Foreign key Constraint Fails in MYSQL 5.0.18

60 New Member

I'm using MySQL 5.0.18 . Here i'm unable to assign foreign key. Though it is assigned , while adding a row to a child table , it violates the foreign key rule.
Database engine is MyISAM. It is mentioned in MySQL document , that MyISAM (default one) will not support foreign key constraints. Hence , while creating table i maually modified the syntax as ,

create table table1 (... ) engine = innodb

But still , i'm unable to assign and use foreign keys in MySQL Database.

Let me know the solution

Thanks in advance
