Query Taking long time

Posted on 2013-11-04
Last Modified: 2013-11-06
If I run the query , the data comes back fast but removing the comment, it takes forever
 takes forever when the commented lines dealing with TxOrganStatus are included?
Can anyone let me know how to optimize this?

from (    select distinct patientid
              from trntb_LabResult
             where LabResultId between 43699849
                                            and 43781505    
       ) pl
join trntb_TxEvent txe
on txe.PatientId  = pl.patientid  
join trntb_RecipientTxEntity rent
  on rent.TxEventId = txe.TxEventId
--join trntb_TxOrganStatus os
--  on os.TxeventId = txe.TxEventId  
--  and os.TxEntityTypeCode = rent.TxEntityTypeCode
where rent.TxDate is not null
   and rent.TxEntityTypeCode = 5
--   and os.OrganStatus = 19071 -- Active

Trntb_TxOrganStatus has the following Index:
    ON dbo.trntb_TxOrganStatus(TxEventId,TxEntityTypeCode)

If I run  on os.TxeventId = rent.TxEventId , then the query runs faster.

Any reason why?

Run the query with the "Include Actual Execution Plan" option.  Do you have any table scans or key lookups?  Is there a suggested index change?

You'll probably need this index:

TxOrganStatus ( TxeventId, TxEntityTypeCode ) INCLUDE ( OrganStatus )

Likely there's an index that includes that column but one or both of the other columns referenced in the query.  When you use a column that's not in the index, SQL must then go back to the main table, either via a full table scan or from an index lookup.

Change the existing index, if there is one, to include the other two columns.

CORRECTION, I left out "NOT", which makes it much more clear:
