Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a partitioned table that contains a nonclustered index in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2.

  • You create a clustered index that is based on the first column in the partitioned table.

  • The table uses the partition key as the first column.

  • You create a filter on the partition key.

  • You try to create a filtered statistic for one of the columns.

In this scenario, it takes longer than expected to create the statistic.


  • The query plan that generates a CREATE STATISTICS statement indicates that the query performed a full scan on all the partitions.

  • If you create another nonclustered index, it does not take longer than expected to create the statistics for columns that are not related to the nonclustered indexes.
