Thanks Frank I'll look into it on my next set of days off. I haven't really utilized imbedded macros, as of yet, as there definitely would be a learning curve and my wife is saying I'm spending too much time as it is working on this lotto puzzle. I've also been playing around with the match() function and the min() function which in a primitive sense give me the skips of a database. Your screenshots look very professional. My base software is lottostatisticsxls along with some other popular titles. I still find excel to be my go to as its very flexible and I can let my imagination just free flow with ideas. Talk to you later and happy lotto.
