Turning off merg joins seems to of done it but what do I need to do so I am
not telling the system explicitly not to use them, I must be missing some
setting?

On linux box.

explain analyze select * from viwassoclist where clientnum ='SAKS'

"Hash Join  (cost=988.25..292835.36 rows=15773 width=113) (actual
time=23.514..3024.064 rows=160593 loops=1)"
"  Hash Cond: ("outer".locationid = "inner".locationid)"
"  ->  Hash Left Join  (cost=185.57..226218.77 rows=177236 width=75) (actual

"        Hash Cond: (("outer".jobtitleid = "inner".id) AND

"                    Filter: (1 = presentationid)"
"  ->  Hash  (cost=801.54..801.54 rows=454 width=49) (actual

"        ->  Index Scan using ix_location on tbllocation l

here are the table defs and view if that helps. I posted the config a while
back, but can do it again if you need to see it.

CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW viwassoclist AS 
 SELECT a.clientnum, a.associateid, a.associatenum, a.lastname, a.firstname,
jt.value AS jobtitle, l.name AS "location", l.locationid AS mainlocationid,
l.divisionid, l.regionid, l.districtid, (a.lastname::text || ', '::text) ||
a.firstname::text AS assocname, a.isactive, a.isdeleted
   FROM tblassociate a
   LEFT JOIN tbljobtitle jt ON a.jobtitleid = jt.id AND jt.clientnum::text =
a.clientnum::text AND 1 = jt.presentationid
   JOIN tbllocation l ON a.locationid = l.locationid AND l.clientnum::text =
a.clientnum::text;

It strikes me as odd that the thing isn't considering hash joins for
at least some of these steps.  Can you force it to (by setting
enable_mergejoin off)?  If not, what are the datatypes of the join
columns exactly?
