Two TZQuery'ies connected via MasterSource

Hello Experts!

I have to TZQuery components.

They are providing data from two Master- Detail tables.

It looks like this:

1.

select * from table1 where index = 1;

2.

select * from table2;

These two TZQuery are connected together via MasterSource, MasterFields, LinkedFields and IndexFieldNames.

It works fine but slowly.

I wonder if I could make it work faster...?

Maybe I should avoid queries like:

select * from table2?

What is the best practice to realize this master- detail connection?

Thank you

to provide tuning solution, you'll need to indicate what database you are using
in general:
minimize your column list (only select columns you really want)
minimize your rows returned (do you actually read more than 25 lines ?)

for master-detail you can usually combine in 1 query

select
  m.column1 master_col1,
  m.column2 master_col2,
  m.column3 master_col3,
  d.column1 detail_col1,
  d.column2 detail_col2
from table1 m
  left join table2 d on m.mastercolumn = d.mastercolumn
where m.index = 1;

displaying the data in the detail view can be done by applying a filter on the data in memory

when tuning a problem the basics should be checked too:
network > amount of data to copy
local pc > cpu load, memory,
database type > local, server, load
query > optimal execution path ?

"minimize your rows returned (do you actually read more than 25 lines ?)"

how do you make your query return only lets say maximum 25 lines?

Thank you

mysql
select columns from table LIMIT 1, 25

oracle
select columns from table where rownum <= 25
> doesn't have a offset

in the properties of some query components you can find this:
FethAll: boolean; (default false)
FetchCount: 25; (default)

some grids like devexpress know this and can call FetchNext to get all data
