The query in the SQL below gets a different answer after the index is created. The answer without the index is correct.

CREATE TABLE t1(a, b);  INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(1,2);
CREATE TABLE t2(x, y);  INSERT INTO t2 VALUES(1,3);
SELECT y FROM t1, t2 WHERE a=x AND b<=y ORDER BY b DESC;
CREATE INDEX t1ab ON t1(a,b);
SELECT y FROM t1, t2 WHERE a=x AND b<=y ORDER BY b DESC;
