The ORDER BY is a CPU hog and eliminating it should improve the run time. Ken

I am querying a table with 5 millions records and 5 fields using the following SQL code: proc sql; create table test as select,l.sample_dt from temp.lab l where =lab_id in ('8888-8','9999-1') order by id, sample_dt; quit;

It takes very long time to run (6 minutes). Is a way to make it run faster? Thanks in advance.
