13.2.6 of the 5.0.4 manual says "The CHECK clause is parsed but ignored by all storage engines."

Not null is checked :
mysql> insert into employee value('name 1',null);
ERROR 1048 (23000): Column 'salary' cannot be null

But not a not '0' check constraint.

Selon Rhino <rhino1@sympatico.ca>:

  
Are you sure this kind of constraint is supported in MySQL 4.1?

I'm not saying they aren't, I just don't remember. Unless you're sure they
are, you should check the manual.

  Hi, I need to do a constraint that checks if the field 'salary' of one
table is not smaller than zero. Like:

  create table employee (

     name varchar(30),
     salary numeric(10,2)

     constraint  ck_salary check (salary > 0)
  );

  What´s the sintaxe? I'am not finding the correct sintaxe to do this
constraint.

  I'm using MySQL 4.1
