The "alter table" statement conflicted with Foreign key consrtaint

15 New Member
I have created Two tables

1]EmployeeTable
--------------------------
EmpID [ bigint] [PrimaryKey]
EmpName [ varchar(50)]
AccessLevelID [bigint ] [ Foreign Key]

2]AccessLevelTabl e
-----------------------------
AccessLevelID [ bigint ] [ PrimaryKey ]
AccessLevelName [varchar(50)]


Now i am creating relationship between these two tables.
I select relationship option for first table.
Then I added new relationship by selecting primary table field and foreign key table field.
Afterall when i am trying to save these changes I get one error
"The ALTER table Statement conflicted with foreign key constraint".
Can anyone help me as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance

What relationship are you creating on which field?

Check the properties of [EmployeeTable].[AccessLevelID] to make sure there is nothing which is incompatible with the field being used as a foreign key. The one that first springs to mind is the Nullable property (Allow Nulls).
