        I tried OpenOffice Base but it will not export the Table to the correct .db (database). Matter of fact, OO Base will not even export a table at all.   I tried Google search with the same question.  Access 2010 no longer supports Paradox from what I read.

        Maybe someone here at LP might suggest a FREE text to paradox (.db) program to use.  I found a program called Data Quick 6.6 but it is "buggy".

        I could not find anything "From to.db, only .db to -> Whatever."

          That is the same thing I found.  I searched all over for tips using OpenOffice.  I figured it was FREE and wanted to use OpenOffice "Base" and OpenOffice "Calc" to create the .db (database) files for Lightning Bolt.

            For the pick 3 game and:

            Strategy #1 needs to work 40 or more past draws, so at least 40.

            # 2 needs at least 40.

            # 3 At least 2 past draws.

            # 4 Needs 60 or more.

            # 5 Needs 40 or more.

            # 6 Needs 3 or more.

            # 7 Needs at least 40.

            #8 Needs at least 40.

            #9 Needs at least 40.

            #10 Needs at least 40.

            So based on that 200 to 300 past draws should be enough if you also want to check the ranking, otherwise maybe 100 would do.

            --------------------

            For the pick 4 game it says that it needs at least 40 past draws for any or all of the strategies.

              I used to own the  program, but when I moved, I can't find it. Don't remember if it came on a CD or floppy. Results were so-so. Nothing spectacular and too many combos to play.

                Most of your hits are going to come from Strategies 1 and 2.  Your straights mainly come from strategy 6.  Doubles mainly come from strategies 7 and 8.  Winsumloosesome Great Job!  Lightning bolt really looks at the last 40 draws so anything past 40 other than strategy 4 you only need the last 40 draws to get accurate combos to play!   Hope this helps! 

                 WinkThumbs UpI Agree!

                  Sage thanks for your information.  Keep this in mind.

                  I also wanted to ask if anyone knows how each strategy is calculated to arrive at the combinations?

                    Hey Winsum-

                    Wow! What a blast from the past!

                    I do remember that it only worked off of the last 40 draws. I know that I have the book that accompanied the software and it explained somewhat of what each of the strategies tried to accomplish. But, I would have to find it.

                    The software was created by Dean Salisbury. I wonder if it would operate in Windows 7 64 bit. I have my doubts.

                    Good to see you posting again Winsum!

                      I wish I still had that book also. 

                      I'm also looking for LottoPro book from 1987 lol
