this is a great script. But it does not work if there are Included columns. Example my index looks like this:
CREATE UNIQUE INDEX IDX_indexName ON dbo.TableName
(
Column1
, Column2
)
INCLUDE
(
Column3
, Column4
, Column5
)

But your script creates it as follows:
CREATE UNIQUE INDEX IDX_indexName ON dbo.TableName
(
Column1
, Column2
, Column3
, Column4
, Column5
)

Any clues on how to modify your script to get what I need?

Thanks!

Res Sir,

Thanks for this script.

I have i problem that it will not run for sql server 2005 databases having
compatibility level 90.

Kindly request you to send the script which will run on sql server 2005 databases having
compatibility level 90.

Thanking you in advance.

did you find a way to get the included columns?

ORDER BY SYSCOLUMNS.COLID should be ORDER BY sysindexkeys.keyno
Ordering by COlID causes wrong columns order in the key.

i contributed that script a while ago, and clearly it's only for SQL 2000;
here's someone elses script that I saved in my snippets that does INCLUDE columns;it does PRINT statements instead of a SELECT, but that's easy to modify; it alos includes the owner/schema, where my original was just assuming dbo.

I'll modify my script to do the same thing and post it after i test it a little bit.

Hi

Thanks for the original query!

I modified it to have includes.
Additionally will create composite index columns in the correct sequence, I found that your original query worked well, however the sequence that composite indexes added the columns in was incorrect.

e.g.
existing index would look like this ->
CREATE INDEX ix_123 on [TABLE] ([COL1], [COL2], [COL3][)

however the output would look like this ->
CREATE INDEX ix_123 on [TABLE] ([COL2], [COL1], [COL3])



--1. get all indexes from current db, place in temp table
select
tablename = object_name(i.id),
tableid = i.id,
indexid = i.indid,
indexname = i.name,
i.status,
isunique = indexproperty (i.id,i.name,'isunique'),
isclustered = indexproperty (i.id,i.name,'isclustered'),
indexfillfactor = indexproperty (i.id,i.name,'indexfillfactor')
into #tmp_indexes
from sysindexes i
where i.indid > 0 and i.indid < 255 --not certain about this
and (i.status & 64) = 0 --existing indexes


--add additional columns to store include and key column lists
alter table #tmp_indexes add keycolumns varchar(4000), includes varchar(4000)
go
--################################################################################################




--2. loop through tables, put include and index columns into variables
declare @isql_key varchar(4000), @isql_incl varchar(4000), @tableid int, @indexid int

declare index_cursor cursor for
select tableid, indexid from #tmp_indexes

open index_cursor
fetch next from index_cursor into @tableid, @indexid

Ah additionally I have added fill factor, and a really cool addition- with ONLINE = ON for nonclustered indexes (so you don't lock the production table when adding the index).

Note: ONLINE = ON doesn't work for clustered indexes.

Thank you very much for posting these scripts.
I had scripts for SQL 2000 but nothing that handled include columns
This is really appreciated!
