Hi Jim
it seems that you cannot create an index with a function soyou will need to establish a
separate 12 character column which has all of the URL entries insertedalphabetically in
ascending order (fully padded with www. prefix)backup your DBALTER TABLE table ADD
TwelveCharacterURL CHAR(12),
                  ADD FOREIGN KEY 12CharacterIndex (TwelveCharacterURL);
UPDATE TABLE TABLE set TwelveCharacterURL=(LPAD(OldURLColumn,12,'www.'));
Anyone else?
