Subj:   Re: OR in a WHERE clause
 
From:   Frank Martinez

This is a much more complicated question than you think. The index (NUPI or UPI) will not be used if a full table scan would be more efficient, even if you were using an AND. But since you're going after specific values, from what appears in your example, and IN clause COULD use the NUPI, if all of the other considerations (ie selecting less than 20% of the table, etc.) are met. Of course, having statistics on the NUPI would help. The only way to tell is to examine the explain.
