I am getting a constraint violation when inserting a record in a table.
So, I dropped the constraint in question since the intent is to be able to insert multiple records.

alter table table_name drop constraint constrain_Name

I look at the list of constraints for the table in question, the constraint has been dropped.

Still I cannot insert the record: same constraint violation comes up.

ANy ideas ?

There are SQL commands you can perform to insert with the constraint disabled and then re-enable it after the insert. It's not generally a good practice, though, and I only use for bulk restoring of a database, ergo restoring 20 tables with thousands of records in a single script.
