Default Datetime Field as index


Im wondering if a datetime field be indexed to improve my application's performance when comparing fetching rows based on date attributes. Like I want to fetch all rows that are older by a particular date and have them sorted by date.

Yes, I have done alot of times.
I even used this index to populate a default integer value
in a field and a username. This way I would know how many
times a user has transact a table/database.
Hope this helps.
