I am looking for a program that can take previous lotto results and search for the winning numbers in each position then assign a value as to how many times each number appeared in each position, for example in a pick 4 lotto I would like to go back  50 games and do a statistical analysis of each winning number and print out a positional chart that would tell me how many times each number was a winning number in each position from 1 to 4. Do you have a program like this available  on this website for Platinum memembers.

thanks

If the data is already in spreadsheet format (I doubt this due to leading zeroes) the string funtion would be a starting point. If the data is in a text file, I'd convert it into a ".csv" file, import the data into a spreadsheet, and use the "COUNTIF" function 10 times for each position.

Does your  lotto result show the exact draw order for each winning number

What I meant is on your result page it states the following

The drawing results are sorted from low to high numbers, so a positional search matches the sorted position, not the order that the numbers were originally drawn

I would like to know if your program has the ability to sort  the order that the numbers were originally drawn

No, it can't do that.  Most lotteries only report the sorted order.

You can try Lotto Architect. It allows to manually define the draws to be used and the analysis you are looking for is called "Numbers position" under the rejection filters system. The history draws are sorted however and you cannot print the results.

Thanks for  providing me with the information on your program, I have just downloaded the program successfully and have began to create the lottery database, I am looking forward to the actual analysis as soon as the calculation process is complete, then I will import the data files. You have obviously done extensive research and programming to create this program and I must commend you on your work. Good luck with your masters program, I am confident that you will be successful in your future endeavor.

How can I tell when the calculation process is complete, because there is no indication or progress report on the screen?

You can find detailed instructions at the forums of the program about importing history draws, since this is a common issue and several people requested advice on that. The classic probability process will self-close when its done. A window should be open whilst this process takes place. If not, then the calculations are over. Also any process that requires time to complete, it will display a progress bar to indicate so in its relevant window and/or at the bottom text bar. If nothing is displayed, then there are no calculations taking place.

cheers

Do you know if Lotto Architect works with Keno? I'm trying to find a program that'll give me the dates for all the pairs but it seems hopeless. It looks like I'll have to get busy writing my own unless someone out there has already done it.

So afr I have been unsuccessful in my attempt to import my data files into your program, its a bit frustrating and I have basically given up. I followed your instructions carefully but for some reason the program will not load the data. I even converted the data into excel  text format.

Hi LottoBuster,

Expert Lotto works with Keno. The program has pairs (and triplet) statistics....(Occurrence,skip,avg skip, repeats, etc.) You'll have also the option to calculate the stats for a date range...

Good luck,

Thanks, that's one I haven't tried yet and will take a look at. It sounds just like what I'm looking for. :)

The typical imported text format (not excel, it contains special characters) is:

D/M/YYYY n1 n2 n3 n4 n5 ... (one draw per line)

Also, no headers or other information should be in the text file.

At the import process enable the parameter "the file contains dates of draws" and leave the rest as is.

Then click import.

If your text file is different than the above, then post a sample to give you the correct parameters.

I have greatly simplified the import process where all you have to do is to pick the file to import (no parameters need to be set or modifications to the file) and I'll make this available at the next release.
