DB2 -- COMPLEX SQL JOIN

I have some SQL which does not perform on DB2.  It was originally a couple of queries joined together in Access. I pulled the queries appart and create this join.  When issued from the command center it does not error but it does not ever return.  Is there a fundamental mistake in this query?  Is there an optimal way to approach this type of join?  Here is the sql.  

Thanks,

Jeff

SELECT OPT1.OTY_DESCRIPTION,
       OPT1.ODF_SPEC_NO,
       OPT1.OPT_SPEC_SIGN,
       OPT1.OPT_DESCRIPTION,
       OPT2.ID,
       OPT2.OPT_SPEC_SIGN,
       OPT2.OPT_DESCRIPTION,
       OPT2.ODF_SPEC_NO
       FROM (SELECT DISTINCT
                    OTY_DESCRIPTION,
                    ODF_SPEC_NO,
                    OPT_SPEC_SIGN,
                    OPT_DESCRIPTION
               FROM EPOPTTYP_TBL INNER JOIN (EPOPTION_TBL INNER JOIN EPOPTDEF_TBL ON EPOPTION_TBL.ID = ODF_TO_OPT_RT) ON EPOPTTYP_TBL.ID = OPT_TO_OTY_RT
              WHERE OPT_TO_MDL_RT = 4
                AND ODF_SP_CODE = 'S'
                AND ODF_MONTH_FROM <= 200012
                AND ODF_MONTH_TO >= 200012
                AND OPT_MONTH_FROM <= 200012
                AND OPT_MONTH_TO >=200012) OPT1

Certainly is complex.

Um, is this the whole thing?  Looks like it's not all there.  If I'm counting correctly, you've not closed the nested query in the top-level FROM clause...

Also, if you could post sample definitions of the tables involved, that would help us to try running the query.

what is the datatype of OPT_MONTH_FROM and OPT_MONTH_FROM. Is it numeric or date? Maybe you have problem with the where clause.
 The statement seems ok to me.

Hi,
I would also ask:
- How many rows in each of the tables?
- What size is your bufferpool?
- Is the CPU being utilized at 100%, or is the disc thrashing, or neither, or both?  (The ways to find out differ depending on your platform, which you haven't named).
- What indexes do you have on the tables?

If you can answer those, I'll have a go at why your query is slow.

The problem has been temporarily fixed.  It is no longer a requirement.  Thanks for having a look anyway.
