Snippet Name: INDEXES: SORT and NOSORT

Description: When creating an index, the default method Oracle uses to sort the index is in ascending order (SORT). However, if the rows are already stored in the database in ascending order you can use the NOSORT clause to skip the sorting process. Oracle will check to make sure that this is in fact the case and will return an error if the rows aren't actually in ascending order already. Normally you should use this clause when you first create or load the table.

If neither SORT or NOSORT is provided, Oracle will use SORT as the clause.
