whats wrong with this query

  • 9 years ago

    hi all,

    I was using the following sql query command to drop the relation(constraint), i used the following command to do this:

    ALTER TABLE [dbo].[tbEmpQualification] DROP CONSTRAINT [FK_tbEmpQualification_tbEmpInfo] FOREIGN KEY([fkEmpCd]) REFERENCES [dbo].[tbEmpInfo] ([pkEmpCd])

    But it gives me the following error:

     

    Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 1

    Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'FOREIGN'.

    Can u guide me where I am going wrong.

    Regards,

    Royal

    Royal,

    Did you try simply using:

    ALTER TABLE [dbo].[tbEmpQualification] DROP CONSTRAINT [FK_tbEmpQualification_tbEmpInfo]

    ?

    hi Joe,

    Nice to see u after a long gap. ya, I got it correct, did the same thing last week. I needed to delete the relation from the Database Diagram. So I directly did it throught the diagram.

    Anyways, thanks for your concern.

    Regards,
