MySQL Join Optimisation - 2 hours, for what should take seconds!!

I have been trying to optimise a MySQL script, which for some reason is taking over 2 hours to run! I've been unable to figure out why the script takes so long to run, so any help and tips for identifying the cause of the problem would be appreciated.

The script is very simple, essentially:

SELECT x.*, y.field1, y.field2, y.field3

FROM table1 x

LEFT JOIN table2 y

on = and = and x.id2 = y.id2

Both tables are approximately 90k rows.

    Have you used an SQL transform to add indexes to your two tables on id, id2 and date fields?

    Alternatively have you used the new MagicETL as that will be much faster.
