=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Hi again,
I have just tried to investigate and record what InnoDB status has
noticed,

According to the MySQL reference manual,
A foreign key constraint is in My Code erroneously coded,

=3D=3D
If MySQL gives the error number 1005 from a CREATE TABLE
statement, and the error message string refers to errno 150, then
the table creation failed because a foreign key constraint was not
correctly formed. Similarly, if an ALTER TABLE fails and it refers
to errno 150, that means a foreign key definition would be incorrectly
formed for the altered table. Starting from version 4.0.13, you can
use SHOW INNODB STATUS to look at a detailed explanation of the
latest InnoDB foreign key error in the server.
=3D=3D=20
According to my general SQL experience it is all correctly=20
ANSI SQL-92 coded.

Please help me,

What else can be done ?

Yours Sincerely

Morten Gulbrandsen

Morten,

In your extremely long mail, I think I managed to find your question and
removed all other stuff.

6.5.4 ALTER TABLE Syntax

alter_specification:

So what it clearly tells you, is to use this (note the 'ADD'):

mysql> ALTER TABLE EMPLOYEE

-> ON DELETE SET NULL
-> ON UPDATE CASCADE;

Fred.
