Apparently a foreign key constraint has failed. You can use

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. show innodb status; 
to show the last foreign key constraint that failed.

I am sorry but i did not get it. I am using Navicat that is only GUI no code section.

Details: I want to do relationships with two tables. Players and Manufacturers

To do that in VWD. i have to assign the index key and foreign key in Navicat.

When i put the Index key it works but when i assign foreign key -- it ask me to put the reference table and choose the columns i want.

I choose - what i want and when i click ok i get this error that

Foreign Key constraint Fails:------


Thanks in advance,

Well you have to understand your tables and the constraints that exist on them. Something is happening to a foreign key which is not allowed by one of your constraints. Check against your constratints.

i meet the same error. I found my mistake is I inserted data, which not corresponding to both table before I create foreign key.

Ex: table a(id, name) with 2 record (1,peter); (2, flower)
table b(id, sex) with 3 record (1, male); (2, female); (3, male)
so when create foreign key for id of table b -> id of table a, record 3 of table b can't find any record of table a correspond.

Hi, I am trying to save information into MySQL using PHP. The data I am saving is in Arabic language. The database table will show some "???" or other characters. If I insert the text directly through PHPMyAdmin it works, but not through PHP. I also, modified the PHP page to accept UTF-8 encoding. What other changes do I have to do? Thanks in advance,
