## How create bar chart showing the count for Current week, prior week and third week?

Communicator

Hi all, I've just learned how to use the commands below but not sure how to apply it to a bar chart:

``````| where test >= relative_time(now(), "-14d") AND test < relative_time(now(), "-7d")
``````

Very simple data:

``````Date        Sold
2016-11-12  9
2016-11-13  8
2016-12-14  2
2016-12-12  1
2016-12-12  0
...
``````

So basically I need to sum up all SOLD TICKETS per Current week, prior week and third week.
How do I do that with stats or some other commands? This is as far as I got:

``````| timechart span=24h count("100_ of Ads Viewed") AS Total
``````

That shows me the count for every month but I only need to count Current week, prior week and third week.
I need to mimic the graphic below: Thank you

How about you use the `relative_time` to calculate when it happened and then chart using it. Let's say that the dates above are coming in a field called `test` in epoch time then try something like:

``````your query to return events earliest="-21d"
| eval myTime=case(test >= relative_time(now(), "-7d"), "CurrentWeek", test >= relative_time(now(), "-14d") AND test < relative_time(now(), "-7d", "PriorWeek", test >= relative_time(now(), "-21d") AND test < relative_time(now(), "-14d", "ThirdWeek", 1=1, "Other")
|  stats count("100_ of Ads Viewed") AS Total by myTime
``````

Assumption above is "-7d" means "seven days prior to now" and not exactly "Current Week starting from Monday"

If `test` field has date as a string then take out the epoch time from it first, using `strptime`, before the case statement in above search as follows:

``````...| eval epochTest=strptime(test, "%Y-%m-%d")
| eval myTime=case(epochTest >= relative_time(now(), "-7d"), "CurrentWeek",... and so on
``````

Try like this

``````    your base search earliest=-2w@w latest=now | timechart span=1w count("100_ of Ads Viewed") AS Total
| eval period=case(_time>=relative_time(now(),"@w"),"This Week", _time>=relative_time(now(),"-1w@w"),"Prior Week",1=1,"Third Week") | table period Total
