Query runs out of memory

Query runs out of memory

Query runs out of memory

(OP)
Hi, I'm working with some VERY large databases and running a join. After a while, I get an out of Memory error because the results in memory grow too big. What are some work arounds? I'm using PostgreSQL.
I've heard of a method that uses fetch and limit, but I can't use an external program to detect when 0 lines are turned.

Many thanks.

RE: Query runs out of memory

Also, it is almost impossible to determine the casue of an issue like this without a look at the code that is running. So please post the code when you go to the forum you need.
