Hello, I am new to basic programming and wasn't sure which thread this should go in.
I have a little program which I need to write which essentially does the below:
I have a data set for example:
103848291
29381
3208019
392791145
They need to be formatted based on a predefined data range. So, for example:
PC0000029381
QQQ103848291
Based on whether the number falls between a certain range, I need it to be prefixed by either PC or QQQ and based on the range, I need to assign a certain number of zero's
So, for example
LOWER RANGE:
QQQ00192284
UPPER RANGE:
QQQ00039947
So based on the dataset (at the top of the tread) I need to say:
29381 falls between this range. So it should have
QQQ and three 0's in front of the number.
I have started trying to code this out; and have managed to use an if statement to clear out unwanted data, but really have no idea where to start on this part of the script.
It seems like I need to remove the first few letters from the ranges (e.g. QQQ and then compare the data?)
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

As added information. The data list is in an Excel file and could be updated frequently.
