You can use the IgnoreNulls property to specify that records with Null values in the indexed fields not be included in the index.


SettingVisual BasicDescription
YesTrueRecords that contain Null values in the indexed fields aren't included in the index.
NoFalse(Default) Records that contain Null values in the indexed fields are included in the index.

You can set this property by using the Indexes window of table Design view or Visual Basic.

To access the Ignore Nulls property of an index by using Visual Basic, use the DAO IgnoreNulls property.

You can define an index for a field to facilitate faster searches for records indexed on that field. If you allow Null entries in the indexed field and expect to have many of them, set the Ignore Nulls property for the index to Yes to reduce the amount of storage space that the index uses.
