Thanks. This hadn't been uploaded to mathsource at the time of my original
post. Also I hadn't made the connection between Paul Abbotts "in flight
puzzle" and sudoku.

There seems to be a few Mathematica solvers out there but no sudoku makers(???).
The offer of a free MiER subscription still stands for an article describing
both a sudoku maker and a sudoku solver.

Cheers

Mike
