Hi

It is only about SQL (DDL) and to be more specific - about PostgreSQL.

I have to create a table coordinates with rows: x integer, y integer, id integer, data_set integer. And I allso must specify that in one data_set, there is no dublicated set of coordinates.

My first attempt was like that:

But this one fails, because it does not care about data_set_ID.

So if there is any SQL guru out there, help is very welcome. How would you complete this, or what would you add to the code above?


thanx

The solution is more simple than I could excpect in my wildest dreams:

UNIQUE (x, y, data_set_id)
