I am using VB.net SQL Client to pull data on my local connection from a view that has 6 million records.
In the process I count the number of items in for instance a column called "Plant" that can contain only one of two
values "P01" and "P02". If I count the number of records that contain "P02" it times out. I tested it in SQL Server Management Studio and it took three minutes.
Is the technology the problem or is this something that might be caused by the speed at which my computer is running?
