DB2 Advanced Query

DB2 Advanced Query

DB2 Advanced Query

Hi Programers,

Could you support me with a question that I could not solve?
Need to get the total time for each group, for example CREATE_TIMESTAMP column contains some time values ​​process. The ID column contains the classification of the process.

|_______ID______|_____MODEL______|_____________ CREATE_TIMESTAMP_________________
A A1 8/27/2013 12:57:05
A A1 8/29/2013 14:40:45
B B1 8/27/2013 7:04:49
B B1 8/27/2013 8:06:57
B B1 8/27/2013 9:06:57
B B1 8/27/2013 9:07:00
C C1 8/30/2013 1:28:36
C C1 8/30/2013 2:10:36
C C1 8/30/2013 2:13:40

I need to make a query to DB2 throws me the following information, based on the before table

|_______ID______|_____MODEL______|_____________TOTAL TIME_______________
A A1 2984:40
B B1 122:11
C C1 45:04

45:06 means---> 45 minutes, 6 seconds


RE: DB2 Advanced Query



select id, model, max(CREATE_TIMESTAMP)-min(CREATE_TIMESTAMP)
from .... 
is the basic query. the difference is the duration in DAYS.

It seems strange to report the results in minutes & seconds when there are DAYS & HOURS that can be displayed as HOURS:MIN:SEC otherwise report as minutes only.


glassesJust traded in my old subtlety...
for a NUANCE!tongue
