Hi Guys,
I have a big audit database with a timestamp column (AUDIT_TIMESTAMP) containing dates of the form: 26/01/2007 12:51:07.123

If i range partition this by date e.g.

(PARTITION <TABLE> VALUES LESS THAN (to_date('12/05/2007', 'DD/MM/YYYY')) ...

I want to create a local prefixed index which only accounts for the date part of the partition key (audit_timestamp).

if i just use "audit_timestamp, col_a, col_b" as the index then it won't work i dont think because it'll take into account the time part of audit timestamp and since these are unique this will just be the data sorted by time. What i want is the data sorted by the date part of audit_timestamp and then further by col_a and col_b.

Is what i'm saying possible and if so is it efficient?

(and also the field has to be a timestamp field, i know this would be easier if i just had a date field but i'd rather not change the table schema if possible ... )
