    Unanswered: Substract datetime rows with where clause

    Hi there.

    I have a table where are stored some values such as:

    Id, Mobile, Speed, DateTime
    175080, 1886, 40, 2012-10-03 08:07:56
    175081, 2470, 75, 2012-10-03 08:08:48
    175082, 1886, 0, 2012-10-03 08:10:59
    175083, 1886, 20, 2012-10-03 08:12:59

    And I used to use a query for substracting these dates and then get the difference between two dates:

    SELECT,, f.DateTime as StardDate, f2.DateTime as EndDate,
    (f.DateTime -f2.DateTime) AS difference
    FROM table f, table f2
    where =
    order by f.DateTime desc

    The problem is that previously I only have one mobile and now I have more.

    How can I just substract the dates of the mobile 1886 ?

    Best regards.

    this idea of joining on id = id - 1 is flawed | @rudydotca

    I had written a small white paper on how this can be done using user session variables.
