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#?
