Should there be only one foreign key in a table? The following code gives two Primary Keys: OrderID, PartNo.

OrderID int not null,
PartNo varchar(10) not null,
Description varchar (25) not null,
UnitPrice money not null,
Qty int not null,
Constraint PKOrderDetails
Primary Key (OrderID, PartNo),
Constraint FKOrderContainsDetails
Foreigh Key (OrderID)

There aren't any restrictions on the number of foreign keys in a table save for the number of columns in the table itself.
