    Do you have a standard format for all your lottery data bases or are they tailored for the individuals who want them for a specific program.

      SergeM, I wanted to ask you about the keno generated numbers you have on the site? How do you get them to format like that, for Canada?

       

      Also is it better for a person to use Internet explorer, or Mozilla Firefox, for looking at your site, or any site?

       

      Thank you for your time!

      Elizabeth

        Hi RJOh,

        I had been doing all of the files by hand in order to compare them.  Serge has built an excellent database for P3 for CA on his website and I am looking forward to working with that.

        Thank you Serge !!!!

        Type   Hurray!  Hurray!  Hurray!  Hurray!  Hurray!

        Sounds like you found what you were looking for, a data base of CA pick3 and a program to displace the data the way you want. 

        I assumed you had an established data base and just need a program to display the data in a special way.  Years ago when I was using LottoPro, it had data bases for all the active lotteries in the US and some foreign countries but couldn't display the data the way I wanted so I wrote little GWBasic programs to do that.  Now that I'm learning QB64 I was thinking I might try the samething again. 

        When I updated some of my own GWBasic programs to run using QB64 the data files didn't have to change in most cases, just where there were blank spaces since QB treat them differently.

        Some state website have all the data in a CVS format which I think can be read by Excel but can also be converted to be read by other programs.

          I tailor all databases.

          I do maintenance and improvements. It is pretty hard to do because the games are different. Another problem is when somebody trusted with a database is messing up the input. Users can only add data but not remove or modify it. My idea is that if they mess up with the input, they have to feel that they get a wrong output. If that happens I put a remark on the page with the one doing the input. I don't let it pass incognito, same for professionals who post anything in the comments. I am the nanny for all the little schmucks who are not doing their tasks correctly.

          I made a backup of CA Pick 3, just in case.

            I appended a second table with false boxed, boxed and straight, list by case, by drawing.

                Thank you Serge !  I will be back on your site soon to update the draws.  I really appreciate all of your hard work.  I hope other players from CA will check out your site.  It is an excellent resource and I will post a link to the page on the CA thread.

                    I assumed you would never allow anyone else to modify the official data bases but only copy/duplicate them for their personal use.  A double or wrong entry could make the results of any software useless. 

                    When I used LottoPro some years back I would find errors in its data bases that I used and would notify its webmaster so he could correct them so they wouldn't reappear in future updates.  I now use my own software and maintain my own data bases for the few games I play.  There are companies that will do that for you if you have a website with too many data bases for the webmaster to maintain.

                          1st->2nd N1->N1 N1->N2 ... N3->N3

                          Similar to my post in the mathematics forum.
                          The results show the totals for all drawings.

                          The complexity will raise with time.
                          I started with simple charts.

                            I can appreciate the amount of work it takes to run a lottery website and maintain data bases which can change every day not to mention the knowledge of programming needed to write routines that manipulate the data bases for mining.

                            Teaching myself to program and writing a few programs for my person use and maintaining a few data bases for the games I play has almost become a full time hobby.  I can't image find the time to run a website especially if you have to earn a living doing something else.
