I am trying to create a relation between two tables and get this error message.  I am not sure I understand what constraint it is talking about.  Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Kenny


protected void PopulateProviderTable()
    {

       
        SqlDataAdapter sqlDA = CreateProviderAdapter();
        SqlDataAdapter sqlDAphyins = CreateProviderInsAdapter();
        SqlDataAdapter sqlDAphyspecial = CreateProviderSpecialAdapter();
        SqlDataAdapter sqlDAphyspecialproc = CreateProviderSpecialProcAdapter();
       
       
        errormessage.Text = ProviderSearch;
        errormessage2.Text = SearchProviderIns;
        errormessage3.Text = SearchProvSpecialty;

       // Create Relations - Setup Key Fields
        DataColumn doctorId = HDSDataSet.Tables["PROVIDER"].Columns["PHYSICIAN_NPI"];
        DataColumn insurId = HDSDataSet.Tables["PHYSINS"].Columns["PHYSICIAN_NPI"];
        DataColumn specialtiesId = HDSDataSet.Tables["PHYS_SPECIALTIES"].Columns["PHYSICIAN_NPI"];

        // Create Relations - Build Relation
        DataRelation specialtiesRelation = new DataRelation("specialtiesRelation", doctorId, specialtiesId);
        DataRelation insurRelation = new DataRelation("insurRelation", doctorId, insurId);
        HDSDataSet.Relations.Clear();
        HDSDataSet.Relations.Add(insurRelation);
        HDSDataSet.Relations.Add(specialtiesRelation);----------------<<<<<<<<<<<---------------Line with ERROR

it means that in your underlying tables, not all
PROVIDERs have a record in PHYS_SPECIALTIES  (or the other way around)

Additional Info
When I look at the specialtiesRelation in the Watch table the ChildKeyRelation shows Null

If I look at the insurRelation in the watch table, the ChildKeyConstraint shows to be insurRelation

NOT SURE WHY

The provider table has three records with the physician_npi set to 100, 200, 300 respectively.  The PHYS_SPECIALITIES table has three records with the same data in the physician_NPI.  Maybe I am not selecting them in my select statement.  I will check.

Thanks

When I look in my dataset using the watch command, the PHYS_SPECIALTIES tables show three records which is what I expected.  Any other ideas?

Thanks

Also, does each of the table HAVE to have a record for the corresponding table?  I did not know that was a requirement for a relation to be setup.

Thanks

try this instead

DataRelation specialtiesRelation = new DataRelation("specialtiesRelation", doctorId, specialtiesId, false);

i believe the error is because not all PHYS_SPECIALTIES records have a matching PROVIDER record, either in the selected subset, or the underlying table
