    Time Calculations

    Sajid R

      I have data in following format    


      12START11/2/2015 11:14:00 PM
      12ACTIVE11/2/2015 11:14:03 PM
      12NOT ACTIVE11/2/2015 11:14:45 PM
      12ACTIVE11/2/2015 11:14:48 PM
      12END11/2/2015 11:14:50 PM


      i have many IDs with the states and I need to create a PIE chart that shows distribution of total seconds all the IDs were active and total seconds all were not active.

      How can I achieve this ?

          Quite difficult to define the logic with given information.

          How many "Active" and "Not Active" are expected between Start and End?

          If those are only one "Not active" and "two Active", the logic si relatively easy, but if those are really depends up to ie) 5 or so, we need have other "State"  definition,

          such as Active 1 & Not Active 1 etc,

            Hello Sajid


            Require some more details

            1. From START to 1st ACTIVE what will be the status? ACTIVE or NOT ACTIVE?

            2. FROM 2nd ACTIVE to END what will be the status? ACTIVE?


            AS per my understanding

            ACTIVE sec = (11:14:45 - 11:14:03) = 42 Sec

            NOT ACTIVE sec= (11:14:48 - 11:14:45) = 3 Sec



            ACTIVE sec = (11:14:45 - 11:14:03) = 42 Sec + (11:14:50 - 11:14:48) = 2 Sec

            So the total ACTIVE sec = 44 sec

            NOT ACTIVE sec= (11:14:48 - 11:14:45) = 3 Sec + (11:14:03 - 11:14:00) = 3 sec

            So the total NOT ACTIVE sec = 06 sec


            Please confirm if I am on right track.

              Hi Shin,

              There can be any number of ACTIVE and NOT ACTIVE states between Start Date and End Date.

                Hi Jaideep,


                In the above example. NOT ACTIVE will be (11:14:48 - 11:14:45) = 3 Sec

                Rest everything will be under ACTIVE, that is the business logic being followed.
