SQL Indexes

All,

I have a SQL table that is truncated and repopulated with data nightly.

The table also has an non-clustered index on the date field.

When the SQL table is truncated and repopulated with data nightly, does the index need to be reorganized to be effective?

Truncate deallocates all pages and when the new data loads physically creates new btree for your table. Since the tree is new we have zero fragmentation issue. So in this way data is organized. Note , when you truncate index will be there even there will be no data.
