Since the query plan is done at prepare time, queries like this can cause a problem:
select * from foo where bar = ? and baz like ?
If there are two indexes, one on bar, and one on baz, which should be used? If baz is '%' (nothing but a wildcard), then it would be the wrong index to use, but if it's 'some long prefix%' then it's probably a good index to use, but there's no way to tell at prepare time. Trick: if you know baz is always the wrong index in this case but the database picks that index anyway (and your database does not support hints), you can fool it into not using the index (and hopefully using the correct one) by doing something like this (example also includes how to not use an index on a numeric column):
select * from foo where bar = ? and baz || '' like ? and some_number + 0 = ?

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
