Day 86 – Indexes
These are database objects that are used to improve the performance of queries by providing faster access to data. Indexes can be created on one or more columns of a table, and can be used to speed up searches, sorts, and joins.
CREATE INDEX idxCustomerName ON Customers (CustomerName) SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE CustomerName = 'ABC Company'
In this example, an index named
idxCustomerName is created on the
CustomerName column of the
Customers table. The index is then used to speed up a query that retrieves all customers with the name “ABC Company”.
