How do I get excel to all return all 1000 different combinations of 0-9 as a 3 number sets to appear in the A,B, C columns:
for example:
A1=0,B1=0,C1=0
A2=0,B2=0,C2=1
and so on,
0,0,2
0,0,3
0,0,4
0,0,5
0,0,6
0,0,7
0,0,8
0,0,9
0,1,1
0,1, 2

A column is 0-9, B column is 0-9 and C column is 0-9

you must be kidding in taking 1000 combinations of 0-9!
there are only 120 combinations for these and 720 Permutations.
try
=COMBIN(10,3)=120
and
=PERMUT(10,3)=720
:devilish:

Thanks.
Now how do I get excel to generate only accept the unique number combinations. 1-2-3 is the same as 3-2-1. The one that is generated first is accepted. The other is rejected. Using the 0-9 digits for cells E,F,G. It should be 220 combinations.

Great thanks fairwinds.
Now how do I take the list in H I J and relist them automatically in L M O cells without blank rows as in row 11.
So that the results are in consecutives rows.
