      I need to try and learn some Excel.

         I use Pen,   Paper,    Floresent High-lighters,   and Sometimes  a Blacklight

                             it kinda looks like a spreadsheet though, sometimes.

        i use excel for simple counting...as i am not good with averages or standard deviation or all that baloney stuff...but i do print out matrix templates and i also fill them in...and i use red pen...green pen...blue pen...highlighters of all colors...pencils of all thicknesses, number 2, mechanical...markers...tape...glue...

        if they had taught us how to win the lottery in kindergarten...i might be better at it right now...(although i did love those blocks!)

        i keep getting that "excel is not responding" message!!! FRUSTRATING!!!  I hope i saved my work!!!

              there is a great function called countif...you can mark your excel spreadsheet with the winners, and then countif the values, and then organize the values looking for different F.F....and bottoms...

               

              its easy.  I personally taught T*T and SM everything they know about this...Jester

              = countif(Range,0)

               

              Just kidding guys.

                      I use a VBA function to count amount of different numbers in a set. Found on the internet.

                            If you are a lotto fanatic then Excel is a must.  This tool will do more for you than pen and paper.

                            Right now I am gathering data.  I have a VBA program running.  At this point in time, the program is 25% done and has been running for 24 hours.  At this rate we are talking about a four day run.  I could not hope to accomplish this with pen and paper.

                              Is 4 days of VBA run time not a little overkill?  I mean usually when you guess right you guess fast, because it jumps out at you.  Your intuition points it out and the other part of your brain tries to verify it.   But you are right, excel is a must there is no easier method to track patterns such as the favorite FF, and other hitting patterns.
