I got the message about being logged in.

"you have not logged into your account for the past 30 days on this computer."

going by this part of it i say when you are logged in they use a cookie to flag your system.

Maybe i will open an account, if you get a chance could you copy an example of a form page and post it in an excel do so i can see what they offer in the way of details, thanks.

Here you go Shaun,

What you will notice is how it seems to include some bizarre 'A' characters....the only thing I did different was clicked on a horse when in Firefox on a Mac....when I switched over to the PC to do it (VM on my Mac), it would do it again and returned the same message.....So I opened the Tatts racing screen whilst within the Web Query window and logged in then and then it worked...seems to need your credentials whilst within the Web Query window if that makes any sense.

Default Subcriptiondata.com

Has anyone tried Subcriptiondata.com to get the data feed? The cost is quite high over time so that puts me off.

Ta,
Martin

I expect there will be plenty soon enough as this seems to be all about squeezing a few more $$ out of punters.

$65 a month for an odds feed?? not in this lifetime

Not sure if this accurate, but subshcriptiondata services have the sole national distribution rights in some form or another. In otherwords, the numbers ya see on screen at pub, clubs and TAB's , the source of that info, i was told is subscriptiondata.
Where they get the "raw" data from, (wholesale) is probably not available to the general public.
What would be awesome is to have their "engine" and their demo software export to excel as part of the package. But no, they insist to employ the services of I.T. people ?

@ $65.00 pm, and ya new at it, then what's 10 months of trial n error in developing the shift from web scraping to guaranteed data, and possibly much more?
Cos you only need to make that connection between the subscription data engine and Eexcel once.
