Hi

I have a mysql database with a list of customers and a time stamp to show when they registered. I would like to produce a report that shows.

Week  |  Date Starting    |  Registrations

1         |  1/April/2008     |     20
2         |  8/April/2008     |     15
3         | 15/April/2008    |     6

The field is called "tStamp".  Could somebody show me how to write the query?

Kind Regards,

Adrian Smith

Something like this perhaps?
SELECT      WEEK(`tStamp`) AS `Week`,
            DATE_ADD(`tStamp`, INTERVAL(1-DAYOFWEEK(`tStamp`)) DAY) AS `Date Starting`,
            COUNT(*) AS `Registrations`
FROM        **TABLENAME**
GROUP BY    WEEK(`tStamp`);

Hi Cyberstalker

Your a genius!

Would you know how to remove the time section and just show the date?

Kind Regards,

Adrian

Sample Output.

PS Cyberstalker

Could you also show me how to make the data:

ORDER BY: Date Starting, Assending

At the moment the dates and weeks are not ordered. For example Week 8 is in 2008 and week 1 is in 2009.

Kind Regards,

Of course. You can use DATE_FORMAT to format the way you see the date. Ordering can be done easily with order by on the tStamp field.
SELECT      WEEK(`tStamp`) AS `Week`,
            DATE_FORMAT(DATE_ADD(`tStamp`, INTERVAL(1-DAYOFWEEK(`tStamp`)) DAY), '%Y-%m-%d') AS `Date Starting`,
            COUNT(*) AS `Registrations`
FROM        **TABLENAME**
GROUP BY    WEEK(`tStamp`)
ORDER BY    `tStamp`;

For anybody finding this post, I did a small tweek.

The query above is fine if your data is less than 1 year.

If it's more than 1 year all of the data from the individual weeks are added together. For example all of the registrations from week 1 of 2007, 2008 and 2009 are added together.

This is corrected by grouping by the date starting field.



 
SELECT 	WEEK( `tStamp` ) AS `Week` , 
		COUNT( * ) AS `Registrations` , 
		DATE_FORMAT( DATE_ADD( `tStamp` , INTERVAL( 1 - DAYOFWEEK( `tStamp` ) )DAY ) , '%d-%m-%Y' ) AS `Date Starting`
FROM 	home_front_contacts
GROUP 	BY `Date Starting`
ORDER 	BY `tStamp`
LIMIT 	1 , 100
