Need help creating a simple index on MS SQL Server

Our website is hosted by web.com.  We have an plan that provides an MS-SQL server.
Since it is a hosted server, I can not index it with SMSS as I would my local server.

I have .asp code that runs on the server which queries the LOGSEARCH table of the InternetData database.

I need four indexes:

strSearchNumber,  SResult, OrderNumber, , and SDate.  

Can anyone help?

Here's the MSDN page that shows the SQL for creating indexes: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188783.aspx

Here's a simple ASP page that works with my SQLEXPRESS 2005 database.  You'll have to change the names of everything.

Dim connectstr, oConn, ndxrslt

connectstr = "Provider=SQLNCLI;Server=YOURSERVER\SQLEXPRESS;Database=YourDB;Uid=YourID; Pwd=YourPWD;"

Set oConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
oConn.Open connectstr

' --------- create index ---------------
Set ndxrslt = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
ndxrslt.Open "CREATE INDEX Sortdex ON websitelist (Sortname)", oConn

Thanks Dave, but I'm very confused.

First, my ASP code connects to the database, and works fine.  No problems here, in fact I prefer not to change the connection strings.  They took forever to figure out!

I may just be too green at MS SQL to understand the W3schools reference.  I guess the first question is to confirm that this should work with a shared hosting plan.  In other words, I do not have Admin privileges.

Secondly, if I can create an index in code where does the code go?  I've run transact SQL queries before, but that's it.

Can I open a query and use the code from W3?

With most shared hosting service, you should have access to create database objects (tables, view, stored procedures).  Then you should be able to create indexes.

If you want to creat the index with code, just replace the transact sql queries (SELECT * from table1) with the following.

CREATE INDEX IX_strSearchNumber ON LOGSEARCH (strSearchNumber)
CREATE INDEX IX_SResult ON LOGSEARCH (SResult)
CREATE INDEX IX_OrderNumber ON LOGSEARCH (OrderNumber)
CREATE INDEX IX_SDate ON LOGSEARCH (SDate)

These will create 4 indexes on the LOGSEARCH table with the specific fields.

After changing the login info, my script works fine on my Godaddy hosting with SQLEXPRESS 2005.  I used the same login as I do for doing a SELECT or any other query.

Thanks guys!
Dave, your links taught me so much about MS SQL that I did not know,
and Ray, you sure made things easy.  I copied and pasted your links into the query area, typed Go and my problem was solved!

Appreciate the help!
