Hi,

I am having below query with the index developed on fields
COL1,COL2,COL3,COL4 and COL5.

The value of COL1=COL2=COL3=SPACES.

Select * from Tab1
where COL1>=' '
AND COL2>=' '
AND COL3>=' '
AND COL4>='1001'
AND COL5>='1002 '.

will the above query do indexed search or sequential search,

regards,
Nagendran.R

I hope it will use only the index search. Because there is no negative condition present in the query(NOT condition).

what Pons said is true, they are all Stage 1 predicates, but to find out you should always use EXPLAIN, since the optimizer makes its decisions based on your DB and its statistics.

But, why are you using SELECT *? That is not good SQL. The optimizer might just decide to do a full table scan, since you are going to access everything anyway.

Learn to use Explain.

and, since you have no ORDER BY clause, there is no need to use the index to prohibit a sort.
