Happy Monday and happy August! I've said it before, but I'll say it again - time seems to be flying by! It can be hard keeping up when things are moving so fast, so here's a look into what's been going on around the community:

Most Talked About Thread

**This is determined by the number of responses to a thread

Morgan DUARTE asked a question to find the Delta Price calculation between sale prices for two given years. Ashish Chaudhari and Mahfooj Khan provided a couple of calculations that got close, but didn't quite solve the problem. Mark Fraser then came in with some insight about there being multiple records for each data. This helped move the ball a little closer to the finish line, and helped Morgan on his way.

 

Most Viewed Thread

himhim chan asked how to Calculate time difference with certain time range. Himhim received a series of possible solutions, with multiple calculations that broke it down into multiple segments. Ultimately, it was Ɓukasz Majewski who had the correct answer which solved Himhim's problem.
