4) INDEXESI can certainly add an index but given the table sizes I am not sure if that is a factor. This by no means is a large dataset less than 350,000 rows in total and 3 columns. Also this was just a quick dump of data for comparison purpose. When I saw the poor performance on the COALESCE, I pointed the data load to SQL Server and ran the same query except with the TSQL specific ISNULL function.
