Replication of Cascaded Deletes
We have an ASE consolidated database with several foreign key constraints.
On our remote ASA database we have the same constraints with the "ON DELETE
CASCADE" option. When deletes are cascaded on ASA and then replicated back
to ASE, the deletes start with the parent tables first and then the
children. Replication then fails, because the ASE foreign key constraints
think that children are being orphaned. Is there a way around this problem?
Not that I am aware of. You will have to control the deletes yourself
instead of using CASCADE in ASA.
Syba...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 ...Replicate in Cascade for 3 or more Databases with Replication Server
We want to make a table-to-table replication schema for 3 or
more databases using this architecture:
The row is created/modified in the first ASE, then, this row
is saved in central ASE using Rep Server, and this central
ASE replicate this row to other Remotes ASE's, in a cascade
fashion. The replication must be bi-directional, and we want
that all ASE's are always synchronised with the same data.
We try to do this with 3 ASE's, one origin, one repository
and one remote, but the record replicates only to the
repository and not to the remote ASE.
Anyone knows ...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...cascade delete
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
ASE does not support declarative cascading deletes through referential
If you want to do cascading deletes, you will have to write triggers to
foreign keys, rather than using the constraints.

I'm trying to add delete cascade to an already-existing table via ISQL. I'm
getting a syntax error:
alter table carrier on delete cascade;
Error = syntax error near 'on'
Should I be able to do this?
I'm running on Windows 2000 Pro, SQLAnywhere 5.5.03, using DBENG50.EXE.
It should be something like:
alter table carrier drop foreign key fk1
alter table carrier add foreign key fk1 references ... etc ... on delete
Then when the row in the fk1 table is deleted the row in the "carrier" table
will be deleted also.
In SQL Central, how do I set sqlanywhere to enforce referential integrety

To create a foreign key you can click on the "Add foreign Key" line
to start a fkey creation wizard. To change the properties of an
existing foreign key definition, Right click on the foreign key and
choose Properties. Click the 'Integrity' tab. Under "de...CASCADE ON DELETE
Just a quick question: will ASE 12.5 support CASCADE ON DELETE on table
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?

Don't use the constraints. Use only the triggers for your RI.
Arthur Lan...CASCADE ON DELETE?
I didn't create the database I'm now working with, in SQLAnywhere 5.0. I
want to delete a large number of records and have it do a CASCADE on

exists for this table?

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.
I recall there is a feature request to have this function

on to increase it priority. Enhancement ID 2235:

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:

I've got a table that has referencied rows on another tables, and I want to

I see two problems at this point:
