I have a query that on average takes 10 seconds to load through mysql, but in php, takes almost a minute.  I've done an 'Explain' on the table and have attached the screenshot.  I have also taken the dw_quote_main and saved the structure.  Anything else that is needed, p lease let me know.

Hi t3ch,


Just for a test, create a view that looks like the query, then select the view.  It should return the results in a time close to the direct query of MySQL.

I'm sorry, but I'm having trouble doing that, it keeps telling me that I have a duplicate column.

Hi T3ch,

That means that two columns in the query are unnamed, or that two columns have the same name.  You'll want to clean that up even if you don't wrap it in a view.
