why am i getting a hash match join?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I am joining two large tables, 100+million rows each. They each have a clustered index  on 1 column and I am joining those 2 columns together. I was thinking this join should be instant, but its taking longer than I expected. The query looks like this: SELECT a.Journal_ID FROM Fact.TableName a  INNER JOIN Journal.TableName j ON j.ID = a.Journal_ID   The execution plan is doing a index scan on each table (not on the clustered index) and then doing a hash match on the results.   In reality I want a bunch of columns back from "a" and a handful from "b". What would be the ideal index design in this example?Craig

Merge Join: Full Outer Join - keep key values in case of no-match

I'm using the Merge Join to join several different incoming flows into one flow.  I've configured the joins to use a Full Outer Join because I need all records from all sources. In the case of a no-match, I want the component to keep the values of join key fields instead of setting them to NULL.  How can I achieve that?  (Activating the checkbox doesn't help, because that adds a new field to the output instead of re-using the existing one.)

Does SQL Server has the similar function just like Trace Event 10104 for hash join in Oracle?


My question is  how can SQL server display the  information about the buckets when doing the hash join just like the function of Trace Event 10104 in Oracle.By the way ,In Oracle ,the Event 10104 event dumps hash join statistics .
The buckets message what i needed is similar as the following,that is to say ,it must contains the information about buckets .
01 ### Hash table ### 
02 # NOTE: The calculated number of rows in non-empty buckets may be smaller 
03 # than the true number. 
04 Number of buckets with 0 rows: 16373 
05 Number of buckets with 1 rows: 0 
06 Number of buckets with 2 rows: 0 
07 Number of buckets with 3 rows: 1

Need help with mis-match full outer join


Hi, I'm sql 2005.  I have a sp that has 3 parts.  1st part selects from database A into a #tempA, 2nd part selects into a #tempB.  These 2 tables have the 6 common fields and only one field that is different so each table has 7 columns.
Part 3 of this sp full out join these 2 temp tables on the first 4 common fields and only include row if either  col5 and col6 subtraction difference is not equal to 0(meaning they should have the same value for both table of col5 and col6).  Select these rows into a 3rd temp table. then return the results of it.
The problem I have now is my 3rd table would record rows that should be a match but because of select order from each table ends uip with mis-matched the rows.
OR (A.COL6-B.COL6)<> 0


  col1        col2        col3        col4        col5        col6

The number of members in the conceptual type ... does not match with the number of members on the ob



I've added a scalar property to an entity and now ASP.NET Dynamic Data scaffolding throws this error:

The number of members in the conceptual type 'TrainingModel.Users' does not match with the number of members on the object side type 'TrainingModel.Users'. Make sure the number of members are the same.

This happens at the following line in global.asax:
model.RegisterContext(typeof(TrainingModel.TrainingEntities), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true });

Please help!
