A Second March ‘Index Analysis’ Update

Unicorn Create IndexAfter this month’s Index Analysis update, I was contacted by a reader about the index analysis script.  Reader Dick Baker let me know that he found and had a fix for an issue with the missing_index_impact column.  Thanks to Dick for this fix.

If you find issues or have suggestions for changes to the script, please send them to me.  I’ve missed providing credit for a few other changes in the past, going forward, I’ll be sure to provide that credit.


The updates to the script in this release are the following:

  • Fixed data type on missing_index_impact (Credit: Dick Baker)
