Re: FOREIGN CONSTRAINT RESTRICT UNIQUE WAS EXPECTED



fixed

Thanks Luis,

I didn't expect the column I added to end up as part of any constraint.
I'll have to look closer on Monday, thanks. If I removed a constraint,
dropped the column and put back the constraint are there risks? I'm on a
test machine.

Dave,

Is it possible that the column you are trying to drop is part a of unique
constraint? If so, maybe you have to delete the constraint first before
dropping the column. Proceed with caution, though...

Regards,
Luis

get the above error message, even if I add RESTICT UNIQUE. Is there some
kind of constraint that needs to be taken off first?
