Adding check to an existing table.

Posted By:Abhisek Panda       Posted Date: November 30, 2009    Points: 10    Category: SQL Query    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  
 

When a check constraint is added to an existing table, the check constraint can apply to either,
Existing data
To new data only


By default the check constraints applies to new data as well as existing data,

ALTER TABLE  ADD CONSTRAINTS CHECK(condition)

Adding to new data only:
ALTER TABLE  with no check ADD CONSTRAINTS CHECK(condition)

You will be careful when adding a constraint without checking the existing data, because this bypasses the controls

in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 that enforces the integrity rules for the table.
