HLW data updating

Maybee posting my question about 'Lotto Software' was in the wrong place.
I'll post it here: (with a few mods)

I tried the 'Hot Lotto Wizard' program. I do like it but...

I'd like to know how to update the datadase. It's only updated to Dec21,2002. :sad:

It seemes I could access it through Microsoft Access.
However, any time I do so I get a message...

"You can't make changes to the database objects in the database
This database was created in an earlier version of Microsoft Access."

It then asks me if I want to convert it with my updated version of Access. I did once but the program(HLW) didn't understand the database afterwards. :confused:

Has anyone managed to update the database?
How, and what program?
Can the original site offer anything?

If no one has anything, I'll just stick with the classic Ldir and LottoPro.
They've worked for me before. :smokin:

You can sure say that again Picard ... no one has yet broken your record of consecutive winning pools. :agree:

I can't answer this because I do not have that program...Maybe the person that first posted the link might help...but by looking at what is said about access and a previous version of that program when saving your file after updating maybe you can save it in that old version of access... Watch for saving under it after clicking on file and save as...a few options should be there? That's the only thing that I can tell you sice I don't have that device! :confused:

Cool, I managed to update the file myself using Access. :lol2:

Using the program 'Lotto Software' looks interesting.
Now if only I could get the database updated to the beginning. It may take a bit of time but may be worth it!

This program may give a good idea of what numbers to use for my Ldir program. :bounce:

I'll post the first numbers soon.

That's an excellent device since I'ved seen Lotwin .

But I've the same problem like u about the problem of updating data.

You can't add local lottery u want , u can't update new data .
Even feedback a email to them , they email ur original letter with no answer ! just like some people's experience.

I really can't understand why they don't update & can't add local lottery?!

That's really a good devie for lottery filtering , is it because free
download so no any support?

Can anyone teach me how to add my local lottery into it's dbase
[Acces]? I never use lotter programe in Acces , Excel & dos
version is a common type . It can't convert older Access , why & how?

Tks.

Perhaps

Perhaps if I looked at the SW and the DB, I could write an XLS spreadsheet with a small VBA interface that would allow you to input your data into the spreadsheet, then post it to the DB.

Most microsoft objects are creatable from VB script, like this....

Dim objExcel as object
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
objExcel.Workbooks.Open(sXLSFile)

I'm not totally sure about the ins/outs of the access object from a VBA standpoint. But with my VB skills, it won't take long to interface with a DB from outside of Access... Besides, I do know alot about SQL language and Access DBs from the VB side!



Oh, looking at the VBA interface in Excel, you can add a reference to Microsoft DAO objects (Data Access Object.) With those, you can gain access to the Database you are dealing with. From there, it isn't hard at all to add records, etc. It's like having MS-Access on your computer, just without the interface.
