Hi Dan,

Thanks for yur response. Does it makes sense to create an index on a
primary key that is my smallest field ?

Your best bet is to create an index on the smallest column you can find
(maybe even create a char(1) and leave it empty), and "SELECT COUNT(*)
FROM innotable USE INDEX (smallcolumn)".  That way mysql only has to
scan a small secondary index instead of the main table index.
