Something More

Make sure, the Query you are entering is, as simple, as possible. Do not use heavy commands like ORDER BY, DISTINCT or something similar.

Instead, build a View, where all your Information is ready, and only use simple Select in our Portal

Reason: Heavy Queries can also slow down our Portal, and that is something, no one wants.
