  2. Hi Pinal,
    We have 1 clustered and 249 non clustered indexes in sql server 2000. So is there any specific reason that we have only 249 nonlustered indexs.

    Thanks in Advance…

    • We have 1 clustered and 249 non clustered indexes in sql server 2005, not in SQL server 2000. I SQL 2000 limit is 1 clustered and 15 non clustered indexes.

      No of indexes decrease your performance of insert, update & delete operations.
