Hints not used by optimizer .

If the SQL query involves several tables and join conditions and if it is required to force the index access/full table access or whatever, hints could be used to accomplish the task.

If the query involves aliases for the tables and the if hints are mentioned with the table name and not with the alias name, then the optimizer wont use the hints.
