Sasi,

Not enough information.

It really depend on how the JOIN or Sub query are implemented. Either could be better or not.

For a determination you would have to supply the SQL, Table definitions, and indexes

Hi Sasi,

I assume you are asking about the diffrence between a Join and an exists check for a matching record..

From the feedbacks I ve got from DBA's, it seems an EXISTS check is better if do not require a column from the table to be selected. But if you need a column from the table to be selected, better to use JOIN.

Please let me know if I am not answering your question.

Thx,
Prajesh
