It is basically. I'll see if I can figure out how to move it into a function (as the other posters did) that I can call from different places, and at some point I need to get it closer to the below (much more complex, it seems) example.


A real world algorithm from the Chicago Manual of Style, in English:

FIRST NUMBER		SECOND NUMBER		EXAMPLES
1-99				use all digits			3-10, 71-72, 96-117
100 or multiples		use all digits			100-104,
of 100								1100-1113

101-109			use changed part	 only		101-8,
201-209, etc.							1103-4				
110 through 199		use two or more digits		321-28,
210-299, etc.		as needed				498-532,
									1087-89
		
				But, if three digits change	1496-1504
				in a four-digit number,	2787-2816
				use all four


Ugh ... what a PITA!


I don't expect anyone to actually figure this out for me suffice to say!
