I've got a table that is supposed to track days and costs for shipping product from one vendor to another. We (brilliantly :p) stored both the shipping vendors (FedEx, UPS) with the product handling vendors (Think… Dunder Mifflin) in a "VENDOR" table. So, I have three columns in my SHIPPING_DETAILS table that all reference VENDOR.no. For some reason MySQL isn't letting me define all three as foreign keys. Any ideas?
CREATE TABLE SHIPPING_GRID( id INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY COMMENT 'Unique ID for each row', shipping_vendor_no INT(6) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Foreign key to VENDOR.no for the shipping vendor (vendors_type must be 3)', start_vendor_no INT(6) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Foreign key to VENDOR.no for the vendor being shipped from', end_vendor_no INT(6) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Foreign key to the VENDOR.no for the vendor being shipped to', shipment_duration INT(1) DEFAULT 1 COMMENT 'Duration in whole days shipment will take', price FLOAT(5,5) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Price in US dollars per shipment lbs (down to 5 decimal places)', is_flat_rate TINYINT(1) DEFAULT 0 COMMENT '1 if is flat rate regardless of weight, 0 if price is by lbs', INDEX (shipping_vendor_no), INDEX (start_vendor_no), INDEX (end_vendor_no), FOREIGN KEY (shipping_vendor_no) REFERENCES VENDOR (no), FOREIGN KEY (start_vendor_no) REFERENCES VENDOR (no), FOREIGN KEY (end_vendor_no) REFERENCES VENDOR (no) ) TYPE = INNODB;
Edited to remove double primary key definition…
Yeah, unfortunately that didn't fix it though. Now I'm getting:
Can't create table
'./REMOVED MY DB NAME/SHIPPING_GRID.frm'
Doing a phpinfo() tells me this for mysql:
Client API version 5.0.45
Yes, the VENDOR.no is type int(6).
