Hi,

I have a cursor declared as follows:

Code:

SELECT A.COL1,
       A.EFF_DT,
       A.END_DT
  FROM  TABLEA A
WHERE A.COL1='X'
    AND A.COL2 ='Y'
ORDER BY END_DT DESC



I am required to improve the performance of this query. Also, in the code it so happens that only the first row retrieved is required. So I tried the following in a single-select statement:
Code:

SELECT A.COL1,
       A.EFF_DT,
       A.END_DT
  FROM  TABLEA A
WHERE A.COL1='X'
    AND A.COL2 ='Y'
ORDER BY END_DT DESC
FETCH FIRST 1 ROW ONLY



But now the PROBLEM is that the first row retrieved is not the same.

There is a non-unique index on COL1. Primary key is composite of several columns, none of which are used in this query.

I have even tried using MAX in query and sub-query but to no avail.

Any pointers?

Thanks & Regards,
Melwyn

Well either upgrade to version 8, where you can have an ORDER BY in a singleton select

or

go back to the CURSOR
use OPTIMIZE for 1 ROW.
