SELECT x,y,z FROM table1 WHERE conditions on table1 columns LOOP... FETCH set HOST-VAR = table1.x SELECT a,b,c FROM table2 WHERE table2.a = HOST-VAR AND table2 conditions END LOOPChange the above to something like this:
SELECT x,y,z,a,b,c FROM table1, table2 WHERE x = a AND table1 conditions AND table2 conditionsThat will perform much better. If there are circumstances where there are no rows in table2 that will match table1, then you will need to change this join into an outer join.
