Solving Sudoku with Excel

Amber MacArthur, Bill Jelen, Leo LaPorte, Andy Walker on the set of Call for Help on TechTV Canada.

The tip in this show is from Learn Excel from MrExcel.

Sudoku is the hot new puzzle craze appearing in many daily newspapers. The goal is to arrange numbers in the grid that each digit from 1 to 9 appears exactly once in each row, column, and 3x3 subgrid.

I showed a variety of Sudoku tools on the show. They are available at this page. For the BEST TV show on technology, check out Call for Help.
