Specifies whether an index should be created on a field.
Settings and Return Values
Sets or returns a Boolean value that indicates whether an index should be created.
An index can improve the performance of operations that find or sort values in a Recordset. The index is internal to ADO; you cannot explicitly access or use it in your application.
To create an index on a field, set the Optimize property to True. To delete the index, set this property to False.
