Hi there
I need help with a tricky problem.
I have a 2 dimensional array with qualities such as
ball size, ball color, ball weight.
Now I have to print out all the possible combinations of this.
assume I have it stored as such
i have two dimensional array ball:
ball (x,y)
x = the number of possible things a ball can be, like color, size ,weight,
bounce height, smootheness for example.
y = is that feature like red,green, blue  3 inches, 2 inches  3 lbs, 1
lbs  3 feet hi, 1 foot hi, 5 ft hi  smooth, rough, bumpy
now, how can I loop thru this array and pring all the combinations:
like bal(0,0) + bal(1,0) + ball(2,0) + ball(3,0)+ball(4,0)= red+2inches+3
lbs+3 feet hi+smooth
ball(0,0)+ball(1,0)+ball(2,0)+ball(3,0)+ball(4,1) = red+2inches+3lbs+3feet
hig+rough
etc
thanks in advance

Do you want to do a numeric or a text field addition?? Your question is
unclear to me but I think I can give the answer if you spell out what you
want to achieve a bit more.
Do you want a string or a code or a number or what?

Thanks for your response.
I would like the actual strings to show what the combinations are.
Assume the actual strings are already in the multidimensional array as show
in my post.
I just dont know how to loop through the array to build this string.
since you can really only access one element of the array at a time with the
loop
Would be great if you could help
Thanks

Try something like:
dim x as integer
dim y as integer
for x=0 to ubound(ball(1))
for y = 0 to ubound(ball(2))
debug.print "ball(" & x & "," & y & ")=" & ball(x,y)
next y
next x

This just prints each feature out, I need to print out all possbile
combinations.
like:
red+2inches+3lbs+3 feet hi+smooth
not just
red
2inches
3 lbs
3 feet hi
smooth
This is tricky

Now I'm confused. It appears you want all permutations, but that
wouldn't make sense if the data is stored in a 2dimensional array.
