Dear reader,

I remember (from 2000 version):
If the clustered key is not unique. A artificial field is added to make it unique.

How is this called?
Where is this described (webpage) ?

Is this still valid?

It's described in Books Online, I think under index architecture.

Thank you,

Using the term uniquifier, on line I found:
[url=http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/2082/understanding-and-examining-the-uniquifier-in-sql-server/][/url]

In books online I could not find the term uniquifier, neither could I find a description of the phenomem. But that could be my problem with the books on line. (I did use the old BOL a lot, but with the 'new' BOL, I tend to find the information faster on the web).

Thanks,
