Key Definiton using SQL

Key Definiton using SQL

Key Definiton using SQL

I am define all my tables with sql statements.  I can't seem to get the syntax right to create a NON Case Sensitive key.  My code is

Create UNIQUE INDEX ByDesc in dictionary ON Zones (ZoneDescription NO CASE,PubNumber,ZoneCode) #

Do I use NO CASE or is there something else I have missed?  If I use NO CASE, where does it go in the above so that the ZoneDescription is treated with regard to case?


RE: Key Definiton using SQL

Actually, you set it at the CREATE TABLE level and not the CREATE INDEX.  For example:
CREATE TABLE test (f1 char(10) case, f2 char(10))#
create index idxF1 on test (f1)#
create index idxF2 on test (f2)#

The statements above will create a table and will have two indexes.  The first will be on F1 and will be case insensisitive while the second will be case sensitive on F2.
