Hi Everyone,

What's the T-sql to add an include column to an existing index?

Many thanks

You will have to drop the existing index and then create the index with the INCLUDED columns
The link below can help you with the syntax to create the index with INCLUDED columns

I don't have 2005 any more, but interestingly on 2012 at least, you can just issue a CREATE INDEX using the same index name without dropping it first!

    You can in most, if not all versions, by adding the DROP_EXISTING clause to the create index.

    Thanks Gail - I hadn't spotted that

    DROP_EXISTING = ON

    was indeed included in the CREATE INDEX script I was looking at!
