Why is this the wrong way round?

I believe you said you have a table Sales with a column Dealer that's
pointing to table Dealers and a Dealer-record cannot be deleted if
there are any Sales records (that is, records pointing to records in the
Dealers table) - exactly the right way round.

If this is not the case, show some table metadata.
