Query returns System.OutOfMemoryException

Hi experts,
Using SQL reporting services 2005, Creating reports with Visual Studio 2005.

I have a report which fails when running for a large period of time. (More than 6 months).
Runs fine for time periods smaller than 6 months, so I guess it comes down to number of records returned.

When run for a full year, the SQL Query returns about 1 million records and is executed in 56 seconds using SQL Management Studio.

The Query goes like this:

 
SELECT     VP_TOTALS.PERSONFULLNAME, VP_TOTALS.PERSONNUM, VP_TOTALS.LABORLEVELNAME1, VP_TOTALS.LABORLEVELNAME2, 
VP_TOTALS.LABORLEVELNAME3, VP_TOTALS.PAYCODENAME, VP_TOTALS.APPLYDATE, VP_TOTALS.TIMEINSECONDS, VP_TOTALS.PAYCODEID, VP_TOTALS.LABORLEVELDSC2, VP_TOTALS.LABORLEVELDSC1, ASSIGNPAYRULE.EXPIRATIONDTM, ASSIGNPAYRULE.PAYRULEID AS Expr1
FROM VP_TOTALS INNER JOIN MYWTKEMPLOYEE ON VP_TOTALS.EMPLOYEEID = MYWTKEMPLOYEE.EMPLOYEEID INNER JOIN
ASSIGNPAYRULE ON VP_TOTALS.EMPLOYEEID = ASSIGNPAYRULE.EMPLOYEEID
WHERE     (VP_TOTALS.APPLYDATE >= CONVERT(DATETIME, '2010-01-01 00:00:00', 102)) AND (VP_TOTALS.APPLYDATE <= CONVERT(DATETIME, '2010-12-31 00:00:00', 102)) AND (VP_TOTALS.PAYCODEID = 101 OR
                      VP_TOTALS.PAYCODEID = 102 OR
                      VP_TOTALS.PAYCODEID = 103 OR

ORDER BY VP_TOTALS.LABORLEVELNAME1, VP_TOTALS.LABORLEVELNAME2, VP_TOTALS.PERSONFULLNAME, VP_TOTALS.APPLYDATE

I have used the WHERE clausules to limit the number of records returned.

Can anyone see a way to optimize this query so the report runs?
The report contains two groups and no details section:
Group 1 = Fields!LABORLEVELNAME1.Value
Group 2 = Fields!LABORLEVELNAME1.Value & Fields!LABORLEVELNAME2.Value

Thanks,
Bjorn

You should find the query below a tad more efficient, especially if you index it appropriately
SELECT  t.PERSONFULLNAME,
        t.PERSONNUM,
        t.LABORLEVELNAME1,

A little update:

I see the delay is from the number of records scanned and returned.

Thanks for getting back.

Query completes in 54 seconds from Enterprise Manager, but report still fails with System.OutOfMemoryException.

I need all records to get correct result from the report, so might have to wait until server can be upgraded to 64 bit with extended memory...

Any other ideas are welcome!

Bjorn

hi

you can try removing the ORDER BY  to free memory on execution .

could you move some of the reporting services logic to a stored procedure, then feed a smaller set of results to reporting services?

Thanks for all tips. The query was more effcient after your input. Didn't make it all the way, but I got a few more months out of it.

Thanks,
