Hi Homerbet,
Do you think the programmer that you used would be able to do slightly more complicated things and understand exactly what is needed? I understand quite a few programmers on their are from india and although they usually have the ability to do the work I have found in the past when I have tried to do some none bf work from india that I end up banging my head against the wall.

Im looking to do something through excel but Ive no idea how or where to start.

Thx
steve

Here's my spreadsheet that sort of does what you need.
Run the spreadsheet with macros enabled and let it do its thing for a few seconds.
Copy data from here and paste in new CSV if you need.

Hi steven1976

Apologies for taking a while to respond.

The programmer I used was from mauritius. his link is here:

http://www.freelancer.com.au/u/HyderBan ... eMe_Search

His communication was excellent no problems at all and worked with me everystep of the way (and yes I did every dumb mistake possible :shock: )

However that said he is a programmer predominantly focussed on web scraping and HTML. If you need excel I cannot guarantee what his skills are.

I have to say the next post looks interesting from switesh. would probably have saved me sometime and money ;)

Hi Switesh

I did have a look at your file and while it lists the races what I had designed for me was for the detail of each race card to be extracted.

a sample of my file is attached not sure if others would find this useful...

Euler if you are doing it in future releases it would be interesting to see what you and others think of this format?

Cheers

I love the CSV race card - This could make things much easier.
I have been using a freelancer (from Odesk) to manually download historic race cards into Excel. The process was rather complicated, but I have been able to look at tipsters predictions for the last couple of months & the results - identifying whether I could make money backing or laying their tips.
Has anyone managed to download historic race cards into CSV? Historic race cards are available on AtTheRaces, but the process to extract the data seems quite tricky.

I use Web Content Extractor. I download all the days racing and export it from WCE as a CSV file and then import it into a MYSQL database.
Very helpful after sales. Think the program cost £50 when I bought it about 3 years ago and you can get a free trial to prove it works.

I have no connection to this company other than being a user of their software

This is not working anymore. Is there a chance you could update it so it can be used again?

Thanks in advance!
