Hi EXPEXGSK,

Your INSERT statement attempted to add a row to a table.  The contents of that row were illegal, based on the rules of your database.

A FOREIGN KEY is a rule that requires that a data value in one table is matched by a value in another table.  In this case, there is a rule that states that the value for FACILPROFIL04_C must also be in another table.  You'll have to check the FOREIGN KEYS in your database to see exactly which table is involved.

A pretty good IBM writeup on basic constraints (A foreign key is one of several kinds of constraints) is here:

  http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/data/library/techarticle/dm-0401melnyk/index.html

The section on FOREIGN KEYS is about 3/4 the way down the page.


Good Luck,
Kent

i am assuming that you are trying to figure out what SQLCODE -530 is. The actual description of this error is:

"THE INSERT OR UPDATE VALUE OF FOREIGN KEY constraint name IS INVALID".

So basically, you are trying to insert a value into the child table for which there is no entry in the parent table.

As obvious as this sounds, is this what you are looking for?

Essentially, it means that column FACILIPROFIL04_C has a referential constraint on it that only allows it to be a certain set of values (defined in some other table).

Therefore, you'll need to research the constraint to see what table holds the values. Then, make sure the value you're inserting matches one of those.
