Betfair lifetime results - how to make sense of them

I was contacted by the author of the excellent Mets Trading Diary blog asking about importing his lifetime Betfair P&L into his copy of Results Summary spreadsheet. Whilst Betfair offer up to 3 months of Betting Profit and Loss data download from "My Account" area on their website, if you require any more than that, then you need to contact the helpdesk at or by phone.  They will provide a report of the entire "lifetime" P&L of your account.  I received mine in about 4 hours - and my account has been active for 10 years!  It's probably a good idea to contact them in the morning though to get such a quick response.

New videos

Hi, just to let you know that I've posted a couple more videos for the Results Summary spreadsheet.  One is on the more advanced filtering and sorting you can do and the other shows the data export feature.

The Results Summary spreadsheet processes your P&L into meaningful summaries without any need for you to have any Excel programming knowledge.  So you can easily see where your trading & gambling is going right and, *cough*, needs improvement!

If you have any questions, please either leave a comment or email me (address on the profile page).

Check out the videos by clicking the "Videos" tab at the top of the blog or just click here. Cheers!
