Hello,

I have checked execution plan.
How can I optimize this query :
SELECT 
[SplitId],[PKey],[affId],[SalesKey]  ,[Trader]   ,[NetBro] ,[Ccy] ,[NetBroFuncCcy] ,[FuncCcy] ,[Side] ,[NetBroNoDiscount]
FROM   [dbo].[FI_Splits]
WHERE affDate<CAST(ROUND(CAST(getdate() AS float)-0.25,0)AS Datetime)
   and affDate > cast(   year(current_timestamp)-2 as char(4)) +'0101' 

Open in new window


Thanks

do you have an index on affDate?

have you tried casting the AND clause as a date?
CAST( cast(   year(current_timestamp)-2 as char(4)) +'0101' AS DATETIME)

For starters, the WHERE clause is doing a comparison with both a datetime and a character values?  That would mean implicit conversion, possibly for every row.

Better to do your formulas in scalar variables of the same data type, then refer to those variables in your WHERE clause.

Cluster dbo.FI_Splits by affDate if that is how you typically query that table (instead of the existing cluster on the id/identity column).  Add a nonclustered index on the id/identity column if you actually use it to do lookups w/o specifying a small affDate range.

To avoid unwanted column conversions, use varchar values for both affDate comparison values:

...same as before...
WHERE affDate < CONVERT(char(8), CAST(ROUND(CAST(getdate() AS float)-0.25,0) AS Datetime), 112)...same as before...
