That's 7 x 53, another prime number. How did you work that out? If we knew your method it would help to understand what you want. Also how did you get 3,003 in your other email?

The idea is to be able to catch a lot with 5 defectives if that lot contains 5 defectives. I know combination wise, this should give 579 combinations.Is there any way this can be handled in MSAccess ?Thanks.Ade.
