Benefits of analysing your P&L easily with Results Summary Spreadsheet

'Horse Racing' tab in the Results Summary Spreadsheet (v3)


Many thanks to all the current purchasers of the Results Summary spreadsheet!  It would be great to hear more from traders and gamblers who've used it to improve their profits.

For me, I was haemorrhaging money on flat races (in-play trading) which I wasn't aware of - a classic gambler's case of remembering the big wins and forgetting all the losers! Because I was only looking at the overall P&L things looked good.  I also had a major "leak" on maiden hurdles at certain courses (in-play trading). Both these problems were very easy to see once I developed this functionality in the spreadsheet - at the press of a button your horse racing P&L is split between flat and jumps, you can then see splits by racecourse, distance, race type, date and you can also filter all of these.  For example, you could see all the maiden hurdle races split by racecourse, or distance, sorted by profitability.  The flexibility is really great and enables you to see what's really going on.

Results Summary Spreadsheet v3 is here!

How to use your P&L analysis information

BUT! This spreadsheet isn’t just about keeping a record of your trading using tables and graphs. It’s been developed over several years to help with becoming a more profitable and consistent trader.  I wanted to find out how to have less risk, less stress, less wasted time and more profit.

Of course you need to adapt your trading according to what you find out and the spreadsheet does not give betting advice.  There’s a saying I really believe in which states, “If you keep doing what you've been doing you'll keep getting what you've been getting”.  Only about 5% of Betfair customers make a long-term profit and that’s mostly very small.  If you can take responsibility and own the fact that the results you see are because of the actions you’ve chosen to take, it means that you are in control.  Find what aspects of your trading are working and hammer them hard!  Reign back the stuff that’s increasing your losses.  Simple, eh?!, so how come most people aren’t doing it?  

How does it work?

Download your Betfair 'BettingPandL' file or Betdaq P&L file then simply click 'Import'.  Simples!

FREE conversion spreadsheet allows you to import your entire lifetime Betfair P&L results in one single import (i.e. more than 3 months worth of data).  This is to get around the 3-month limit Betfair has for the standard P&L download.  See this post for more info.

      Software requirements (not included!):
      Excel 2007 or newer for Windows. Tested on XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 (see note below about Windows 7 and 8) and Windows 10.  

      Works on Excel 365 for Windows.

      WILL NOT work on Excel 2003 and older, Open Office or Excel for Macintosh.

      International users may have to alter their Regional settings due to Betfair spelling out the dates in English text format within the BettingPandL file even for non English-speaking countries.

In Windows 7 & 8 go to Windows start button > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Formats (tab) - Current format and set to "English - United Kingdom".  See this post Using your Language and Currency format

      Windows 7 & 8: There is a security scan in Windows 7 & 8 which can prevent 3rd party Excel files such as the Betfair P&L file from being opened.  When trying to open the Betfair P&L file in excel you will get the error message,"Run-time error '1004': Method 'Open' of object 'Workbooks' failed".  Please download a Betfair P&L file and make sure you can open it before purchasing the 'Results Summary' spreadsheet.
