RE: SQL created table slows reporting tool



fixed

I hear you Paul. I have a tough time explaining to the OVER 40 crowd why
their updates take so long.
They read this huge input file. Instead of summarizing it by the
subtotals and only writing at subtotal time they do a
read
if no record found,
write
else
update
endif
Thus having over a million extra I/O's.
It's like they've never heard of control breaks, total time, etc.
