How It Affects Your App

This error indicates that a primary key column cannot contain NULL values. This means that the application must ensure that all primary key values are unique and not NULL.

Furthermore, the application may not be able to access the data correctly, as it will not be able to identify the correct row. This can lead to incorrect results or errors when trying to access the data.

How To Fix

This will display the exact syntax error that is causing the 1171 error.2. Fix the syntax error. Once you have identified the syntax error, you can fix it by editing the SQL query. For example, if the syntax error is caused by a missing comma, you can add the comma to the query.3. Test the query. After you have fixed the syntax error, you can test the query by running it again. If the query runs successfully, the 1171 error should be fixed.4. Monitor the query. To ensure that the 1171 error does not occur again, it is important to monitor the query. This can be done manually, but it is recommended to use an automated database observability tool. This tool can monitor the query and alert you if the 1171 error occurs again.
