When using indexes in the database, the target object can be one or more file entries. The index of the database is ordered, and each index element contains the name of the sought object, as well as one or more pointers (record identifiers) to its location. The index structure is associated with a specific search key and contains records consisting of the key value and the address of the logical record in the file containing this key value. The values in the index file are sorted by the indexing field, which is usually built on the basis of one attribute.
