The following hash index is distributed on o_orderkey (the primary index for the base table Orders) and stored in value order on o_orderdate:

     CREATE HASH INDEX ord_hidx_5 (o_orderdate) ON orders
      ORDER BY (o_orderdate);

Equivalently, you could specify ORDER BY VALUES instead of ORDER BY.

This creates an index that is equivalent in structure to the following join index:

     CREATE JOIN INDEX ord_jidx_5 AS
      SELECT (o_orderdate), (o_orderkey, orders.ROWID) 
      FROM orders
      ORDER BY o_orderdate
     PRIMARY INDEX (o_orderkey);
