C. Creating a unique nonclustered index

The following example creates a unique nonclustered index on the Name column of the Production.UnitMeasure table. The index will enforce uniqueness on the data inserted into the Name column.

Copy
USE AdventureWorks2008R2;
GO
IF EXISTS (SELECT name from sys.indexes
             WHERE name = N'AK_UnitMeasure_Name')
    DROP INDEX AK_UnitMeasure_Name ON Production.UnitMeasure;
GO
CREATE UNIQUE INDEX AK_UnitMeasure_Name 
    ON Production.UnitMeasure(Name);
GO

Open in new window

If you don't mention UNIQUE, it won't create UNIQUE index.

you syntax will create a nonclustered nonunique index

create NONCLUSTERED index ABC_IDX on mytable(mycolumn)  = nonclustered nonunique

create UNIQUE  NONCLUSTERED index ABC_IDX on mytable(mycolumn)  = nonclustered unique

create CLUSTERED index ABC_IDX on mytable(mycolumn)  = clustered nonunique

create unique  CLUSTERED index ABC_IDX on mytable(mycolumn)  = clustered unique
