Problems 11–14 are based on the following query:

SELECT P_CODE, SUM(LINE_UNITS)
FROM LINE
GROUP BY P_CODE
HAVING SUM(LINE_UNITS) > (SELECT MAX(LINE_UNITS) FROM LINE);

Should you create an index on P_CODE? If so, write the SQL command to create the index. If not, explain your reasoning.

Program Plan Intro

Indexes:

Indexing is a technique that is used in SQL for optimizing the performance.

  • Indexes are used when a small set of rows needs to be selected from the table that is large in size.
  • The selection of rows is made by specifying conditions.

Rules for using indexes:

The below are the rules how the indexes can be used

  • When an indexed column appears within itself in the search criteria of “WHERE” or “HAVING” clause.
  • When an indexed column appears within itself in “GROUP BY” or “ORDER BY” clause.
  • When the indexed column is applied with functions MAX and MIN.
  • When the indexed column’s data sparsity is high.

Syntax for creating INDEX:

The below mentioned is the syntax for creating the index:

CREATE [UNIQUE]INDEX indexname ON tablename(column1 [, column2])

Explanation of Solution

Creating an index:

Yes, it is necessary to create an index for the column “P_CODE”.

Reason:

The reason for creating index for the column “P_CODE” will aid in executing the query properly.

  • Most of the database create index automatically for the foreign key columns.
  • The index can also be manually created using the query...
