execution plan as below :slight_smile:
execution plan
statment that make issue

 select a.RecomendationId,cast(STRING_AGG(cast(f1.FeatureValue as varchar(300)) ,'|')  WITHIN GROUP(ORDER BY f1.FeatureId ASC)as varchar(300))  AS DiffFeatures into ExtractReports.dbo.TechnologyOriginalFeaturesEqual from extractreports.dbo.partsrecomendationActive a with(nolock)
 inner join ExtractReports.dbo.TechnologyPlPartsFeaturValuesOrg f1 with(nolock) on f1.partid=a.OrignalPartId
 inner join [Technology].Receipe Ft WITH(NOLOCK) on ft.featureid=f1.featureid and ft.operatorid=1
 group by a.RecomendationId

statment that make issue

statment execution take too much time to execute
ddl with indexes

You have no WHERE clause - so all rows are being returned, and that appears to be more than 65,000,000 rows. The end result is more than 13,000,000 rows inserted with STRING_AGG used to create a column with a list of features for each recommendation.

The sort isn't the real issue here - the issue is why are you creating a pipe-delimited column of features that are sorted in any particular order and then inserting that into another table?

The outer CAST isn't needed - and the inner cast may not be needed depending on the actual data type for the column FeatureId.

I strongly suspect that it also contains a couple of "accidental Cross Joins". I gave the OP a pair of queries to run on another site where he posted this identical problem.

thanks much for support
can you show me how to do that by cross join
