Sudoku & Other Puzzles

“When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”

Arthur Conan Doyle, The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes

My method for solving Sudoku puzzles as described by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Just for my own amusement I wrote an excel program to help me solve Sudoku and other word puzzles. Click to download a copy. NB double clicking in the green 'link' boxes opens a web page with a puzzle to solve on.

How To Use ~ Simply take away the numbers which cannot be in a box. Clicking the 'Solve It!' button will remove the numbers from the other boxes depending on which Option is selected. Eventually you are left with a sole number in each box.
