After you create a constraint on a table that checks multiple columns using a combination of NOT and AND operators, valid inserts into the table may be rejected. The insert may fail with an error message similar to the following:
Server: Msg 547, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 INSERT statement conflicted with TABLE CHECK constraint 'tbl_temp'. The conflict occurred in database 'tempdb', table '#temp____________________________________________________________000000000018'. The statement has been terminated.
