    Unanswered: Public Holidays

    Hi All,

    I need to write a constraint for the following scenario.

    When inserting a new record for Table 'PracticalSession', I need to check that PracticalSession.StartDate doesn't fall on a Public Holiday.

    What would be a simple way to implement this ?
    I was thinking of creating a INSERT/UPDATE TRIGGER
    that will check against a predefined table called 'Holidays'.

    What do you guys think ?

    If you need this constraint then I would instead have a table of working days and implement a standard, declarative foreign key to that. Much simpler and less code than using triggers.
