Hi, Forum members/readers ...

I'm the 80 year old man who was first [and about only] in contact with the forum in last October ...

As I said then, Several years ago had just learned about Sudoku and shortly started working on "my own" Excel solver ...

For some reason I had stopped, then just last year I started trying again ...

After joining the forum, I was led to several who tried being helpful to this "Old Newbie"l, but in truth they [politely] sort of discouraged me ...

The "non-Excel" techniques I was told about were "well above my pay grade" capabilities, though I tried leaning them ...

I was told by several in the forum that an Excel solution was not too mathematically challenging Sad ...

However, one member was willing to work with me, though his solvers were very technical; his patience helped me enhance my solver -- and my pleasure! ...

Now I've combined my "improved" and VERY GRAPHICAL [AND COLORFUL] Excel model with the techniques I have learned from him ...

It's been great and fun, and NOW I think others might be interested in trying it; I really would appreciate any [constructive] critiques and comments ...

Hopefully, I'll be able to attach the Excel file, and I'm looking forward in advance to thank any/all of you for replying ...

Sincerely,

Manny [mannyoh]

Last year (2014!) Manny shared that he has had some success in creating
a colourful Excel solver and was hopeful to be able to attach it to his post.

It would appear that he was UN-successful in the latter respect but it
is sad that he received exactly ZERO replies.

Initiatives like his deserve encouragement.
Is there a way that we can "road-test" his creation?
