I use a script showing me the missing index statistics with impact and so on. I think you all know it. But sometimes I add an index which is costly, cleanup the statistics. And he shows me the index again? Why this? IS this a bug? Can somebody explain me this? Getting into details would be nice ;).

PS: I know the impact is not a good indicator, but what is the reason for this behaviour?

Sometimes you may continue to see that index because the query that needs it has columns using a different sort order than the index. And sometimes it is a bug.

First check the sort for the columns and see if that is impacting the index use.
