Forum OpenACS Q&A: Solution: Triggers!

It turns out there there was an ON DELETE trigger on the row that looked a little like this:

create trigger clean_up_other_tables
before delete on sec_sesssions
execute clean_up_other_tables_tr;

Where clean_up_other_tables_tr looked a little like this:

delete from foo where session_id = OLD.session_id;
return NULL;

So the return null was breaking the delete and when I think about it, It makes some sense.
