    Counting time with several changing values



      I'm kind of new with qlikview and struggling with a problem concerning counting time.


      So here is the problem:


      DateObjectIdDate (Unix timestamp)State


      States meaning 4 = Logging in a program, 5= Temporarily logging out of the program, 6= Logging in again from temporary logout. 3 = Logging out.


      1. I should be able to count certain Objects time difference between state 4 and 3. In a certain date. The tricky part is that it is possible that State 3 is missing from certain Object on a certain date, then i should be able to stop the counting on clock 0.00.

      2. Then i should be able to calculate the time difference between 5 and 6 in a day. Counting the time on temporarily logged out state.


      Hopefully someone has some ideas how this could be counted, really appciate it !

          See attached qvw. It calculates session times, ending a session on a date change. It doesn't do this for temporary logouts/logins. Is that what you need?

              Hey Gysbert,


              Tested the example you gave me and it works pretty well!


              Only problem I have right now is some weird values on LastLogin column.


              Im getting following values in the addition of the right values:

              72626.9.20127:51:26530.1.2231 0:00:00
              72627.9.20120:00:02331.1.2231 0:00:001913968:08:34

              72629.9.20120:00:0132.2.2231 0:00:001913968:08:44

              Im now using following load:


              timestamp(ConvertToLocalTime(Date(MakeDate(1970, 1, 1) + ("EN_DATE" / 86400)), 'GMT+02:00')) as TS,
              date(floor(ConvertToLocalTime(Date(MakeDate(1970, 1, 1) + ("EN_DATE" / 86400)), 'GMT+02:00'))) as Date,
              time(frac(ConvertToLocalTime(Date(MakeDate(1970, 1, 1) + ("EN_DATE" / 86400)), 'GMT+02:00'))) as Time,

              load *,
              if(rowno()=1 and EN_STATE=4,TS,if(EN_STATE=4,TS, if(DateTicket<>peek(DateTicket),timestamp(floor(DateTicket)), peek(LastLogin)))) as LastLogin,
              if(rowno()=1 and EN_STATE=5,TS,if(EN_STATE=5,TS,peek(LastTempLogout))) as LastTempLogout,
              if(DateTicket<>peek(DateTicket) and EN_OBJECTID=peek(EN_OBJECTID),
                 interval(TS-peek(LastLogin),'hh:mm:ss')))) as SessionTime,
              if(rowno()>1,if(EN_STATE=6,interval(TS-peek(LastTempLogout),'hh:mm:ss'))) as TempLogoutTime
              Resident Event order by EN_OBJECTID, TS;

              drop Table Event;



              Also trying to figure out how to display this on Bar chart correctly.


              Really appriciate your help!

                  You're using DateTicket instead of the field Date. I noticed the Date field in your table in your first post didn't have a complete 4-digit year. And that the date didn't match the date calculated from the unix timestamp. Possibly the missing year digits is what is causing your strange LastLogin datetimes. I think you're better off using the date calculated from the unix timestamp.

                    • Re: Counting time with several changing values

                      Hey thanks for the tip! It works much better with using the timestamp instead of Dateticket.


                      One thing I didnt consider right away was that. It seems that I get EN_STATE=3 every day at midnight meaning a logoff.


                      Then at first login EN_STATE=4 meaning login after that comes always EN_STATE=5. This means that i would need the interval between states 6 and 5 In addition I got EN_INFO telling me the reason for temporary logout.

                      How is it possible to take into account that I always get combination of 4 and 5 at login. And then there can be these combinations in a same day. At same time counting the duration of State 6 and comparing that to the next State 5 value.

                          Anyone got any solutions for this problem ?

                              Haven't been able to solve this one. Here is example of the hoped outcome.


                              Need to know the difference between EN_STATES 3 and 4. And this would be calculated on EN_STATE=3 row.


                              At the beginning i get one EN_STATE=3, which would be ignored. And after EN_STATE=4 I get one EN_STATE=5 which doesnt connect to EN_STATE=6, so it would be ignored.


                              Third i Would need the the difference between EN_STATE=6 and next EN_STATE=5, and this interval would be dispalyed on the EN_STATE=6 row.


                              Hoping someone has ideas for this one
