You in deed have an index but what is not shown is the unique key which must be set on one of the fields on the table. The unique key is not required so if it is not necessary, remove its option.

Gregory MillerGeneral ManagerCommented:
You would need to export the schema of your table and post it here first. The name of the key will be contained within but your screen caps do not show it. I will need that info before I could tell you anything specific.

Also, take this time to back up your datatables...

If you notice, line 32 defines one of my Index fields and Line 32 also defines an index field but with Unique status. This means that no values may be duplicated in this field.

Since I do not know your Unique Key entries names I will give you a very generic command to do this...

ALTER TABLE <TABLENAME> DROP INDEX <KEYNAME>

The <KEYNAME> may be the same as a column name but it can be totally different. YMMV...

!!! Make a backup before you try this !!!

but this is not my table and i have 2 keys not one

Gregory MillerGeneral ManagerCommented:
I will write the command but you will need to post the definition for the schema as I showed you in a prior comment. If this is not possible, you can take the generic command I have given you and modify it for your specific needs. Add your table name and add your unique key name.. . voila...

!!! BACKUP your tables first...

For better or worse, computer programming is an activity that requires meticulous attention to detail.  Let's try to deconstruct this a little bit.  You have shown us several identical versions of the same INSERT query.

insert into switchStatus (
  switch
, port
, status
, limit
) values (
  'T01'
, '1007'
, 'notPresent'
, '0'
) on duplicate key update 
status='notPresent' 
limit='0'
;

Open in new window

What this seems to be saying is that you want to INSERT data, but if you encounter a duplicate key, you want to UPDATE two columns.  If the query INSERTS data, it does so because it did not encounter a duplicate key.  Perhaps there is no key on the switch and/or port columns?  The screen shot does not show any keys.

Also, in the screen shot, there are columns named statuse and limite but no columns named status or limit.  The query should have failed if you attempted to INSERT or UPDATE columns that did not exist in the table.  You might want to check and see if you're using the right data and the right script.
