Problem deleting an order when using InnoDB as the MySQL Engine


Recommended Posts



I found the following problem.


1. Create an order

2. Create an invoice associated with this order

3. Make sure that this invoice has items (table tblinvoiceitems)

4. Delete the order


Now the problem:


1. It deletes everything except the items on tblinvoiceitems

2. If you are using InnoDB and then restarts the MySQL, InnoDB resets the internal auto-incremental indexes to the latest value

3. If you create a new order and a new invoice, the invoice items of this new invoice will get mixed with the items of the "deleted" invoice


Suggestion for correction:


Delete tblinvoiceitems as well


If you need any further assistance, plz let me know.
