Hello,
am studying out of a microsoft sql book for microsoft access- think it was written using 2003-
I am using access 2007-
Tried to use [on update cascade] and [on delete cascade] commands-
and access giving errors -
the book states that if not using sql 92 - some commands may not work-
what sql version does access 2007 use and should these commands work?
thank you

Click the Windows button
Then click the Access Options button
Select Object Designers
About 1/2 way down the page there is a SQL Server Compatible Syntax, with a checkbox.SQL 92

The default is *not* ANSI 92 ... but, you can .. specify that.

SQL
Those command are not supported in the default mode - as far as I know.

one question:
If I enable this at work- and if I used one of commands in a database i create- would the other computers with access 2007 - (that this is disabled on) - not be able to recognize the commands?
thanks

Not sure.  I would *try* it to *be* sure ...
The setting implies ... it goes with the db ... but ?

Why do you need to do this - just curious ?

to go along with dmx question.  I assume these commands simply provide the same referential integrity you can build into your database structure by building the table relationships and defining the cascading properties in the relationships.  Why not just implement this in that manner?
