Hello,

I have the following view that's taking 40 seconds to execute.  I've been trying to speed it up and am having no lock.  I am using MS SQL server 2005

SELECT p1.USI,
      MAX([Review1]) AS [Review1],    
      MAX([Review2]) AS [Review2],  
      MAX([Review3]) AS [Review3],  
      MAX([Review4]) AS [Review4],
      MAX([Review5]) AS [Review5],    
      MAX([Review6]) AS [Review6],  
      MAX([Review7]) AS [Review7],  
      MAX([Review8]) AS [Review8]
FROM (
SELECT      USI, Review, 'Review'+CONVERT(VARCHAR(2),rn) ReviewPvtCol            
FROM      (SELECT USI, Review,             
                  ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY USI ORDER BY Review) rn
             FROM  dbo.vwViewAllForPivot) AS SourceTable
) p
PIVOT
(
max(Review)
FOR ReviewPvtCol IN ([Review1], [Review2], [Review3], [Review4], [Review5], [Review6], [Review7], [Review8])
) AS P1

GROUP BY P1.USI
GO

*Again*, this may just be "What it is"...

This is basically the same Q as this one:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS-SQL-Server/Q_27661444.html
If not, then please explain the difference...?
...otherwise this issue need to be addressed in the original question...

Make sense?
