Can someone suggest software that will "flip" the order of my numbers vertically? My Excel tools aren't working. Help!!Confused

Thanks, any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Hello FrankieH,

    I found this neat little DOS utility called UPDOWN.exe at:

    http://www.saliu.com/free-lotto-tools.html

    Scroll all the way down the page, and it's just above the yellow rectangle. It takes a plain ASCII file and reverses it, even if the data is arranged in columns.  Include the file extension for both the input and output file, e.g. in.txt out.txt

    If you prefer a Windows program try CoolRevGui.exe (about half-way down the page just above MARKOV.exe) at:

      hi guys

       

      I like the ion updown for DOS  but I would like to know what order the program works best with , newest at the top or newest at bottom. I have down loaded the software but have not tried it yet.

        All UPDOWN and CoolRevGui do is to reverse the order of a file. They aren't prediction programs.

          find the 1st empty column near your other column[s] and enter from top to bottom 1 to whatever the last row number is, best way to do this is just enter the 1 in the first row and 2 in the second row and then click on it and highlight both rows and roll it down to the bottom which excel should autofill with descending numbers.

           

          Then select all the colums including the new column of descending numbers and then click on Data - Sort - Sort by the new column - then select the descending and no header at the bottom

          enter

           

          should work

          goodluck

                For use with VRA your data should have the earliest result at the top and the latest at the bottom.

                    Your not doing anything wrong valelli.  I can't use excel sheets either as (.csv) so I save it as a .csv then use goldenpen (a free program at LDIR website) open it with that and save it as a text file.

                        if you save your excel file as .csv, then the numbers will be seperated by a ;
                        (that is, if the numbers are each in a different column)

                        Now open it with notepad and use the replace function. Replace all the ; by a space. The file is now ready to be used by VRA.

                          notepad takes forever to replace all those if you have alot, use Microsoft Word it does it MUCH faster, then copy it back to the notepad or whatever

                            True, notepad is very slow at replacing. I just mentioned it b/c any windows-system has it.

                            Or from excel, just save it as .txt, should also work.

                              Well, after struggling with the EuroMillions results it appears that VRA predictions start to break down after six numbers. EuroMillions uses seven, and I can barely get two numbers, no matter how I juggle dimension and delay. The alternative is to split them into the five main numbers, and the two 'lucky stars'.
