ONDELETE Table Constraint
Table constraint activated when an attempt is made to delete a record in the table
ALTER TABLE, CONSTRAINTS, CREATE TABLE
A constraint is used to define rules that help to provide data integrity. TABLE constraints apply to table-based operations. You must have ALTER privilege on the table. The table will be locked for EXCLUSIVE use during the operation.
The ONDELETE / ONBEFOREDELETE table constraint is activated when an attempt is made to delete a record in the table. The <procedure> specified must be a character expression evaluating to a procedure name. If no file extension is included, '.prg' is assumed. The specified procedure is run before the operation to delete the record is executed and must return True (.T.) or the delete operation is cancelled.
ALTER TABLE customer; modify ONDELETE "customer_ondelete" ALTER TABLE customer; modify ONBEFOREDELETE "customer_onbeforedelete"
