Question Help

I was wondering if anyone knew of how to make a software for horse racing. I have seen people with software in Google Sheets (or Excel), and wondering if anyone would give me examples on the software or how to actually make it. Anything will help. Thanks

Too many good programs out there. Youíre nuts if you build your own. Think about what your times worth?

You disagree with the too many good programs part, or how much a coder's time is worth?

First, how will you open the data file and get the data into the program? You have to be able to this before you can start to manipulate said data.

Here's a link to an older thread (from 2004) that contains VB (or VBA) code snippets showing how to open a data file:
http://www.paceadvantage.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=15725

Hint: see posts #7, #11, #46, and #47.



That said, you should know going in that writing your own handicapping program is an endeavor that, in all likelihood, will take a significant amount of time.

Barbaric amounts of coding, debugging, refining, remodeling and even revamping.

Any commercial program that sells well has a following that will drive prices down.

I disagree that it's not worth the time. It most definitely is if you know what you want and you have the $ to get it programmed. If you have a programmer that already has the brisnet format to in port pp's your talking about basically writing code for your custom ratings and how you want everything displayed.
