Excel spreadsheet of Lotto results  formula question
I'm trying to query a spreadsheet of 100 Lotto draws.
I want to reorder all rows of 6 numbers from drawn order to lowhigh numeric order. Here are a few typical ball sequences in the order the balls emerged: a) 40102522416 b) 34177393130 c) 2434025711 Instead, I'd like the sequences to look like this: a) 41016222540 b) 71730313439 c) 3711242540 Is this possible? Thanks.

Hi teckneeculler,
I'm trying to query a spreadsheet of 100 Lotto draws.
I want to reorder all rows of 6 numbers from drawn order to lowhigh numeric order. Here are a few typical ball sequences in the order the balls emerged: a) 40102522416 b) 34177393130 c) 2434025711 Instead, I'd like the sequences to look like this: a) 41016222540 b) 71730313439 c) 3711242540 Is this possible? It depends on how complex you want to make this! The easiest solution is to perform TextToColums to get rid of the "" and have each number in its own cell. Lets assume that your Lotto numbers are in cells A1:F?, put these formulas in cells H1:M1 and copy down . . . Code:
=IF($A1=0,"",SMALL($A1:$F1,1)) =IF($A1=0,"",SMALL($A1:$F1,2)) =IF($A1=0,"",SMALL($A1:$F1,3)) =IF($A1=0,"",SMALL($A1:$F1,4)) =IF($A1=0,"",SMALL($A1:$F1,5)) =IF($A1=0,"",SMALL($A1:$F1,6))

Hi teckneeculler,
If you wanted the "" between the numbers, you could put this formula in cell O1 and copy down . . . Code:
=IF($A1=0,"",SMALL($A1:$F1,1)&""&SMALL($A1:$F1,2)&""&SMALL($A1:$F1,3)&""&SMALL($A1:$F1,4)&""&SMALL($A1:$F1,5)&""&SMALL($A1:$F1,6))

Paul, thanks very much.
Re the dashes, there are none: the numbers are in cells, as in a regular spreadsheet. I've attached a section of the spreadsheet.

Hi teckneeculler,
In cells J2:O2 put numbers one to six in the respective cells. In cell J3 enter . . . Code:
=IF($C3=0,"",SMALL($C3:$H3,J$2)) I hope this helps!

Snick, thanks but I'm using Excel 2003. The GUI is quite different to later versions  much simpler, in fact, which I prefer.
