    Hello.

    I have a question regarding Error 3201 (You cannot add or change a
    record because a related record is required in table <name>). It is my
    understanding that this error occures when the referential integrety
    rules are violated. In my case this error pops up every time I leave a
    table fieled, that links this (many) table to a one table (that's a
    foreign key, right? :) ), empty.

    I want to know if there is a way I can make this work? Keep my
    referential integrety and still have the option to leave my fieled
    blank?

    I am sorry if my question is dumb; I'm a little new at this.

    This error is not occurring because you leave this specific foreign key
    field blank ... are you sure it's not another of the fields that has RI
    enforced on it, and that you've entered a value in that other field that is
    not in the parent table?

    Hello, Ken. Thank you for replying my "call for help". :)
    I deleted the value "0" in the Default value field of the foreign key
    and it works fine now. Thank you anyway.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
