  4. WDI Client Document Store query performance may be slow, or a time-out may occur when using "Date Added to Store Between" as Selection Criteria.
    The WDI client for Windows allows transactions in the Document Store to be selected by "Date Added to Store" (column TRANDATE). However, there is no index for TRANDATE on Document Store table EDIENU33.EDITSTH, hence the query does a full table scan to identify these transactions.
