Can I insert null values in Foreign Key constraint.?
Kindly suggest here, Thanks in advance.
Yes. Foreign key can take Null . e.g in Emoloyee table we have employee_id and manager_id where manager_id is foregin key and CEO of the organization doesn't have manager so his manager_id will be NULL in Employee table.
One more thing.. Foreign key may reference Primary key and Unique key as well and Unique key can have NULL value so foreign key can have..
Yes we can.
There is clause on delete set null used to delete parent record without deleting child record at that time foreign key value update as null.
And directly insert null for foreign key.
