This is a query that run in seconds for all my colleagues, but takes minutes for me. What might be the cause of this, and how do I correct it? (apart from the suggestion that it doesn't like me) Are there personal settings that affect my query performance? I am running this on a lightly loaded quad Xeon server with 4GB RAM, and as soon as I run it, the task manager shoots up to 100% and stays there, while for others the results come back in a few seconds.
