Slow query due to variable

Hello everyone,

this query is driving me crazy The problem is that when I'm in a server and execute a query against another server, it works well when I use hardcoded values but turns terrible slow when I use a variable. I've looked everywhere but haven't got the right answer. This problem exist in queries and Stored Procedures. I've tried this with parameters instead of variables and the problem persists.

The weird thing is that two days ago I was able to execute the query qith the variable without problems.

Any insight will be welcome

Thanks

USE DataBaseInServerA

Declare @date smalldatetime Set @date = ‘1987-03-15’ Select * from ServerB.asd.dbo.person Where birthday = '1987-03-15' --- < This works perfectly

Select * from ServerB.asd.dbo.person Where birthday = @date --- < This takes toooo long

Now it works fine. The problem was an option in the server.

Under this path:

Server Objects - Providers - SQLOLEDB

I activated the 'Dynamic parameters' option and that was it! silly, uh?

The problem was that the ServerB was sending the whole table and ServerA was applying the filter instead of pasing the parameter value so the ServerB could apply the filter

Yup, that'd do it. Good that you asked (and answered), because it will hopefully help someone else who has the same problem with their linked servers. Make sure you mark it as the accepted answer.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
