ON DELETE CASCADE

Specifies that if an attempt is made to delete a row with a key referenced by foreign keys in existing rows in other tables, all rows containing those foreign keys are also deleted. If cascading referential actions have also been defined on the target tables, the specified cascading actions are also taken for the rows deleted from those tables.

In your case , what you are trying to do is , you are trying to delete from a reference table and you need to delete the curresponding records from the master table(ASPNET_USERS).
Now, what if, ASPNET_USERS.USERID is refernrenced in some other tables too?

You just have to enable 'ON DELETE CASCADE' on ASPNET_USERS.USERID , and just try to delete that userId from 'ASPNET_USERS'. I assume that this is the mater table , by doing this it will remove all the foreign key references.

Hi,

That's really great.

When I executed this

ALTER TABLE [dbo].[vb_Registration]  WITH CHECK ADD  CONSTRAINT [FK_vb_Registration_aspnet_Users] FOREIGN KEY([Userid])
REFERENCES [dbo].[aspnet_Users] ([UserId]) ON DELETE CASCADE

I get the error

Msg 2714, Level 16, State 4, Line 1
There is already an object named 'FK_vb_Registration_aspnet_Users' in the database.
Msg 1750, Level 16, State 0, Line 1
Could not create constraint. See previous errors.

Previously this script was of with Cascade, I mean the script was

ALTER TABLE [dbo].[vb_Registration]  WITH CHECK ADD  CONSTRAINT [FK_vb_Registration_aspnet_Users] FOREIGN KEY([Userid])
REFERENCES [dbo].[aspnet_Users] ([UserId])

How can I modify it.

But below is executed perfect

ALTER TABLE [dbo].[aspnet_Membership]  WITH CHECK ADD FOREIGN KEY([UserId])
REFERENCES [dbo].[aspnet_Users] ([UserId])
ON DELETE CASCADE

Many Thanks
