I am wondering if someone knows how to design a search tool that I can use for the KY pic 3.  I have all of the numbers and the dates that they fell but currently seraching is very, very, very, slow.  I want to be able to search by number  and  to search by date..GA used to have something like this on their site..you could put the date in and all of the numbers that fell on that date would show up, or you could put a number in and it would show all of the dates that  that number had fallen on.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

You never know when you will get another hit.

    I'm sure someone can help.

    What are you using currently to do your slow search?

    Who is LenorasGifts.com?

    Regards

      Lotto Pro have a data file for all the U.S. lotteries and a search feature.  You can scroll down the data list to check by dates or you can enter the numbers and it will list all the dates that have those numbers.  I would imagine every lottery program has a similar feature.

        I am just using the find feature  for now..I am lenoras' gifts but I put the wrong url up there..see the correction..What lotto pro program???  Is it the same one where you have to buy the database every so often or at least buy access to it?  Or if it is not..where do I go to check it out?

        If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

          It's a good program; I bought a Copy when I first got involved. Costs about $50. You don't have to pay for the History Update service if you don't want to.

          A word of warning to anyone using the Histories as I do; there are duplicate entries. Check for duplicates of the same date and draw.

          For what you want to do it's probabably overkill. If Todd allocates a bit of memory for a Download Section and provides some method or procedure to upload I can knock up what you want to do in Access. I have the Developers Version so I can put a package there which includes the runtime. Maybe we'll call it the world's simplest Lotto System.

              Colin F,

              I discovered some duplicate  entries in the Buckeye5 file when I was checking for repeats of combinations of fives and notified  them and they corrected them.  I got a thank you note from Steve Lake for bringing it to his attention.  I did it because the mistakes had to be corrected when ever I updated my files which I also use in some other programs I wrote.  The data files are in a format that make them easy to covert to a text format that my other programs use.

              RJOh

              *Littleoldlady: You don't have to buy their update service if you prefer to update the files yourself.  I buy it because it allows me to download the history of any lottery in the world and check it out without during any additional typing and all their files are updated within 24 hrs of the last drawing.

                   (or anyone)

                  Re Pick3/Pick4 Sorter

                  What other Sorts/Filters would you Like?

                  So far we have:

                  Sort by Date

                  Sort by Number (any Column)

                  Do you want Decending/Ascending?

                  Regards

                  Colin

                      I know it doesn't help you right now, but Lottery Post Platinum members will have this ability for every game.  Probably in 2-4 weeks.

                       

                      Check the State Lottery Report Card
                      What grade did your lottery earn?
