Hi all

I have a table that looks like this:

TicketID              SetStatus                                      SetDate                                       Count
100601BG15      Acknowledged                      2010-06-01 14:02:45.330                   1
100601BG15      Waiting on Business      2010-06-01 14:07:28.820                   0
100601BG15      Pending                              2010-06-01 14:07:40.597                   1
100601BG15      Pending                              2010-06-01 14:34:43.737                   1
100601BG15      Pending                           2010-06-03 18:29:47.120                   1      
100601BG15      Post Dated                      2010-06-04 09:00:52.587                   0
100601BG15      Post Dated                      2010-06-07 12:42:37.960                   0
100601BG15      Fulfilled                              2010-06-07 14:38:29.677                   1


I also have a function  CalcMinutesSLA(Date1,Date2) that will calculate the difference between two dates excluding weekends and holidays.

Basically what i need is to calculate the difference in minutes between each date and the one before it and only the ones that have count set to 1.

So from the example above i would need the difference between Fulfilled and Post Date then from Post Dated to Pending and so on.

Please see the attached script with your sample data and final query

Raj
create table #table

(

	TicketID              varchar(20),

	SetStatus             varchar(20), 

	SetDate               datetime,                        

	Count				int

)



insert into #table

select '100601BG15',      'Acknowledged',                      '2010-06-01 14:02:45.330',                   1

union all

select '100601BG15',      'Waiting on Business',      '2010-06-01 14:07:28.820',                   0 

union all

select '100601BG15',      'Pending',                              '2010-06-01 14:07:40.597',                   1

union all

select '100601BG15',      'Pending',                              '2010-06-01 14:34:43.737',                   1

union all

select '100601BG15',      'Post Dated',                      '2010-06-04 09:00:52.587',                   0

with cte as

(

	select *, row_number() over (order by SetDate) row_no 

	from #table

) 

select *, datediff(mi, a.SetDate, b.SetDate) as DiffMinute from cte a

	inner join cte b

		on a.row_no = b.row_no - 1

Oh! In my query, give the alias 'a'. Here is the modified query.

Raj

	select *, row_number() over (order by SetDate) row_no

) 

select a.*, datediff(mi, a.SetDate, b.SetDate) as DiffMinute from cte a

	inner join cte b

The "count" condition is not accounted for, and it is far from being clear what you mean. In the above CTE, would the added condition be
   a.count = 1 and b.count = 0 or a.count = 0 and b.count = 1
or
  a.count = 1 or b.count = 1
?

The count condition only there to say whether the status assosiated to the row should be counted since when the ticket is set to 'Waiting on business' for example it should not count the time towards the SLA value.

Check this new query. I verified and seems to be fine.

Raj
select b.*, datediff(mi, PreviousDate, Setdate) as DiffInMinutes

from

(

	select a.*, (Select max(SetDate) from #table where SetDate < a.SetDate and count = 1) as PreviousDate

	from #table a

) b
