Hi

I have this monsterous "report-to" query that necessitates the use of the following

Select columns from tables where reports_to > '    '
Union
Select columns from tables  where reports_to ='    '.

I had to do this because  the records with the blank values  would be repeated a zillion times.

Do you see how this query could be designed differently.  I have not used any of the optimizing tools in sql query Analyzer to see it the query is effecient yet.  But I will do this as soon as I get the DBA to give me permission to these tools.

Thank you,
Nigluc
