Re: using alias in where clause

You should probably turn this into a UNION and put an index on each column:

SELECT f_tag_ch_y_bottom AS ftag FROM data_cst WHERE f_tag_ch_y_bottom =
SELECT f_tag_ch_x_bottom AS ftag FROM data_cst WHERE f_tag_ch_x_bottom =
SELECT f_tag_bottom_minor_axis AS ftag FROM data_cst WHERE
f_tag_bottom_minor_axis = 'E-CD7'
SELECT f_tag_bottom_major_axis AS ftag FROM data_cst WHERE
f_tag_bottom_major_axis = 'E-CD7'
SELECT f_tag_bottom FROM data_cst AS ftag WHERE f_tag_bottom = 'E-CD7'

Doing this any other way will prevent index usage and a full table scan
will be required.

Is there a possibility of more than one column matching? How would you
handle that?
