Loop, Compare, Match & Total

S.H.A.D.O.

Hi everyone,

I will give this request one last try and put it as simply as I can without all the confusing and complicated jargon.
I have the following wheel of 6 number combinations in Cells "B3:G12" in a sheet named "Data".

01 02 03 04 05 06
01 07 08 09 10 11
01 12 13 14 15 16
02 03 07 08 12 13
02 03 09 10 14 15
04 05 07 08 14 15
04 05 09 10 12 13
02 03 04 05 11 16
06 07 08 09 10 16
06 11 12 13 14 15

I want to iterate through ( see the code below ) ALL the 5 number combinations produced from "n" ( "n" = the highest number used in ANY of the 6 number combinations which is 16, so C(16,5) = 4,368 combinations ) and compare each 5 number combination with each 6 number combination in the wheel above.

If at "LEAST" 2 numbers match then add 1 to the 2 if 5 category total ( total to go in Cell "D12" in the sheet named " Statistics" ).
If at "LEAST" 3 numbers match then add 1 to the 3 if 5 category total ( total to go in Cell "D16" in the sheet named "Statistics" ).
If at "LEAST" 4 numbers match then add 1 to the 4 if 5 category total ( total to go in Cell "D19" in the sheet named "Statistics" ).
If ALL 5 numbers match then add 1 to the 5 if 5 category total ( total to go in Cell "D21" in the sheet named "Statistics" ).

If ANY of the 5 number combinations does NOT match ANY of the 6 number combinations with the required scenario of ? if 5, then that 5 number combination is NOT covered for that particular scenario of ? if 5 and therefore 1 ( one ) cannot be added to the respective ? if 5 category total.

That is it in a nutshell really.

I have written the following code which might be of use :-

Code:
``````Option Explicit
Option Base 1

Sub Produce_5_Number_Combinations()

Dim A As Integer
Dim B As Integer
Dim C As Integer
Dim D As Integer
Dim E As Integer
Dim MinVal As Integer
Dim MaxVal As Integer

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

MinVal = 1
MaxVal = Whatever the highest number In the sheet named "Data" And In the Range "B3:G?" is.

For A = 1 To MaxVal - 4
For B = A + 1 To MaxVal - 3
For C = B + 1 To MaxVal - 2
For D = C + 1 To MaxVal - 1
For E = D + 1 To MaxVal

*** Code goes here maybe ***

Next E
Next D
Next C
Next B
Next A

*** Output totals For Each category ***

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub``````
