I want to create a table which has 2 columns that would only allow one of them to have value in the same row.

I tried with CHECK constraint but it not working correctly

Ex: SQL Fiddle schema example

thanks in advance


The CHECK clause is parsed but ignored by all storage engines.

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/create-table.html Use trigger instead.

  • I can't add triggers or procedures in mysql server :( , I'll check this constraint in the application side. – Darii Petru Jun 6 '16 at 10:50
