unique key

Scroll Prev Top Next More

A column or set of columns that uniquely identify a row; in other words, each value in a unique-key column is unique. A unique-key constraint prevents duplicate (non-unique) and null values from being entered. The only difference between a unique key and a primary key is that you can define multiple unique keys per table.
