Hi,

I have table1,table2,table3,table4

table1 i created with account number as primary key: worked fine
table 2 i created with account_number and account_ind as primary key and references table1.account number as foreign key : worked fine

now while creating table 3 -my primary key is accout_ number and table_4 ind and foreign key should be table2.account number and table2.account_ind
-this fails saying

DSNT408I SQLCODE = -538, ERROR: FOREIGN KEY TABCFK DOES NOT CONFORM TO THE
DESCRIPTION OF A PARENT KEY OF TABLE TABLE2

Can someone tell me what iam doing wrong.

Hi
What I believe is you can't create a foriegn key on another foreign key..
Instead of pointing to table2.account_number ...try using table1.account_number ...

Cheers,
