Dunno what they are - I just used some techniques that I use to solve Sudoku puzzle myself.  If you want, I can send you the VB6 source (I'm a messy coder).
I did use a 3x3x3x3 array though - first time I've ever used a 4 (and also 5) dimensional array :D  Not that it really helped or anything - it was just for fun I guess.

took me three tries before it would have looped forever (and you even
warned me about that in the app).
O_o, oh, like not entering enough data?  Haha, I see.  Basically it tries to solve it logically, after failing it will try "basic" guessing (brute force but to a limited depth) then finally asks the user if it will do a full brute force.

Thanks for the comments _VEndeTta!  You seem to be a very experienced programmer - do you tend to program many little apps?
