Probably because the default for interactive SQL is OPTIMIZE(*FIRSTIO) so as soon as it has fetched enough records to fill a screen you see the result. Batch is usually OPTIMIZE(*ALLIO) so the entire query has to finish before you see the results. Try paging down in interactive SQL and see if the Query running message appears each time. If so then the query is being completed as you request additional pages of data.

- but running it from the
web we needed to have it ordered so that the criteria in the where
clause were progressively LESS unique.  Does that make sense?

Of course. You are filtering on the most unique data first which is bound to improve things. SQL can often reorder the selection criteria to minimise effort but you know more about your data than SQL does.
