I need all possible lock combinations for a 3 number lock. My nephew got me to show him how to change the combination on his playstation case, and now he forgot the new combo. Grrr.... So now we'll have to do it by hand.
Chase! How are you?
How many numbers does the dial have?
I should have known *wink*
0-9, three dials.
Haha, I love numbers, what can I say...
If each dial has 10 numbers and there are 3 dials, then there will be 10^3 combinations (1000 combinations).
The easiest way to go through the combinations, ensuring that you won't miss one, is like this:
Let me know if that makes sense, or if you were looking for something else.

I know what you mean, but I HATE numbers. What I need is the actual list so that I can run thru the numbers or have him run thru them without thinking about what the next number is. I tried to find a list, but I'm so aggravated right now, I'm ready to strangle him. lol

i'm so bad with numbers that I couldn't see until you sent me the excel that it was simply like counting from 1 to 999. duh. Anyway, thank goodness the number was 088, and my thumb is raw from pushing the lever, lol, but at least it wasn't 988.
Thanks so much Scott,
Thanks for the bonus! You're quite lucky that it was 088!
