Hi all,


You need to determine that you know something absolutely for certain. 
Otherwise, you are shooting in the dark. And, assuming that you experiement 
and get "good" results, you will know neither why it works or how much short 
of optimal you really are.

Start with:
>From Table_One;

If this takes too long, then you have it down to DB set up or HW 
configuration or SW/HW incompatibility - or transmission if on a network. If 
you still have a record of the previous DB and system configurations, that 
would tend to (not for certain) eliminate those.

If that goes well, select a non ID field. Then both. Then do the same with 
Table_Two. Eventually, you will come upon the slowdown and that will narrow 
your search.
