    index creation

    Can an index be created on more than one column? If so, why doesn't it cause confusion?

    Thanks for info. And sorry if I seem to be asking silly questions. I don't much help from the people around me.

    If you read the concepts guide cover-to-cover then you'll probably know a lot more those around you.
