Cascading deletes

I need to know the best method to process cascading deletes with a SQL
Anywhere 5.0 DB.  The user can delete certain records and I want to make
sure all child records are also deleted.

Thanks in advance.

foreign keys.

Cascading deletes - Which is better
I need to implement my cascading deletes on a SQL database.  Is it better (performance/reliablility-wise) to use the Foreign Key Cascading Deletes or to just write my own triggers to do the deletes?I was hoping someone had experimented and found which works best. DRI(declarative referential integrity) triggers are used when Cascade Deletes and Updates cannot be implemented in the RDBMS(relational database management system) as in SQL Server 7.0 and below.  In SQL Server 2000 using Cascade Delete and Cascade Update is the way to go.  The reason is reliability related because ...

Is Cascading deletes prefered to deleting thru a stored procedure?
I have a situation in which I have three tables - 'Table1', 'Table2' and 'Table3'. 'Table1' is a primary table for 'Table2' so that the the primary key of 'Table1' is a foreign key in 'Table2'. In the same way, 'Table1' is also the primary table for 'Table3'. If I delete a row in 'Table1' then I could automatically let SQL Server also delete the related rows in 'Table2' and 'Table3' through 'cascading delete' option. Or I could run a trigger or stored procedure for deleting related rows in 'Table2' and 'Table3'. Which of these methods would be quicker? Also would cascading deletes option a...

Delete on cascade
Hello, I have a problem with the speed of a delete on a table that use cascades delete I use ASA I have a table (tb_a). It has 100 records. This table is referenced by 16 other tables. (tb_b) Some of these tables are referenced by other tables.(tb_c) Some of these referenced tables are referenced by other tables.

Cascading Deletes
In PowerDesigner 9.5.2, is it possible to have all relationships in the PDM which have cascading deletes highlighted in a different color than the others. I'm hoping there is a way other than manually changing the color on each one. If you can handle a little VB Script writing, you can do it. There are a few sample scripts to start with. What you will need to do is: Spin through all of the references. For each, if the type is on delete cascade, then set the color attribute to something special. It really shouldn't be a lot of coding. If you need help, post back here ...

Does anyone know how to implement cascade delete within ASE on tables with foreign keys? If so please help me! I know that ASA has this capability but I can not find anything in ASE to support it. Here is my email if you have an answer thanks, Richard ASE does not support declarative cascading deletes through referential integrity. If you want to do cascading deletes, you will have to write triggers to handle your foreign keys, rather than using the constraints. -bret Rich and Peg wrote: > Does anyone know how to implement cascade dele...

Cascading delete
In my consolidated database I have a foreign key between two tables with the cascading delete integrity constraint applied. The two tables are replicated (in their entirety) to a remote database. In the remote database should I have the delete integrity constraint applied in the foreign key between the two tables? If a record is deleted from table A in the consolidated database and this cascades and deletes a record in table B, won't the individual delete statements from the transaction log be applied to the remote database thus removing the need for the "cascade" to ...

Good afternoon, I am seeing some conflicting information when I search for the ON DELETE CASCADE statement on the Internet. Does ASE 15.x support the ON DELETE CASCADE function or is this same functionality implemented via a trigger? Thanks in advance. Whatty Hi, I recall there is a feature request to have this function but don't know if it is in ASE 15.x yet (Change Request 289627) Also there is a similar request from ISUG which you can vote on to increase it priority.

Hello, I'm trying to use cascade delete on Sybase, but it doesn't work like SQL Server 2000. Does anyone know how to do it (I can't use a stored procedure, only triggers)? I've got a table that has referencied rows on another tables, and I want to delete these records when I delete the row on the parent table. This is the parent table CREATE TABLE dbo.tbl_Protocolo_x_Documento ( Cn_Protocolo int, Cn_Documento int, Ds_Motivo varchar(255), CONSTRAINT PK_tbl_Protocolo_x_Documento PRIMARY KEY(Cn_Protocolo,Cn_Documento) ) GO...

Cascade Delete
PowerDesigner Version and MS SQL 7.0 SP3. I need to be able to allow for Cascading deletes and updates.

Cascading Deletes
I'm trying to implement cascading deletes in Sybase via a trigger. I know I can't just specify this when I create the foreign key constraint. So, my question is this, which will fire first, the RI or the trigger? If it's the former, then I won't be able to delete any children because the parent will exist. Is there a clean workaround if this is the case? Thanks! Arthur ---== Posted via the PFCGuide Web Newsreader ==--- Don't use the constraints. Use only the triggers for your RI.
