# how to get nice reports easily from poker tracker 4?

my students and i are using pt4 at a couple of online casinos.

we would like to have reports that we can easily convert to html so we can all see how we are doing.

but the only way to get reports out of pt4 involves clicking and saving a bunch of things like .csv files or .png files, so it's sorta painful.

they do not expose any api, so i am stuck unless someone knows how to grep around the their database.

any pointers will be appreciated.

thanks

edit in response to Notorious Pet0: all of the .csv data that i want is probably already in some pt4 report that i can export. the problem is more like taking a few of these, removing a few rows and columns and and stuffing them in some html page automagically every month so one could see some progress. otherwise it's very time consuming.

• as *Notorious Pet0 pointed out, Pokertracker stores all information in a postgreSQL database, in my system this is stored in C:/postgreSQL/*. You don't need an API to work with this, merely PHP and their pg_x family of functions to query directly the relevant information and produce HTML. Furthermore, you could use pgAdmin to break down the data PT4 is working on. Although i sense this is harder than it looks since if reports don't give away the queries used for this, that means you should find them. If i ever had to do such thing, that would be my approach. – user1165 Jun 30 '15 at 12:13
