Check Properties allows you to add a new check constraint or edit an existing one. It is available from Table Editor, or from the corresponding nodes of the explorer tree.

Specify an expression producing a Boolean result which new or updated rows must satisfy for an insert or update operation to succeed. Expressions evaluating to True or Unknown succeed. In case any row of an insert or update operation produce a FALSE result an error exception is raised and the insert or update does not alter the database.
