The referencing table is referred to as the child table, and the specified child table columns are the referencing columns.

Referencing columns must have the same numbers and types of columns, data types, and sensitivity as the referenced table keys. Column-level constraints are not compared and, for standard referential integrity, compression is not allowed on either referenced or referencing columns.
