Stall draw

Postby 813615 » Mon May 03, 2021 2:47 pm

Hi guys, tried searching but can't seem to find anything, I'm wanting to add the stall number into my strategy for selecting a trade, I can get the info onto the loader but what command do I need to write to tell excel to select the right stall number? Either select say only horses that are running from stalls 3, 4, and 5 or could do opposite and say don't trade if the horse is starting from stall 3,4,5? Got the data in the column but just not sure on the command? Thanks

The IF command would probably be the best

Thanks for reply so could I tell it to only select if the stall number is 1, 2, 3, 4 for instance? What would I type for the command? Thank you

Sorry should be a bit more specific, ideally I'd like a trigger cell so basically if the stall number is 1,2, 3, 4 put a "1" in the trigger cell or if not then a "0" thanks

Just use greater than in your calc if it's simply less than 5, otherwise you'd need to use OR if you skip any numbers.

So something like

Code: Select all
=IF(AA14<5,1,0)

Thanks for reply, how would I use the "or" command, say I wanted horses that are drawn in stalls 1,2,5,8,9 only? Cheers

The IF function in excel is basically in three parts comma separated =IF(CONDITIONS, IF TRUE , IF FALSE)

So you simply nest your OR options within the condition like so

Code: Select all
OR(AA14<3,AA14=5,AA14=8,AA14=9)


Code: Select all
=IF(OR(AA14<3,AA14=5,AA14=8,AA14=9),1,0)

Sports betting software from Gruss Software


The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
