Hi,

I have a script to create a table in which there is a CONSTRAINT, can somebody explain what this CONSTRAINT would achive.

CONSTRAINT [PK_CategoryCategoryHistory] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED
(
      [ParentCategoryID] ASC,
      [ChildCategoryID] ASC,
      [SiteLangID] ASC,
      [ParentVersion] ASC
)WITH (IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF) ON [PRIMARY]
) ON [PRIMARY]

And also is there a site that would list all the key words used in sql server and explain the usage?
Thanks

from BOL

IGNORE_DUP_KEY = { ON | OFF }
Specifies the error response to duplicate key values in a multiple-row insert operation on a unique clustered or unique nonclustered index. The default is OFF.

ON
A warning message is issued and only the rows violating the unique index fail.

OFF
An error message is issued and the entire INSERT transaction is rolled back.

The IGNORE_DUP_KEY setting applies only to insert operations that occur after the index is created or rebuilt. The setting has no affect during the index operation.

IGNORE_DUP_KEY cannot be set to ON for XML indexes and indexes created on a view.

In backward compatible syntax, WITH IGNORE_DUP_KEY is equivalent to WITH IGNORE_DUP_KEY = ON.
