What is Sudoku?

Sudoku is a number-based logic puzzle played on a 9x9 grid.

The objective is to fill each row, column, and 3x3 sub-grid with the numbers 1 to 9, without repeating any number in the same row, column, or sub-grid.

The puzzle starts with some numbers already filled in and the player must use logic to fill in the remaining squares.

    Sudoku is not "number-based". Any 9 different symbols could be used.
    The digits 1 through 9 are used for only convenience and familiarity.

    With the new capabilities of Lambda Functions, Dynamic Spill Arrays, and Recursion, Excel can actually solve ANY sudoku puzzle using only Formulas! (No macros/VBA). If you have the Add-On "Advanced Formula Environment" installed, you can add my Lambda Function to a module very easily using my GitHub Gist url: https://gist.github.com/CalfordMath/9c83740d044dbd9cca91102e4017a47a
