Because the tables in a database are accessed in a variety of queries, the distribution of data within a table can affect how successful an index is. By updating the index statistics, the most efficient way of accessing the data will be selected.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.

'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server

'Reference the AdventureWorks database.
Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks")

'Update the index statistics on the database.

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
