I have an Excel file which contains a number of parameters (5) about certain events. This file grows each day. At the moment there are about 2000 events, each containing their 5 parameters.
Each parameter is one of either 4.5 or 6 discreet values. For each new event I would like an add-in that will interrogate the xls file and give the probability that the event belongs to one particular value group of one of the parameters.
For example lets say the event parameters are based around a horse race and we have 5 parameters that are historically collected from previous races viz P1, P2, P3, P4 and P5
Lets say that each of these parameters can be one of 4,5 or 6 discrete values (each parameter differs) and let us say that P5, which is the outcome of the event can be one of 4 values, say, 1,2,3,4. I would like an add-in that when inputting values of P1-4 it will give a probability that the event is more likely to be part of group 1,2,3 or 4 for P5.
Naturally the add-in would have to use fairly robust satistical analysis but I wouldn't have thought it too complex or beyond the capability of Excel.
Obviously I haven't explained myself particularly well, and that is your first challenge - to understand what I'm aiming at !!
Seriously though, I don't think it should be that difficult.
