What Is CHECK Constraint In SQL?

  • SQL CHECK constraint limits the range of a value which is placed in a database table column.
  • SQL CHECK constraint can be applied/added on single column level as well as table level.
  • SQL CHECK constraint uses different conditions (>, < ==) etc to enforce¬†a table column to accept only values according to that condition.
  • SQL CHECK constraint validates the table column.

Example: MySQL

country_id INT NOT NULL,
country_name VARCHAR(200) NOT NULL,
country_location VARCHAR(200),
country_zipcode INT(60),
CHECK (country_id>0)

Example: SQL Server, Oracle, MS Access

country_id int NOT NULL CHECK (country_id>0),
country_name varchar(200) NOT NULL,
country_location varchar(200),
country_zipcode int


  • In above examples a CHECK constraint is added on country_id column in country table.
