Hello,
I'm using a query for years but this time it makes me getting creasy ...

UPDATE TABLE_1 set TABLE_1.CHANGEMENT = 1 ,
    TABLE_1.VALEUR_POINTS = TABLE_2.VALEUR_POINTS,
    TABLE_1.DESIGNATION_PRODUIT = TABLE_2.DESIGNATION_PRODUIT
     FROM TABLE_2 JOIN TABLE_1 ON TABLE_1.REF_EDITEUR = TABLE_2.REF_EDITEUR  AND  TABLE_1.REF_PRODUIT = TABLE_2.REF_PRODUIT  AND ACTUEL = 1
     WHERE
     TABLE_2.REF_EDITEUR = 'ZIM'
     AND TABLE_1.GAMME = TABLE_2.GAMME
     AND TABLE_1.PROGRAM_TYPE = TABLE_2.PROGRAM_TYPE
     AND( TABLE_1.VALEUR_POINTS <> TABLE_2.VALEUR_POINTS
     OR TABLE_1.DESIGNATION_PRODUIT <> TABLE_2.DESIGNATION_PRODUIT )

this query should returned 0 because there is no entry to join.
TABLE_2 is a very little table (less than 300 entries)

if I run the query like this, it is running for a long, long , long time and have to stop it.
if I remove this line :  AND TABLE_1.PROGRAM_TYPE = TABLE_2.PROGRAM_TYPE
it is running in 0 secs.

attached the estimated plan.

I added the option FORCE ORDER but it didn't help....

thanks to help me, very urgent and important ....

Would like to see full table and index definitions.

But, based on the query plan, the Produits PROGRAM_TYPE is having to go thru an implicit conversion to be compared to ~tmp_Produits.  Implicit conversions can have a very bad effect on performance (likely tmp_ is nvarchar, nontmp is varchar).  If you're going to join on a column, it's best to make sure they have exactly the same data types.

unbelieveable ....

IN TABLE_2 it was nvarchar(50) , in TABLE_1 it was varchar(50)

I changed table_2 to the same and it is working in 17ms ....
