hi delrahim69,

please post the text version of the puzzle
(e.g. dot for empty cell, space between cells)
    some obvious cells which you missed --
    • the 2 for row 16
    • the 10 for column 7
    • the 11 for row 4 or box 3
    • the 14 for row 12 or column 12 or box 11
    • the 15 for row 14 or column 4 or box 13
    • r2c7 = 1 ("naked single")
what was the difficulty-rating of the puzzle?
    should we expect to need a trio?

      (yes i did see a trio, in box 9, {3,4,6}
      -- but haven't followed it to anything useful)

I entered it into a solver.
This is the text "export" of what I put in.


Code:
6..4B.....CA....
...D.C3..9.G4.B5
..B..E.9.....G..
..F..A.4E6.8...1
..5A....7..1..6D
F..6.7.AB.......
...1.2...E..A..C
......D.3A....78
59.7..8E.4......
D.E2..7...1.F...
....4..2F.3.6..E
AF..D..G....73..
7...3..C2.F..8.B
..2.....9.E..D..
BG.9A.F..D4.2...
....E6.....BC..F


The solver could not crack it. ( Isanaki 2.6 )

It does say that there are more than 50 solutions for it.
