I have a very simple query to select all columns from a table if a particular column does not a character...but its cpu time is very high



total_cpu_time: 2953125
total_execution_count: 7
number_of_statements:1



what could be the probable reason for this ...

No idea. Not enough information.

Please post query, table definition and index definitions,

Can you share the table definition, query, and number of unfiltered rows in the table?

well in general, "particular column does not a character" would mean a NOT LIKE '%X%' pr PATINDEX =0, right?, so that would requre a table scan of all rows, so i'm no suprised it has a big impact; every value has to be evaluated.
that would not be Sargable, so it cannot use an index.

And furthermore, it requires a full scan of every column value, which is very expensive if the full rules of Unicode must be applied. Which they must, unless any of the below are true:
1) You have a binary collation.
2) The column is varchar and you have an SQL collation.
