    Hi ,
    One of my developer asked me the below questions:
    Should there be index on a case statements columns?
    Should there be index on having clause columns?
    if they are also aggregate?
    Any performance benefit?
    ... Can somebody help me with this.
    Thanks

    To add to Mohammed,just go ahead and try adding indices in various combinations to see if you can benefit for them. You would also want to observe if the trade-off between data-retrieval (faster) and data-modification (slower) is acceptable for every index added.
