I am using the Upsize Wizard and one of the choices I have to make is to use DRI or triggers to implements constrains. What is the difference and which one is preferable ?

Thank you.

Trigger is actually a stored procedure, which is automatically fired on one of the following actions performed on the table:DELETE INSERT or UPDATE. DRI is a way to declare relationships between tables at the time, when table is created (declared). They perform the same thing, though trigger gives you  more control, since it allows you to have more functionality. for example, if you use DRI to check, that no orders can be entered for non-existing customers,and you try to insert an order,you will just receive standart error message, if you use trigger, you can create your own error message, and perform some addtional tasks.
