I have a MySql database. I would like to write a stored procedure to do the following:
From a tableX with the following columns:
period (datetime fromat) price (decimal format) result (decimal format)
2008-01-20 09:25:00 1 NULL
2008-01-20 09:26:00 3 NULL
2008-01-20 09:27:00 5 NULL
2008-01-20 09:28:00 7 NULL
2008-01-20 09:29:00 1 NULL
2008-01-20 09:30:00 6 NULL
For every row, I would like to sum up the last 1000 prices and subtract from them the sum of the 1000 prices before them and put that difference in the column 'result'. For the purposes of an example, lets assume that instead of looking at the last 1000 prices I am looking at the last two. So in this case the last row would have (6+1)-(7+5) or -5, the second to last row would have (1+7)-(5+3) or 0...etc. The 1st three rows which dont have enough data to make the calculation should be left as NULLs.
In advance, thanks a lot.
