Hello Experts,

I have the below SQL :

EXPLAIN PLAN FOR 
SELECT  QST_RESPONSE ,
  QST_RESPONSE_ATTACHMENT ,
  QST_RESPONSE_DATE ,
  QST_ALL_AREAS ,
  QST_APPLE_DEDICATED_AREAS ,
  QST_NON_PRODUCTION_UTILITIES ,
  QST_PRODUCTION_AREAS_DEDICATED ,
  QST_COMMON_PRODUCTION_USED
FROM MS_SRA_VISIT_QUESTIONS
WHERE QUESTION_ID                          = :B2
AND REGEXP_SUBSTR(VISIT_ID ,'[^-]+' ,1 ,2) = :B1
AND QST_TYPE                              <> '1'
AND DD_CREATED_ON                          =
  (SELECT /*+ index_ss(QS MS_SRA_VISIT_QUESTIONS_PK) */ MAX(qs.DD_CREATED_ON)
  FROM MS_SRA_VISIT_QUESTIONS QS
  WHERE QS.QUESTION_ID                          = :B2
  AND REGEXP_SUBSTR(QS.VISIT_ID ,'[^-]+' ,1 ,2) = :B1
  AND qs.QST_TYPE                              <> '1'
  ) ;

Want to change in such a way that the indexes should not be skiped and also the way IN condition are been used.

The index is not being skipped.  The index is still being used.  The index being used is a composite index (it has more than one column).  The first column in the index (VISIT_ID) cannot be used because of the REGEXPR_SUBSTR call on it.  However, QUESTION_ID (the second column in the index) can be used.  Oracle is smart enough now to be able to used that index to search for QUESTION_ID.

If you want an index range scan instead of an index skip scan, then create an index on QUESTION_ID.  If you do that, I would probably add DD_CREATED_ON as a second column in that index.  You may already have that indexed, but with the hint you have, you are forcing an index to be used.

You may also consider a function based index on the REGEXP_SUBSTR.  Not sure if you would get good cardinality there or not.

rather than querying the table twice, have you considered using an analytic?


SELECT qst_response,
       qst_response_attachment,
       qst_response_date,
       qst_all_areas,
       qst_apple_dedicated_areas,
       qst_non_production_utilities,
       qst_production_areas_dedicated,
       qst_common_production_used
  FROM (SELECT qst_response,
               qst_response_attachment,
               qst_response_date,
               qst_all_areas,
               qst_apple_dedicated_areas,
               qst_non_production_utilities,
               qst_production_areas_dedicated,
               qst_common_production_used,
               RANK() OVER (ORDER BY dd_created_on DESC) r
          FROM ms_sra_visit_questions
         WHERE question_id = :b2
           AND REGEXP_SUBSTR(
                   visit_id,
                   '[^-]+',
                   1,
                   2
               ) = :b1
           AND qst_type <> '1')
 WHERE r = 1;


if the dd_created_on will be unique then you could use row_number() instead of rank()
