Hello All,

I want to calculate the room charges in my application.The condition is,
If any patient registered in between 12.01 AM to 11.59 PM should be applicable for whole day charges as per room segment, i.e. General Ward, Delux, etc,
After 12 AM in night it will be applicable to charge the second day charges as per ward type.

Can anyone suggest me to do that in sql script or in coding?

Thanks for Future Help.

This is code:

decimal total_A = (Total_Hours / 24) * ChargesPer24Hour;
decimal total_B = 0;
decimal R = Total_Hours % 24;
if (R != 0)
total_B = ChargesPer24Hour;
total_B = 0;

ChargesPer24Hour taking from db for ward type charges.
Total_Hours, calculation done in SQL only and that this division will give us the exact day.

Post the code that you have used
DT_2 6-Jan-15 6:06am

The first bug which immediately catches nearly anyone's eye is: you divide by 24 in first line. If gives you total roughly 24 times less ("roughly" because of discretisation of integer type). Why it happens?

Because you put the "problem" upside down. The real total should be
decimal_total = daysOfStay * pricePerDay;

Now, the only problem is the daysOfStay. Usually people know it, not "hours". But let's assume that the system only knows check-in and check-out time. Again, normal hotel systems don't work with actual stay hours. They count days of stay and have certain checkout time, in terms of time of the day. If actual check-out time is earlier, they count days of stay, in later, one day is added.

But if we can assume that you use different system, how to get actual time of stay, to convert it to days or not? Well, it could be too much of assumption on my side, but… Let's say,
System.DateTime checkIn = System.DateTime.Now;

// ...later:

System.DateTime checkOut = System.DateTime.Now;

System.TimeSpan timeOfStay = checkOut - checkIn;

And now you can extract any time measures (total millisecond, for example :-)) or number of days, or anything else from timeOfStay:[^].

And then count those money the way you want. No need to "round" anything, fine nearest number or anything like that.
