I'm developing a data logging application using VB for the actual logging to a MySQL database. I'm reading a value from a device and then running an insert query every minute. This is great but if the value doesnt change all day then my records are going to all be the same. I'd like to try and calculate the percentage of change on the value and only run the insert query if the percentage of change is greater than, say 5%.
Does this sound possible and would anyone mind in posting some sample code?
