Does anyone know what program I can use to get automatic lottery updates? 

Something kind of how we receive here...in the daily numbers page

I need something like this because i'm focusing to much on updating and I miss out on things, if I had an automated update, I can focus more on the workout.

        Some commercial software have an update service which is activated when you visit their websites.  At one time I used Lotto Pro and for a quarterly fee of $25, you could download an updated file daily which included every game in the program.    I've since switched to a program I wrote myself and find it's just as easy to go to the state website and update my files manually since I only track four games, PowerBall, MegaMillions, Ohio Classic Lotto and Rolling Cash5 provide more action then I can afford or need.

          Thank you for responding

          I'm deciding to just create my own system in excel.  I will probably just do to updates per day(one after all mid draws and one after all eve draws)

          From my understanding the schedule in daily games stays the same Mon-Sat....Sun is the only day with less draws.

          am I right?

              Would Todds Lottery Post Results Gadget  work

              If not if you Google there are some other free gadgets that will download customized reults to your desktop

                  You are just looking for FL updates correct? Also which game(s) are you needing updates for?

                    Excel is Web Friendly: You can Import the Draws for each State: Directly from their Websites.

                      Ive tried to import FL's results from PDF to Excel without success. The PDF is too big because the records go back many many years.

                       

                      I've painstakenly manually entered the results into excel over many hours.

                       

                      If you have a suggestion as to how to import years of results please let me know!

                       

                      Thank you

                        You need to convert the pdf file to a csv file: Separate the csv file into individual games (Pick3 Day, Pick 3 Eve, etc.): Then import the csv file into Excel.

                          Thx Raven, Ive tried that before but unfortunately the page breaks/format of the PDF that FL lottery provides is not setup like a standard PDF.  Anytime I try to add breaks for the date & winning #s the sheet comes out all jacked up.

                           

                          Ill look into it a little more to see if I can get the formatting to match up

                           

                          Thanks for the help
