SQL Query

I have a SQL Query that takes some time to return answer.  Is there a way to speed up the response?
The table has about 5,000,000 rows of data.

SELECT vol FROM tblVolDelta13_18 WHERE [deltaId] = '50' and [loadTime] = '25200' and [expiryId] = '2' and [loadDate] = '40623'

Generally, the idea is to retreive the vol data for the latest date.  Running this query does take about 30 seconds to retreive the answer.

Thanks,

It may just be a case of indexes

Are all the fields in your where clause indexed

Hi,
You're doing checking for a string, why is that?
I think that those columns which you're filtering by are integers, aren't they?

I think the code should look like this:
SELECT vol FROM tblVolDelta13_18 WHERE [deltaId] = 50 and [loadTime] = 25200 and [expiryId] = 2 and [loadDate] = 40623

Open in new window


Plus try adding indexes where possible.

Check the database columns data type, probably you are using varchar instead of int, you should also update the query and remove the quotations to query about integers.

Or you can use paging for this scenario.
