AmuletOfNight reread my last post as I editted it we don't to see your algorithm, just the definition of the symbols.

OK, so there is 9 numbers in the beginning so it's 9^9, and as for the alphabet, how would you calculate this?

810? That's lame... Let me just post the algorithm...

The algorythm won't change the principals of 7th grade math.
You asked about the number of combinations for the format: #########-XX##
If you use 0-9 and consider upper and lower the same then you have

10^9 = 1000000000
26^2 = 676
10^2 = 100
add it all together and you get: 1000000776
Not 810

If you can't do 7th grade math, then you should get someone else to work on this part of the project for you.

ok how many letters are out there ? 26 assuming (again) only capital letters. and you have 2 so it is 26^2 the algorithm is correct:
9^9 + 26^2 + 9^2 = ??? and it is not 810.

then do the math
9^9 + 26^2 + 9^2

If you are only using 1 - 9, it should be: 9^9 * 26^2 * 9^2 or to simplify it: 9^11 * 26^2 which is 21,213,596,295,684 according to my slide rule.

Excuse ME. I'll take that as an insult.

Times, not plus...
10^9 * (not plus) 26^2 * (not plus) 10^2

Absolutely right. My mistake. My head just wasn't in it: Too busy working a different project at the same time.
