Function calling [message #282084] Tue, 20 November 2007 16:38 Go to next message

Can anybody help me taking a decision?
I have to write a job, which will run once a day. The job will insert the whole work done in last 24 hours into a History table. Then do some "Business calculations" on that History table. On an average the number of works per day is 50K - 60K. Now the problem is, wheather I will call a function to do the "business calc." for each of those 50000 works, or do an update to do the same task?? Confused My ONLY concern is the overhead or the performance. Though I will run it at a time when last users are connected, but still I want your help on this.....

Thanks in advance

Only YOU can really answer the question about which is better by benchmarking all alternatives & selecting the best one.
