Wanna know how does mySQL handle relational tables?
From what i know it is dependent on the user to specify the \"relation\" in the SQL query statement. If, so that\'s not really a relational databse is it?
Basically, I\'m wondering if I hv 2 tables, users and messages. And if I delete away a user, will his/her coresponding messages be deleted in the message table as well since it\'s suppose to maintain referential intergrity? If so, how does mySQL identify the messages to delete if the \"user_id\" specified in mesasges caould be any other name? I\'m not sure if any1 is getting me.. I use to work with Access, so I\'m more familiar with that then mySQL... hope sm1 can shed sm light on this issue for me...
