Thank you! Thank you!! It works. I have a table of 46 rows each with columns A to U. I just need to study your code and change it to work with those rows and columns. Also will input 5 numbers. Use GWBASIC quite a lot. So I understand the logic. It's just learning the language.

I looked at some of your blog. I don't understand what i was looking at or what I should be looking for.  The way you have the numbers arranged is different.  is this a before the draw or after arrangement?  the way the hits line up was very interesting. I would like to hear more about your methods.

Hi p8

I have been working to get my boat ready for sea, so have only just seen this, I have read many topics on LP and most of you are using systems/methods that come from a program, I do not believe in programs they are desogned to take money from you and not give, my point was if members can pick a number that is successful then they should turn there methods to search for the space that represents the number hence you get the lines that contain all the spaces for that number, I am not blessed with PC code so I can't help anyone there, now some members can access three numbers so they should be doing the same then they will be makeing other numbers more realistic, for instance weds spaces = sats spaces in the algorithym would be nearer in my opinion, hope this helps.

If you do not have Excel, go buy a copy NOW!  While you are out and about, stop in at your favorite bookstore and purchase a copy of "VBA for Dummies".  That's what I did and I am grateful that I did.  Keeping up with the draws is easy.  Learning something new is priceless.  Using your newfound knowledge to discover what you want to know is even more priceless (if such is possible).

Now you are ready to consider what you think needs exploring for you will have the tools necessary to do that exploring.  With a few keystrokes, you can code the computer to look for all the winning combinations that contain three odd/two even numbers, or those with repeating numbers, or those with consecutive numbers, or those........well, you get the idea.

Your journey thru LottoLand should be rewarding in more ways than hitting the jackpot.  You should learn something along the way.  And what you learn can never be taken away.  Hitting the jackpot would be nice but knowledge, knowledge gained by your own endeavors, will much more satisfying than 20 million dollars (did I just say that?  Man!  I'm so full of it tonight).

"If you do not have Excel, go buy a copy NOW!  While you are out and about, stop in at your favorite bookstore and purchase a copy of "VBA for Dummies".  ............ Thank-you Gasmeterguy this applies to me.

if you use gwbasic you will have very little problem with vba. just a few different commands.  ability to copy and paste make it much easier to write programs and or modify where your code is located

let me know if i can be of help

The arrangement of the numbers is the numbers put into the spreadsheet since the 10 Jan if you study Weds and go to Sats you will see there are in fact 2 different configorations of numbers mixing together, I have not configored them in the seperate days it is mearely to display to members where I think the real answer comes from, you know if you search a number you get lots of other numbers come up with it  , and if search for the empty cell for the number it selects all the lines that contain the cells, if you have more numbers you are sure will come out then apply that number as well and the chances ar if you swap from Wed to Sat they will contain the other cells you are looking for try it and you will see I'm correct.

I'm not sure if that was a question.  If it was, simplest method is to record a macro. set different cells to different colors. then look at your macro code to see different #'s to use for different colors. tinting and shading are beyond where I want to be at this time. I stick to basic colors.

Billybuoy

I have read your response several times.  apparently my mind is going in a different direction from yours. I just do not understand what you are doing.  I must be misreading something somewhere.  I'll go back to your blog then maybe a light will come on.  thanks for making me think even if I don't understand.

I too have read this several times plus the previous post and even the recent post and  I still can't figure out  what billybouy is trying to say about spaces and lines.

If you look at the After file you will see six columns of of numbers colored in yellow for you to look at those lines that you see on the file are the lines that have been selected to form the winning numbers displayed in yellow that is where the answer comes from a selection of lines forming the answer and is shown in the spaces.

Another way to look at it is whatever spaces there are in weds they are in sats too.

Is there a way to check the color of a cell?? Can use an 'IF' with Cells(x, y).Interior.ColorIndex = 3 to check it's color??
