hi,

i am having an SQL query which in turn to be used as an Unload card in BMC Unload utility. Currently mu query is taking long time to execute and it is not giving me an output. I have used an order by clause in the same and i believe it is causing the problem. Because when i try executing the same with out the order by cluase it get executed fast. Can anyone suggest me some other way to implement this query and to optimise it.

the query is as follows: i want to extract 3 fields from 2 tables when mortgage value in both tables are same and also for the maximum value of application sequence.

UNLOAD DIRECT NO
SELECT M1.MORTGAGE
,N1.APPROPVAL
,N1.DATE
FROM TABLE1 M1
,TABLE2 N1
WHERE N1.APPLSEQ=(SELECT MAX(N2.APPLSEQ) FROM TABLE2 N2
WHERE N2.MORTGAGE=M1.MORTGAGE)
ORDER BY MORTGAGE
WITH UR;

Any pointers to the same will be appreciated.

Regards
Minu.

Have you attempted to use the DB2 function EXPLAIN? Look it up in the manual and see what that gets you. Also are you doing an order by M1.Mortgage or N1.Mortgage.

Your syntax looks a little funny, try this and see if you there is any improvment:
Code:
SELECT M1.MORTGAGE
,N1.APPROVAL
,N1.DATE
FROM TABLE1 M1,TABLE2 N1
WHERE N1.MORTGAGE=M1.MORTGAGE
AND N1.APPLSEQ = (SELECT MAX(N2.APPLSEQ) FROM TABLE2 N2)
ORDER BY M1.MORTGAGE
WITH UR;

Correction:
Code:

SELECT M1.MORTGAGE
,N1.APPROVAL
,N1.DATE
FROM TABLE1 M1,TABLE2 N1
WHERE N1.MORTGAGE=M1.MORTGAGE
AND N1.APPLSEQ = (SELECT MAX(N2.APPLSEQ) FROM TABLE2 N2)
ORDER BY M1.MORTGAGE
FOR READ ONLY
WITH UR;
