Is it possible to index a database with a date field?  I have a database that has 2 million records and would like to search records by the transaction date.  Using the ADO seek will work but takes a long time.  Not sure how to do about this, if it possible at all.  I am using VB 6.0 with ADO.  The database is an Advantage Database.  I can also use SQL too, I guess.  Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

Open the database with the Advantage database console, select the table, click Add Index and select the date field.

Note, that date fields may include a time-of-day component and might not give you the results you want if you expect day granularity.
