WORKID  NUMBER
 BatchID NUMBER
 SubID  NUMBER
 EmailAddr VARCHAR2(80)

It depends on how you would run your script. Always ensure 1st column of EACH table on Where clause is INDEXED

Order of column in the where clause doesn't matter.

If you have any combination of columns in the query and they are 'or' then I would probably look at a single index on each individual column.

Each table should have a Clustered Index [usually id column of integer type] which sort the data physically. It will also provides the unique information to the engine.

Other columns the where clause - Consider creating Non clustered indexes. But these one depends on the query you have written. What columns we can choose..how many times this query is going to run against the Db, etc.

How many indexes you can create - because they are not free , they take space , you will have to maintain them and if DML happens on the table , then restructuring of the tree and in return you will get data quickly.

So overall we can say IT Depends..

Without seeing your query (or queries?) it is very difficult for us to make recommendations.  Even if you post your queries, you may also have to tell us something about the number of distinct values in these columns: emailAddr, worked, batchid and subid.

If the number of distinct values in these columns is close to the number of records, then a separate index on each of them may be helpful *IF* your query or queries refer to each of them.
