Foriegn Key Checks

Hi,

When we define foreign keys, they are checked by user interface only and they do not exist in database.

But if we r to update some z tables, without user interface, how one can be assured that foreign key constraints are also checked ?

Regards,

Nitin

    Hi Nitin,

    If you update the tables without a user-interface (a screen, in particualr), then the ckecks will not take place. That is the reason you are strongly advised not to update the database tables directly.

    Hi Nitin,

    You have chosen the option "Solved it on my own". And you haven't rewarded any points to any of the answers give. So do we take it that you have found <i>none</i> of the responses useful ? Also, if you have solved it on your own, then can you share the answer that you have found ?
