Fastest Data Types For Retrieval
Posted by: Steve Arrington

Is there somewhere I could find a list of data types in order of retrieval performance? My data is primarily static and I'm having slow SELECT statements on tables with records in the tens of millions. The tables are primarily VARCHAR and TINYINT. I'm looking to see if I can change data types for faster retrieval - possibly CHAR. I think CHAR is faster to retrieve than VARCHAR but slower than TINYINT. Any help would be appreciated.
