    I guess it's something like modes [mysql.com] you're refering to (although it doesn't mention enums explicitly, the enum [mysql.com] page does mention modes).

    Well, at least they fixed it in v5. Or is that the version you already use and where it doesn't work?
    • Nope, we're on an older version. At least v5 isn't quite as crippled as older versions.

      Regrettably, the 'modes' available pre v5 don't offer protection for this. At least I can use a trigger to ... oh, wait ... sigh. (And in a totally unrelated note, the problem the 'enum' was trying to fix could have been solved with a view, but since we don't have those either, the 'enum' solution was used)
