I have 2 columns start and stop I want to count the number of start stop events according to the following rules 

counting starts when first discharge occurs

• any start in the first 12 hour block is counted as 1 event

• any new start in the next and subsequent 24 hour blocks are each counted as 1 additional event

• this counting continues until there is a 24 hour block with no event.

• for the next event after 24 hour block with no event, the sequence begins again

Could anyone help me please

 

Thank you in advance

@kenblack , You can get diff with min date time of block and use that to get id

diff with min date time block

new col= datediff( minx(filter(Table, [block] =earlier([block]) ),[date time]),[date time],hours)

Hello Pragati 11 sorry to be a pain but i have tried to see how I can share a sample with you would you mind guiding me through that as well

 

Really sorry but thank you

Hi @kenblack 

You could upload a excel file to one drive for bussiness, then share the url with us.

It is better to make the a small sample with expected result.
