    Stefan, Am in great difficuly in gettig the bot name into the Bot executor for Selections. i think perhaps am not doing things in the right order, or have not constructed my Lay for 1.05 correctly.

    At one stage it was OK but i messed it up and havn't managed to get it right despite watching your video.It could be that my brain is ceasing to function due to my age!!

    If i want separate selections for several races...should this be done 1 race at a time, or can the process be applied on a group od races. I do not seem to be of much help on the forum so far...being preoccupied with my own difficulties.At this stage i am trying to place a bot to Lay 1.o5 on each section.

    Stefan. I take your point.The only video i had not viewed was the Product Features.I have been, I think taking a defeatist attitude.I hope to rectify that situation. I have to day been able to add horse racing (GB) to the My Favourite event and  load all the markets, identify my selections and insert them into thier respective races,thereby to dismiss the races with no selections. I put parameters into to the execute my selections bot  but was unable to actually place bets.will have another go at that.My Betfair activity using my other bots was showing up in bfexplorer.Will it possible sometime to utilise the horseform details from betfair into bfexplorer to enable a bot to load selections utilising the horse form figures.(it is possible to do it manually....but it is a bit of a pain) If I get the bet placement with  the staking plan sorted this will get me back on an even keel. There are ongoing improvements that I would like to include with this method to reduce what can turn out to be very high (for me) liability figures.

    Apologies for me being such a duffer.

    Stefan in reply to your comments.

    1)Yes i am able, and have downloaded scripts onto my computer.This is the first scripting sample i have seen so would not be able to go beyond copying and pasting.

    2)Have watched the videos a couple of times but am unable to take in the detail straight off so will need to revisit still more.

    3)No    4)No

    I do not support any spreadsheet reporting for bot solution...i have looked at betting from excel several times but have not used it to place bets nor do i envisge doing so.

    I am only interested in continuing my betting in the following way.

    open software.navigate to my bot. open bot, set or change parameters in interface,click to start, and let it do it's job.go through the card in time order,find my selection via sorting of the horses form figures,place the bets, after losing bets apply staking plan using methd similar to the one you have shown on your video. limit loss recovery to only 3 attempts then return to defoult. 

    At this time i cannot see a way for me to do this from, Bfexplorer.....but for me to even comtemplate doing this is not possible. Although i have been using computers since they were available. i have in the main only used Excel spreadsheets to put together detail to simulate betting methods. this i can do, but am not able to implement my details into a working bot.

    I have a spreadsheet based on 400 actual bets made earlier this year.showing my strategy

    I am contiuing to spend time with Bfexplorer to gain a better insight into it's working. It is a very sophisticated trading and betting interface,it will take some time as a lay person to assimulate and utilise it's many features.

    I did not make myself clear...Ihave a separate bot running on betfair with the intention that when a losing lay bet came along this bot would output the losing laybet details in to a spresdsheet from which i could trigger off a recovery bet.

    I haven't actually got the spreadsheet side working so was trying to find a way around getting some of my losses back.This is just a way i thought may be workable

    I have very little coding experiance and would find it almost impossible to set up Bfexplorer to do what i want to do in the way you describe

    21.7.2015 20:08:31 answer to your question.I have a bot laying my selections..but with no loss recovery built into the bot .From 400 races there were about 70 losing lay bets as a conseqeuence the losses eroded the lay winnings.Have put my 400 results into a spreadsheet and have seen a way to reduce my number of bets and most of the losses.

    Running the lay bot in simulation and posting the lay bot losing bets to the spread sheet and at that time then trigger off aa higher stakes lay bet.   Using this would reduce my overall bets to around 80 and obtain around  60 lay bet wins at first attempt and almost all of the remaining 12 or so bets at the second attempt.

    I know this is what is termed as back fitting and probably would not easily work. It used to be easy when i was using the earlier Bfexplorer bots . Perhaps it is time for me to have a go trading...but i havn't a clue where and in what markets i should use

    Hello Mir,

    My quest article has given me a reply in the way that i was hoping for.

    I havn't as yet got into trading on any way.....but it appears that you are a trader?

    How about posting a simple way for me to get started?

    I realise that my betting methods are way out of date. and am looking for some assistance
