Dear all,

we have a drop primary key statement for a table:

alter table Insight_20101202_DataAudit.tblSale drop primary key ;   

Open in new window


but the error is:

Can't DROP 'PRIMARY'; check that column/key exists

Open in new window


the schema of the table tblSale is :

As the error says, you do not have a primary key.

If you want to remove the unique key ID, you can do it like this:

DROP INDEX  `ID` ON tblsale

Open in new window

simple: the table does not HAVE any primary keys, only indexes (keys) and 1 unique key (which does not apply for a "primary" key...

wait, my logic seems see the primary key index in the same way as the unique key, should that be correct ?

my logic is :

select  count(COLUMN_NAME) FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS 
WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA =Trigger_databasename AND TABLE_NAME = trigger_tablename and COLUMN_KEY= "PRI"  into HasPrimaryKey;

       IF HasPrimaryKey> 0 THEN 	
   /* set drop_PrimaryKey_statement= CONCAT(' alter table Audit_info.',Trigger_databasename, '_DBAudit_',trigger_tablename,' drop primary key ; 
   alter table Audit_info.',trigger_tablename,' drop primary key ;'); */
   
     set drop_PrimaryKey_statement= CONCAT(' alter table Audit_info.',Trigger_databasename, '_DBAudit_',trigger_tablename,' drop primary key ; '); 
  

Open in new window


so if I see column_key is PRI key when I scan field to field, then I will generate that drop primary key statement, but some times, some database, will use the unique key as primary key.
