IntervalMatch or another solution?

I have tables as follows:

PhoneCalls:

CustomerID, Call_Start, Call_End

Orders:

CustomerID, Order_Time, Order_ID

I want to append a field to Orders which has value 'O' if the Customer made an order during a phone call (ie. Order_Time is between Call_Start and Call_End) and has value 'L' if the Customer made an order within 7 days of a Call_End.

I feel this should be quite straight-forward but I'm not good with IntervalMatch and I cannot get it working.

Is this a good approach, or is there a better one?

Thanks

Re: IntervalMatch or another solution?

And if you want to tag also the order done in the 7 days you can change the end of the script like this:

Left Join (Orders)

IntervalMatch(Order_Time, Customer_ID)

LOAD [Call Start],

  [Call End],

  Customer_ID

Resident PhoneCalls;

Left Join (Orders)

IntervalMatch(Order_Time, Customer_ID)

LOAD [Call Start] as [Call Start7],

  [Call End]+7 as [Call End7],

  Customer_ID

Resident PhoneCalls;

DROP Table PhoneCalls;

FinalOrders:

LOAD *,

  If(Len(Trim([Call Start])) > 0, 'O', if(Len(Trim([Call Start7])) > 0,'L')) as Flag

Resident Orders;

Re: IntervalMatch or another solution?

I think you can do this with Interval Match. Do you have a sample where we can show you how it is implemented?

Re: IntervalMatch or another solution?

Hi,

Try this

HistoOrder:

IntervalMatch(Order_Date,customer_Id)

load

  Call start

  Call end

  customer_Id

Resident your secondtable;

Join load *

Resident your secondtable;

Re: IntervalMatch or another solution?

May be this:

Re: IntervalMatch or another solution?

Thanks to everyone.

I couldn't get this to work in my model ......and then:

I realised it was because my TimeStampFormat was incompatible ! When I changed it, it was fine. An easy mistake ?
