Hello,

I have a question on Oracle Database Design.
I have a parent table with "Sales_Order_Head" column and this column is a PRIMARY KEY in this parent table. I also have a child table with "Sales_Order_Line" column and this column is a Foreign Key to the primary key column in the parent table.
Now my requirement is that when I insert a record in the primary key column - "Sales_Order_Head" of the parent table, I want that simultaneously a record should get inserted in "Sales_Order_Line" column of the child table. I know that this can be implemented programmatically but I have to implement this at design level.
How can I do this, please suggest me.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Regards,
Suranjita

Why did you post this in the PL/SQL-experts forum if you're not interested in a programming-solution?

I don't get it when you say "I know that this can be implemented programmatically but I have to implement this at design level."
Could you please explain?

I have to imeplement this fact while creating the parent and child tables - that when a record is inserted in the "Sales_Order_Head" column of the Parent Table, simultaneously a record gets inserted in the "Sales_Order_Line" column of the Child Table.
I am aware that this can be implemented afterwards programmatically, however the requirement is that I have to implement this above fact while creation of parent and child tables.
Please suggest me how to do this.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Regards,
Suranjita.

One way out is to indicate the mandatory child record requirement in your ER Diagram design and leave it later for the programmer to do the actual coding.

In the ER Diagrammer, create 2 entities, 1 for the master and 1 for the child. When you create a relation between the two, use the M:1 (mandatory to mandatory) Relationship. This would be a an icon that you'll see attached to this reply.

As a system analyst, I use that to indicate at least 1 child record to be mandatorily created whenever a Parent record comes into existence.

Of course, you'll need to back this up by a subsequent code which reflects such a design.

Hope this helps.
