Getting Data In

DB Connect - Query timed out Issue


Im setting up a new DB connect. While creating inputs i could execute the SQL query and get results in Batch Mode. Where as when i execute the same query in Rising Column mode (which adds Order by clause to the query) takes more time and i get query time out message.

I suspect this is because  the initial query pulls entire records which is around 13 Million records

Please suggest if there is any alternate method?

Query im using :

Select * from table_name where column_name1  LIKE %abc% AND column_name2 > ? ORDER BY column_name2 ASC

have the column_name2 index in dB? If not then I propose that it will be added. Otherwise the only option is increase timeout parameter for this input query.
