INF: Use of Multiple Unique Indexes by dbqual in Browse Mode

ID: Q45255

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft SQL Server Programmer's Toolkit, version 4.2

If a table has multiple unique indexes, dbqual chooses the first unique index encountered in SYSINDEXES. Because a clustered index always has indid=1 and because sysindexes is maintained in indid order within index, a clustered index will be chosen over all other indexes if it is also unique. If there are no unique indexes, the first primary key in SYSKEYS will be chosen.
