    Searching database for most profitable outcome

    Hi

    Not sure im in the right place for this question but here it goes

    I have a betting spreadsheet database with 37 column headings, what can i do to search the data using only the following columns to return the most profitable scenarios

    Column 4 - League
    Column 7 - Home Odds
    Column 8 - Draw Odds
    Column 9 - Away Odds

    Column 18 - Home Back return - based on the odds from column 7 either a minus or plus return
    Column 19 - Draw Back return - based on the odds from column 8 either a minus or plus return
    Column 20 - Away back return - based on the odds from column 9 either a minus or plus return
    Column 21 - Home Lay return - based on the odds from column 7 either a minus or plus return
    Column 22 - Draw Lay return - based on the odds from column 8 either a minus or plus return
    Column 23 - Away Lay return - based on the odds from column 9 either a minus or plus return

    Column 29 - Home average
    Column 35 - Away Average

    Column 36 - Home colour ( dependent on average in column 29 )
    Column 37 - Away colour ( dependent on average in column 35 )

    Its a long shot i know, there are that many combinations it would take tens of days to do manually is there a quicker way??

    thanks

    Welcome to the forum!

    Will you please attach a sample Excel workbook? We are not able to work with or manipulate a picture of one and nobody wants to have to recreate your data from scratch.

    1. Make sure that your sample data are REPRESENTATIVE of your real data. The use of unrepresentative data is very frustrating and can lead to long delays in reaching a solution.

    2. Make sure that your desired results are also shown (mock up the results manually).

    3. Make sure that all confidential data is removed or replaced with dummy data first (e.g. names, addresses, E-mails, etc.).

    4. Try to avoid using merged cells as they cause lots of problems.

    Unfortunately the attachment icon doesn't work at the moment, so to attach an Excel file you have to do the following: just before posting, scroll down to Go Advanced and then scroll down to Manage Attachments. Now follow the instructions at the top of that screen.

    Please pay particular attention to point 2 (above): without an idea of your intended outcomes, it is often very difficult to offer appropriate advice.
