    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.
