  I seem to remember someone having an efficient method for combining a Date column and a Time column into a Timestamp column; one that didn't involve Casting to Char and use of '||'.  


     cast(datecol as TimeStamp(2))
        + ((timecol - time '00:00:00') hour to second)
     ;

This uses about 5 times less CPU than

     sel
        cast(cast(datecol as char(10)) || ' ' ||
             cast(timecol as char(..)) as TimeStamp(2))
