  For an index on the date to be used the dates must be specified explicitly, that is not using between or > .  

This is not quite true. If you define your secondary index with ORDER BY VALUES, Teradata will use the index for small ranges. I have used this very technique on a large table with transaction dates, thus:

create index (transaction_date) order by values on table_name;
