    How to easily separate won bets from lost bets


    I'm working on taxes in the US, which requires that I separately sum won bets (per book) and lost bets (per book), so that I can input both figures on the tax forms. As far as I can tell the (completely amazingly great) tracker sheet just automatically nets out wins and losses.

    Could anyone help me figure out the least-invasive way to filter won bets and lost bets? Ideally, I'd love to do so in a way that maintains the other breakdowns the tracker already does -- most importantly, breaking down by book, since that's what I need. So ultimately what I what is a filter for won bets (broken out by book) and lost bets (broken out by book).

    I'm sure I could do manual filtering in the sheet and then re-sum, but I'm wondering if there's some way to do this that leverages the per-book breakdown that the sheet already has.

    Many thanks.

    Hi GoingTo11,

    Hopefully this will suit your needs:

    Create a new sheet in the workbook and create a three-column table. The headers would be A1: Book | B1: Won Bets | C1: Lost Bets.

    The first column would simply list your books. The easiest way would be to reference them from the Settings sheet.

    If you have Book #1 in cell A2 then in the second column the formula would be:

    and in the third column the formula would be:

    The above assumes you haven't been placing Asian Handicap bets. An alternative is:

    You would then copy this formula down for the rest of your books.
