This is my first time using LibreOffice Base and in case I'm not very clear

transition for an old lady.

I'm creating a table and I want a field to be of type Integer and Not Null.
(Note: I already have another field in the same table that is with the same
configuration, ie Integer/Not Null, and I'm editing an existing table to add
this field.)

I keep getting the error message:

Error while saving the table design
Column constraints are not acceptable in statement [ALTER TABLE "Companion
Subspecies" ADD "Help Type" INTEGER NOT NULL]

Could someone kindly point me in the right direction to correct my problem?

Thank you.

Seems like I guessed wrong twice. The problem that you have has to do with adding a field that is NOT NULL. When you add a field to a table, it has no values until entries are made. So, selecting "Yes" for Entry Required causes the error. Create the field with "NO" selected for "Entry Required." Enter the appropriate data making sure all the rows of the table have an entry for it. Now edit the table by setting "Entry Required" to Yes.
