Hello,
I am running 1 query against SQL Server 2005 and Its taking too much time to return and Eating up all the CPU. The problem with the SQL is we have 2 different database on 1 server and doing a Join and query looks something like this...

and seems like A.TNId = B.NPA + B.DBB + B.RDV is causing all the trouble.

Can someone recommend any better approach to handle this without making changes to db structure? B is really big table with some million records in it.
Select Distinct TNid from db1.dbo.Table A ,  Db2.dbo.Table1 B where 

A.CreateDate > b.CreateDate

And A.TNId = B.NPA + B.DBB + B.RDV

do you have indexes built on the fields in your where clause?

test it after creating an include index   createDate Include (NPA, DBB, RDV)

or else if you can alter the table, add a computed column for  B.NPA + B.DBB + B.RDV and index createdDate (newComputedColumn )

It doesn't appear that you are using a Join statement.  This can really cause things to slow down.
Try the code in the attached snippet.
 

Select Distinct TNid from db1.dbo.Table A 

JOIN  Db2.dbo.Table1 B ON And A.TNId = B.NPA + B.DBB + B.RDV

where A.CreateDate > b.CreateDate

Oop, I left the And in.  Let's try that again.
 

Select Distinct TNid from db1.dbo.Table A 

JOIN  Db2.dbo.Table1 B ON A.TNId = B.NPA + B.DBB + B.RDV

where A.CreateDate > b.CreateDate

Does TNid appear more then once in table 'A'? If not get rid of the "Distinct". If it does can they have a different CreateDate?
