This question already has an answer here:
I've a query with multiple joins which takes long time to return data for one date. I've created an indexed view on the same. I set all the required options appropriately, while creating view and index.
I want to leverage on the advantage of indexed view, wherein if I've a similar query or the exact same query somewhere else, the query optimizer chooses the indexed view so that performance is improved. I tried using the exact same query that was used to create index (with an additional date filter) but query plan doesn't seem to change. Index on the view is still not used even if I explicitly use the view in the query. I could only get the query optimizer to use the index with noexpand hint. Note that I'm using SQL Server enterprise edition.
