I searched on creating non clustered index with included columns for sybase database. But I don't think "include" is allowed while creating index. Is there any equivalent in sybase?

No. Sybase doesn't have any equivalent to the INCLUDE statement.

So there is no concept of having included columns in non clustered index in sybase? Thanks for answer Simon – Delta Mar 21 '12 at 13:28
No, the equivalent would be just to have all the columns in the index, even the ones that aren't being searched/filtered on. Bit of a waste of space, but since it only affects internal (non-leaf nodes) of the B-tree index (and it's only useful on some indexes, not all), I can't see it being a high priority feature to be added. – Simon Righarts Mar 21 '12 at 20:29
