# C# - Calculate A Formula Which Changes Value Each Day?

Feb 25, 2009

I use the following columns stored in a SQL table called tb_player:

Date of Birth (Date), Times Played (Integer), Versions (Integer)

to calculate a "playvalue" (integer) in the following formula:

playvalue = (Today - Date of Birth) * Times Played * Versions

I display upto 100 of these records with the associataed playvalue on a webpage at any time.

My question is, what is the most efficient way of calculating this playvalue given it will change only once a day, due to the (today-date of birth) changing? The other values (times played & versions) remain the same.

Is there a better way than calculating this on the fly each time for the 100 records? If so, is it more efficient to do the calculation in a stored proc or in VB.NET/C#?

## Excel Formula To Calculate Difference Between 1st Value And Last Value In A Column?

Aug 27, 2011

I have the following columns : (Using Excel Formula)

A B
------------------------
1 | Date | Value |
------------------------
2 | 8/20/2011 | 92.8 |
3 | 8/21/2011 | 92.4 |

[code]....

I want to calculate the difference between 1st Value (B2) and last Value (last populated row in column B)

Edited :

Using formula : =B2-B6 is not what's required. (I want diff in Cell C2)

I want when the user enters the value in B7 it automatically shows the difference between B2 and B7, when he populates B8 then it shows the diff between B2 and B8 and so on.. I don't want some direct method to do this in Excel and not by iterating all values to check the last value.

## Converting Formula In C To .net?

Oct 9, 2009

I am reproducing a program written in C to vb.net and I am getting different results on a math formula.  I am sure it is something simple that I am overlooking. Here is the formula in C

num = (10 * 9 * 80900 * 0501) & 0xffff;

num = (10 * 9 * 80900 * 0501) AND &HFF

## How To Generate The Formula

Apr 1, 2009

how to generate the formula. want to use arraylist to store and for loops to loop the formula til the system can detect which staff it should giv the ticket to..below is the scenario:this is a helpdesk system..so each ticket they submit muz be auto assigned to a staff to attend their ticket..each staff has a different quota..so i came out wid this algorithm on hw to determine who the ticket shld go to..

for ex: i set one ticket's quota is 7%

staff A's quota - 47% staff B's quota - 35% staff C's quota - 18% so to knw how many tickets A get den B getx 1 ticket and how many tickets B get den C gets 1i came out wid a calculation like this -

Staff A - 47% / 7% = 6.7(max no.of tickets he can receive foe a period of time)
Staff B - 35% / 7% = 5
Staff C - 18% / 7% = 2.5

so first i compare A&B whr i took 6.7/5 = 1.3 -> so every 1.3 ticket A gets,B gets 1 ticket den i compare B&C whr i took 5/2.5 = 2 -> so every 2 ticket B gets,C gets 1 ticket i wanna implement this concept in my code..but i dunno how to come up wid this formula..

## Getting Values From Listbox And Using In Formula?

Mar 30, 2011

I'm trying to create a calculator that does this formula : Amount=Principal*(1+InterestRate) The point of it is to Calculate the compound interest earned over however many years the user selects between 1-15 from a listbox. The user also inputs the investment & interest rate. When calculate is clicked the results show in another listbox below.

year 1 \$\$\$\$\$\$
year 2 \$\$\$\$\$\$
etc

I stopped the code at Year 2 as it repeats the ElseIf to EndIf unitl selectedIndex = 15 & intYear 16.

it works for Year 1 but the problem comes with Year 2-15. it needs to take the value from the previous result in lstOutput and use it in the formula for principle.

## Efficient Way To Get Number Than Using Distance Formula?

Dec 4, 2010

While learning to Orientate of the Last layers of a rubik's cube, I thought that it would be fun to make a vb.net application for it(I know that it's super hard to do)I'm starting around the center cube, but was wondering if I did a part right..I'm working with squares, and was wondering the length from one corner to another. [code] Trying to figure out the distance from the top left to bottom right,I used the distance formula to test it out and got 70.71067811865475 sqrt((-50-0)^2+(-50-0)^2)Is there an easier or more efficient way to get this number than using the distance formula?

## Finding Right Formula And Refreshing Values

i am currently making a project which is to make a cinema screen booking system. Im a beginner of course`*My main problem is that although i have most of what is working i need to find a formula to give the full result (overall price) in a label.*My other problem is the fact that when i interact with my form certain things dont auto refresh when i change certain values e.g i change number of seats but it doesnt auto refresh the price from times1 to times2. OR i click one discount radiobutton which works then another after but nothing changes and it keeps the first radiobutton's value.Okay in my menu i have a ComboBox (ComboBoxScreen) for choosing the film and there are 3 films to choose from in the drop menu each with their own price.I also have a Textbox (NumberSeats) for inputting a number of seats you want to book for the chosen film.And lastly there are 3 radio buttons each with different discounts.. e.g No discount, 10% off and 25% off. If selected each gives discount to full price.A formula to work out the overall price uses all three functions/tools above.My current code for the combobox and radiobutton part is as follows: [code]

## VS 2010 - Using CPU Hardware ID As Activation Formula

Mar 24, 2011

I am going to publish my program soon. As for the product serial activation, I have combined the user machine's CPU ID and the MAC Address to make a formula. Here is the class code to find processor ID and MAC which I have found on net and used :

Friend Function GetProcessorId() As String
Dim strProcessorId As String = String.Empty
Dim query As New SelectQuery("Win32_processor")
Dim search As New ManagementObjectSearcher(query)
Dim info As ManagementObject
[Code] .....

There a few questions I want to ask to be sure about my program activation :
- These 2 function code, Are they safe to use ? Is there any possibility that one of them or both doesn't return anything ? ( because of user permissions,os type, etc...)
- Is it possible that somehow the user machine won't have MAC Address?
- Is Proccessor ID a Unique serial for each machine in the world?

I am trying to make a loop to calculate the total costs for 12 days of costs. It has to compound sort of though. I need the total = cost for day 1(includes day 1) + cost for day 2(includes day 1 and 2) + cost for day 3(includes day 1, 2, and 3).....up to day 12. I have a for/next loop in my array, but it calculates the total for 12 days, but I need it to add as explained above. I have been strategizing and the program needs V= day 1 then add V to T. Then V needs to clear and then loop again so V=day 1 + day 2 then add V to T. Then V needs to clear and loop again so V=day 1 + day 2 + day 3 then add V to T and clear V.........up until all days are added together. If anyone has any suggestions or any idea of what I am talking about please comment! Here is the link to another forum that might explain the program in more detail:
