```Hi,

assuming your variables named a,a, a ..
than define

SetAttributes[b, Orderless]
MakeConstrains[n_Integer] := With[{vNo = n},
Block[{var, constrain},
var = Table[a[i], {i, 1, vNo}];
constrain = Union[Flatten[Outer[b[#1, #2] &, var, var]] /. b[v1_,
v1_] :> Sequence[]] /. b -> NotEqual;
constrain = Join[constrain, 0 <= # <= vNo & /@ var];
And @@ constrain
]
]

and

MakeConstrains

will construct the conditions for 120000
variables.

Regards
Jens
