p1.schm_cd ='abc'

left outer join 
d1.val_table t2
t1.val_cd = a.some_other_ind
and t1.schm_Cd ='pqr'
d1.schm_tab p2
p1.schm_cd ='pqr'
left outer join 
d1.val_table t25
t1.val_cd = a.some_other_other_ind
and t1.schm_Cd ='xyz'
d1.schm_tab p25

Hi All,
I have a view running for a very long time. Can anybody suggest me alternative for left outer joins to val table and the schm_tab. Thanks in advance.

In one line, there is no alternative to LEFT OUTER JOIN.
Regarding fixing performance .... How are the tables designed? What the joining columns? What is the PI? .... search forum and you will get many scenarios of performance issues.
There is no magic to performant queries. :)
