I first focused on the reference to a unique constraint rather than the primary key, thinking that was the issue of the question. I almost got it wrong because of that, as I had first not given enough attention to the other details of the code.

I guess that many people will get this question right for the wrong reasons. (Many people think that a foreign key should always reference the primary key).

Can someone please point me towards the place where the documentation explains that a foreign key column must have the same length as the column that it references? I can't see it in the link to MSDN provided in the answer.

The Create Table documentation here: [url=http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-in/library/ms174979.aspx][/url] does say that that both columns must both be of the same data type, but it doesn't mention length.

This is what I get for trusting that voice in my head that says, "No, that's way too obvious." Crazy
