Tom,

Here is the row data for comparison with the selectivity estimates:

select count(*) from dim0 d0 where d0.d0f1 between '1999-11-01' and
'1999-12-01'               31 rows
select count(*) from fact1 where d0key  =
<value>
3000 rows
total number of joined rows before group
by
9000 rows
( i.e : there are only 3 distinct d0key values in fact1 for the "month" ,
and each one has 3000 rows )

It looks like the estimate on the big table ( fact1 ) are right order of
magnitude, but the small table ( dim0 ) ones are too high (and presumably )
throwing the rest off

I did a vacuum analyze of these tables again, just in case....( no change
to the plans)

Cheers

Mark
