FAQs

Column limitations limit the types of data that can be entered into a column. Although the data in each individual column does not have to be unique, the combination of data in the PRIMARY KEY columns of a specific table must be unique.

In MySQL, the syntax for defining a unique constraint with an ALTER TABLE statement is: TABLE CHANGE constraint name UNIQUE (column1, column2,... column n); table name ADD CONSTRAINT constraint name UNIQUE (column1, column2,... column n); table name.

SQL constraints are rules that a table's data must follow. The type of data that can be entered into a table is limited by constraints. This ensures that the data in the table is accurate and reliable. The action is cancelled if there is a conflict between the constraint and the data action.

SQL constraints are guidelines for how data in a table should be handled. The type of data that can be put into a table is limited by constraints. This guarantees the table's data's accuracy and consistency. The data action is cancelled if there is a conflict between the constraint and the data action.

In SQL, the CHECK constraint is an example of an integrity constraint. The CHECK constraint sets a search criteria that will be used to verify the value entered into a row. If the result of a search condition is FALSE for any row of the table, the constraint is broken (but not if result is UNKNOWN or TRUE).
