How to speed up update table against views

Hi experts,

I have a table, table_1, which contained half million records. I am updating it with more than 10 views once at a time. And it takes me forever. I didn't create any index for those views. I do created a cluster index and copule index for the table. One of the updating scripts like the following:

/****/
UPDATE table_1
SET table.product = 'Book'
FROM  table_1 ,vw_2005  
WHERE (table_1.ACCOUNT_ID = vw_2005.ACCOUNT_ID)
       AND (table_1.[YEAR] = 2005)
       AND (table_1.product IS NULL)
 

My question is
A. how can I speed up the update process?

B. Should I add those options to those views?
"SET NUMERIC_ROUNDABORT OFF
GO
SET ANSI_PADDING,ANSI_WARNINGS,CONCAT_NULL_YIELDS_NULL,ARITHABORT,QUOTED_IDENTIFIER,ANSI_NULLS ON
GO"

C.  should I add the statment "WITH   SCHEMABINDING " to the create view line?  
Thanks,

Hi hardikbeit,

Do you mean add
"SET NUMERIC_ROUNDABORT OFF
GO
SET ANSI_PADDING,ANSI_WARNINGS,CONCAT_NULL_YIELDS_NULL,ARITHABORT,QUOTED_IDENTIFIER,ANSI_NULLS ON
GO"
and also add "SET NOCOUNT ON in the beginning and SET NOCOUNT OFF at last" ?

Hi LIULIHUA,
that's right.

As per my knowledge without this command the SQL Query Analyzer gives total no of records updated. There is no need to see howmany rows updated each times, it decrease performance due to switching between sql query processor and IO.

Hi hardikbeit ,

if I don't want to set up index for the view then the only thing I need to set up is "SET NOCOUNT ON in the beginning and SET NOCOUNT OFF at last", am i right? because set up an indexed view are sort of complecated, what do you think?

Hi Liulihua,
Yes you are right.

Index View is really a good option to improve your performance.

If you want to know how to create and use, check this link:
http://www.sqlteam.com/item.asp?ItemID=1015

you can improve performance with View Indexes, if applications that do any of the following may benefit as well:
-Joins and aggregations of big tables
-Repeated patterns of queries
-Repeated aggregations on the same or overlapping sets of columns
-Repeated joins of the same tables on the same keys
