I have two sql queries. It is a join on two tables.

Query 1>

Does not use index on one table. The consistent get count in autotrace is around 15.

Query 2>

Uses index on both the tables. The consistent get count in autotrace is 360.

The rest of the parameters in autotrace output is the same. Can anyone help me out in choosing the right one??

Thanks much
Raajesh

Choose the one that gets the right answer?

Choose the one that runs the fastest?
