SELECT X.* FROM ( SELECT CON_SHIPPER_CONTENT_ID ,CON_SA_CREATE_DATETIME ,CON_PK_JOB_ID ,CON_PK_DATABASE_CONTAINER_ID ,CON_MAILCLASS ,CON_PROCESSINGCATEGORY ,CON_ENTRY_POINT_PHYSICAL ,VerificationLocation ,CON_ZONE_SKIPPING_INDICATOR ,PriorityMailIndicator ,CON_NEWS_INDICATOR ,CON_DESTINATION_DISCOUNT_INDICATOR ,CON_RATETYPE ,CON_SCHEDULED_INDUCTION_DATE ,CON_INHOME_START_DATETIME FROM MDB_CONTENT_INFO WHERE ((CON_CONSIGNEE_ID IS NULL) OR (CON_CONSIGNEE_ID = 'N/A')) AND ((CON_FAST_CONTENT_ID IS NULL) OR (CON_FAST_CONTENT_ID = 'N/A')) AND (SAC_IsLinked is null or SAC_IsLinked = 'False' ) AND (SAC_SchedulerContentID is null) AND ShipperApptRequestID is null AND (CON_SHIPPER_CONTENT_ID not in (SELECT items FROM dbo.GetCommaSplitValue(@InputVariable,','))) AND (@MailClass = '-1-' OR CON_MailClass = @MailClass) And (@MailShape = '-1-' OR CON_ProcessingCategory = @MailShape) And (@InductionDate = '-1-' OR CON_SCHEDULED_INDUCTION_DATE = @InductionDate) And (@VerificationLocation = '-1-' OR VerificationLocation like '%' + @VerificationLocation+ '%') And (@LocaleKey = '-1-&#

optimizing a query / a table


i have a table T with (simplified)schema: 
T(Type, Interval, a, b, c, d). all the fields have int type. there is no primary key and no index set on the table and it has about 13 million records (the actual table contains 9 more int fields).

i wrote a query that counts how many distinct d values appear for each triple (a,b,c), with Type = typeValue and Interval between I1 and I2 like this:

SELECT a,b,c, COUNT(d) AS NoOfDValues
SELECT a, b, c, d FROM T
WHERE Interval BETWEEN I1 AND I2 AND Type = typeValue
GROUP BY a,b,c,d
) AS Q1
GROUP BY Q1.a, Q1.b, Q1.c

for the data in my table, this query is executed in about 35 seconds. and i need to run it thousands of time from my app.

how can i optimize both my table (only with indexes) and my query? 

thank you


update. i tried some indexes as suggested here, but the best execution time i get for the worst case scenario is 15 seconds. is there a way to make this query run in at most 2 or 3 seconds?

How to send an email with information in query string


First I will say I googled (Binged to make Bill happy) for this but could not find anything, perhaps I am not stating what I need correctly;

I have a website that a customer creates orders (for a printing company) and after the order, I would like to email the customer a link to view the status of their order;

I need to send the CustomerID in the link so on the returning page if a CustomerID is detected in the querystring, I "auto login" the client and open the "Dashboard" for the order page for that customer.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how to send the link and how to parse the querystring to get the values from the link;

Thank you if you can point me in the right direction.
