The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Is the Plan() function returning the result based on Optimizer estimates only? Is Plan() already executing the statement to gather the statistics?

Yes, Martin - if you use the PLAN() or EXPLANATION() functions, only optimizer estimates are included in the details for any specific plan operator.
