Constraint on Update and Delete

Hi

I am trying to write a create statement whereby I create a new table with two constraints.  They are that there can be no updates or deletes.  I know that the syntax for constraints is CONSTRAINT XXX, but am not quite sure on how to use it.  Here is my current statement:

CREATE TABLE  `ordertbl` (
  `OrdNo` varchar(8) NOT NULL,
  `OrdDate` date NOT NULL,
  `CustNo` varchar(8) NOT NULL,
  `EmpNo` varchar(8) default NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`OrdNo`));

Couldn't you just remove Update and Delete rights from the table?  See this MSDN page on denying permssions: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177518.aspx

Also, you can view this forum,http://www.webservertalk.com/archive132-2005-7-1147074.html, which has a few ideas for locking down these things.

in addition to DENY the UPDATE and DELETE to the users, you could also implement a trigger that rollsback any updates/deletes.
you cannot implement this with constraints.

you can't do that with constraints as angeliii says... a trigger is the only ultimate safeguard...

I am trying to prevent a user from updating and deleting a row, through SQL.

So I repeat my comment:

do you need help with those?
