Dear group,

         I have a table foo
anshajdb=# \d foo
           Table "public.foo"
 Column  |       Type        | Modifiers
---------+-------------------+-----------
 snumber | numeric(18,0)     |
 test    | character varying |
Indexes:
    "snum_idx" btree (snumber)

when I try to do a query like
explain analyze select * from foo where snumber > 1000;

Seq Scan on foo  (cost=0.00..69.00 rows=320 width=391) (actual 
time=0.011..0.721 rows=323 loops=1)
   Filter: (snumber > 1000::numeric)
 Total runtime: 0.979 ms
(3 rows)
It do a sequence scan on table. Why it is not using the snum_idx in this 
query. Do I need to change some setting or indexes don't work on this 
types of query.


Thanks and Regards
Anshaj
