Does anyone have any knowledge of a programme that will fill in details on UK lottery tickets?

To clarify, when filling out 100 or more tickets for a syndicate it is very laborious to enter the numbers AND to check and make sure that there are no mistakes.

Should be fairly easy to set up in Excel(assuming that the same numbers are used weekly).

No, the same numbers will not be used, the program would have to be able to cope with different numbers each time.

If using different numbers they would have to be entered into ANY programme weekly, so defeating the object.

One of our forum members has written the program you want, and will be more than happy to send you a copy. User name is tbh72, can't find the thread though. It was on here last year. j.

The object is not to store the numbers, but rather to automate the function i.e enter the numbers as required weekly but to have the certainty that the numbers entered will be put onto the tickets without erros.

Jack D - wants the program to print the black boxes on the tickets i think...

The National Lottery have a results checker click here
but I don`t fancy doing it 100 times a draw!

Why do the numbers have to change every week? I run a small syndicate for 12 people with the same numbers. I have it set up in excel to check the numbers and it tells me how many occurences of that number there are in our total of 72 - but picking them out still has to be manual.Any good to you.

Do you really write out 100 lines every week and go to the newsagent???!!!!!!

Thanks for that, will attempt to contact tbh72.

Jester is right, I want a proggie that fills in the black boxes, and yes I do fill them in manually and take them to the newsagent.
