                WHERE        (a.ParentName            = @AName    OR ISNULL(@AName, '') = '')
                        AND    (a.ParentsChildName        = @BName    OR ISNULL(@BName, '') = '')
                        AND (a.ChildsChildName        = @CName    OR ISNULL(@CName, '') = '')

    I've this above query where I need to fetch all the records from the three tables.
    First table [sch].[Parent] has a field referenced as Foreign Key in second table [sch].[ParentsChild]. There are records which are in both the tables with their FK.
    Now, there is a third table [sch].[ChildsChild] which is also referenced by FK of second table [sch].[ParentsChild] table, but there are records missing for the entries in second table.
    So now I need to fetch all the records from three tables including JOINS for all three tables and for those also whose records are missing from third table i.e. [sch].[ChildsChild] table.
    I've the query, but need to know if there is any other COST effective query than the below one.
