I am managing mysql 5.6 with phpMyadmin 2.8.1 which are hosted by IPower (web hosting company).

I have created 2 tables and have set them up as InnoDB.

The tables created names are: users and patient_id.

In the patient_id table I have added a column to be used as the foreign key that will be related to the "id" column in the users table.

I have indexed this column in the patient_id table.

When I go into the relationship view of the table and try to setup the relationship , I get "No Index found for the column" even though I have indexed it already!

I have attached screenshots of the database structure and the error message.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Can you post the designer view of your database?
You can get it by clicking on the database name on the left, then clicking on "Designer".

I ended up on creating the tables on a test mysql server and setting up the relationship, then I exported the database and imported it into the production server. Now the tables are related.

Thank you.
