName varchar (32) NOT NULL ,
framedaddress varchar (16) NULL,
AcctSessionTime int NULL

Then I modified the Emerald calls_insert trigger to move just the stop
records into the callslog

if exists (select * from sysobjects where id =
object_id('dbo.calls_insert') and sysstat & 0xf = 8)
drop trigger dbo.calls_insert

CREATE TRIGGER calls_insert
ON dbo.Calls

UPDATE ServerPorts
SET sp.UserName = i.UserName, sp.AcctStatusType = i.AcctStatusType,
so.CallDate = i.CallDate, sp.FramedAddress = i.FramedAddress
FROM Servers s, ServerPorts sp, inserted i
WHERE s.IPAddress = i.NASIdentifier AND s.ServerID = sp.ServerID AND
sp.Port = i.NASPort

UPDATE SubAccounts
SET sa.TimeLeft = sa.TimeLeft - (i.AcctSessionTime/60 + 1)
FROM SubAccounts sa, inserted i
WHERE sa.login = i.UserName and sa.TimeLeft <> NULL and i.AcctStatusType = 2

/* Tom's part for the callslog trigger */
INSERT callslog(server, NASPort, CallDate, UserName, FramedAddress,
SELECT s.server, i.NASPort, i.CallDate, i.UserName, i.FramedAddress,
FROM Servers s, inserted i
WHERE s.IPAddress = i.NASIdentifier AND ACCTStatusType = 2
/* done */

Good luck.
