I have my query set that displays the columns/data that i want from multiple tables

two of the columns that are displayed are

"test_time"  and "test_time2"

those time columns are in UNIX time

now i would like to compare those two columns... test_time is always going to be older in time than test_time2.

two requests:

have a column added to the query that displays the time difference.

Then i would like to display or get a row count of how many of those comparisons are with in 24 hour difference.

for an added extra bonus.. how can i display a percentage of those are within 24 hours.

Any help would be awesome!! i love EE!!

The number of seconds in 24 hours is 86400.  You can check to see if the difference is less than that and/or you can keep a count of the total and a count of the ones that are less than 86400.  Then divide the 'less' total by the overall total and multiply by 100 to get the percentage.
