Use the MIN aggregate function to compute the minimum value in the column or column expression, specified by value_expression. MIN is valid for character data as well as numeric data. For a character expression, MIN returns the lowest sort order.

Each aggregate join index must be created with a COUNT(*) or COUNT(value_expression). If you do not specify such an expression, Vantage adds a COUNT(*) by default.

You cannot specify a MIN function in the definition of a column-partitioned join index.
