ALTER TABLE Curve_W_Sign
ADD CONSTRAINT fk_Curve
FOREIGN KEY (Support_ID)
REFERENCES Asupport_Sign(Support_ID)

Msg 547, Level 16, State 0, Line 1
The ALTER TABLE statement conflicted with the FOREIGN KEY constraint "fk_Curve". The conflict occurred in database "CNTY_GIS", table "dbo.Asupport_Sign", column 'Support_ID'.


Within my "Child" table i do have duplicates of the ID that are in the Support_Sign table which i thought should be ok? is it? The Parent Table can have multiple ID's in the "Child" Tables right?

More foreign keys in your curve_w_sign can point to same primary key in asupport_sign.

But problem will be that there are key's that don't exists.
select * from curve_w_sign  as c
where not exists (select 1 from asupport_sign a where a.support_id = c.support_i)
