Yes. With draws browken down into columns in a database>>table. I can easily add new draws and update front end data with fresh stats. I know the data sets I have are basic at the moment. However, I'm looking to expand on that. As seasoned lotto people, I was hopeful that there would be ideas out there for stats that one would like to see. You wouldn't find it useful to have your dream stats all worked out that auto updated and was available without you having to do anything beyond clicking a link? I can run numbers all day in Excel but that would only benefit me (well, _may_ benefit me... it's still gambling).

 

 

JKing, thank you for the positivity.

    SergeM,

      How about some specific software or info to help him along his path. His methods may not be yours or mine, but help, not shortcomings, is what he asked for. *S* We all had to start somewhere.

    For programs you can google your way. There are surely more than hundred programs out there. It isn't only about analysing, but also combining, filtering, budgetting, printing and so on. Just pick any to start with!

      This needs only a right click to update, the rest is full automatic. Slow? No.

        Serge, you will be my favorite critic. The image is very fuzzy, can't get much detail from it. Would you give me the name of that program?

            hah, nice. Thought it was just an Excel layout within a program. Looks like you put some work into that. Very nice.

              Sure, but for these charts this wasn't necessary.

              There are many Excel users, VBA- and VB programmers here.

                There are many Excel users and VB programmers here but they are working on their own ideas.  If any one is interested in having their ideas worked on, it's better to learn how to do it themselves and that takes time.
