    Unless the program offers a database Import function or the databases are in plain text format you are likely going to have to hand enter the draw data.  This isn't the worst possible thing because you will then have the chance to test the results. 

    Lottoman software was programmed by David Piel who was also Mr. Lucky for Lotto World magazine.  It was later sold to another programmer who was going to "make it work" under the name of The Winning Ticket, but it never got out of beta and the beta didn't pick winners.

      Read the help or somewhere in there. There is also an extensiive  manual. There is an import in ascii form that you can do. Sorry it has been to long to remember.

        This is the format (I save as txt)

        10/10/05,4,1,0
        10/11/05,5,0,0
        10/12/05,5,0,0
        10/13/05,4,1,0
        10/14/05,2,3,0
        10/15/05,5,0,0
        10/16/05,5,0,0
        10/17/05,5,0,0

        I usually put what I want to import into the data folder of lottoman for easy access.  When you click import a box will open click data folder if your file was put there then choose the type it was saved as and it will show up.  The next popup boxes are self explanatory.  Very simple, if you have any trouble just ask.  Pays to read the help files over and over (well for me anyway) and there's a good bit of them.

          About the help files.

          While the LOTTOMAN.HLP can be read by Win98SE, I find that neither WordPad nor NotePad can read the Pick3.DOC file and the TUTORIAL.DOC which are in the DOCS folder.

          I guess that Microsoft Word 2.0 or some such program is needed to read them, in addition to that problem, the Document file  PICK3.DOC might be corrupted.

          While perhaps (Maybe) those Document files are not strictly needed it would be nice to have them.

          As I said, I can read the LOTTOMAN.HLP file.

            Well I was able to convert and recover a (Good?) portion of those 2 files, some portions of the 2 texts were lost, but a good portion recovered, with those and the program's "Regular" help file it might be enough, maybe.
