Re: Which query is best?

Rajaram,

Thanks for your suggestions and link. However, we can't implement SKIP
LOCKED option because of the below reason given in the link which you
provided:

  >>This feature is useful if the goal of the query is to obtain numbers of
units, rather than the actual content of the rows.

As we are selecting the actual content of the rows rather than obtaining
number of units.
