I have a sql table with a secondary index.  This secondary index is also unique but uses multiple fields.  Using variables to find the one record, should I still use a sql select statement or is there a better way?  I am using C# in visual studio 2008. Yes, I am a beginner.

Your SQL select query normally makes use of the indexes that are available based on the fields in the select statement by default, however you can force the index to be used. EG:

SELECT column_list FROM table_name WITH (INDEX (index_name) [, ...])

Great, I figured it was the most effecient way, but I wanted to check I hadn't missed an area of C# that allows me to get a single record.  Thanks!
