execute BEFOREINSERT trigger but then don't excute INSERT action

execute BEFOREINSERT trigger but then don't excute INSERT action

execute BEFOREINSERT trigger but then don't excute INSERT action

(OP)
Please help me I am stuck.
I have got a table with information about workers. And I can not delete anyone from this table because it's records could be referenced from other tables.
So I that I want is to execute a BeforeInsert tirigger, check if user already exisits, and as a result execute INSERT command or don't execute it

RE: execute BEFOREINSERT trigger but then don't excute INSERT action

Do you have defined the referential constraints in the Database? If so, delphi will not allow deletion. It would be better to look for a procedure to find all occurences of the record in the tables, and delete them in the right sequence.

RE: execute BEFOREINSERT trigger but then don't excute INSERT action

Sorry for the confusion, I thaught it was the Delphi Forum


Use referential constraints (so called foreign keys) and apply rules:

An example, you have a table with products and you want to make a link to your suppliers table. Your supplier can go out of bussiness, change his name etc., but you don't want to lose your history because of that.

ALTER TABLE PRODUCTS
ADD FOREIGN KEY (SUPPLIER) REFERENCES SUPPLIERS
ON DELETE SET NULL
ON UPDATE CASCADE
