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

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.

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
