Lesson 3: Set a NOT NULL constraint on a column

Use the following procedure to add a NOT NULL constraint to a column.

 To add and remove a constraint on a column
  1. In the left pane of Sybase Central, double-click Tables.

  2. Click Products, and then click the Columns tab in the right pane.

  3. Select the ProductName column.

  4. From the File menu, choose Properties.

  5. Click the Constraints tab and select Values Cannot Be NULL.

    By default, columns allow NULLs, but it is good practice to declare columns NOT NULL unless there is a good reason to allow NULLs. See NULL value.

  6. Click OK.

    This constraint means that for each row added to the Products table, the ProductName column must have a value.

  7. From the File menu, choose Save.
