I have to tables
Employee(id,firstname,middlename,lastname,function)
Function(id,description)


Im trying to create foreign key on Employye in field function but i get the following error:

Can't create table '.\mydb\#sql-e28_8.frm' (Error: 150)

Employee.function has same data type with Function.ID.
Table types are InnoDB.

first - create index on Employe(fuunction) and then can you continue with FK creation...

Error 150 is foreign key error.
Do a SHOW INNODB STATUS and you can search for the foreign key error, you will get a better details of the error.
