Well done, Gail!
I think this is going to be part of many people's signature like Jeff's article on posting best practices.

Thanks Gila, nice article! Looks like it will be a great help to the n00bs. I didn't think of attaching a query plan to my questions, but I'll do so in future where relevant.

Well done. Very nicely laid out and explained.

Read it is a possibility. Expecting everyone to follow the advice might be a little too much to ask for though.

Fully agree with the post and recommendation from Gail.

A general comment to posts where somebody is asking for help: It would also be nice if the solution to the problem is posted as well even the person itself finds the solution.

Often I come across threats in forums where at the end and after several pages of replies from others the originator writes: If could fix it myself. No further explanation what he did and why it worked again. Crying

Have a nice weekend all together.
