I ma having a problem with the word scrape because the position 1 comes up twice.  This will make no sense without the attached file.  Look at the word and the logic of assigning points to word parts.  The issue is that the 'scr' part of the word is assigned two points because it comes up under two headings but the code sees this as an error.

Why don't you explain what you are doing and your precise problem rather than expecting us to figure it all out?

Dier02,

>The issue is that the 'scr' part of the word is assigned two points because it comes up under two headings but the code sees this as an error.

It doesn't show up as an error when I looked at it a minute ago. Can't see a problem with it. However I'm not at all sure why scr merits two lots of points instead of only one set of points.

Runrigger - what about the word discovery - it has three points - one for the 'dis' one for the 'y' and one for the correct spelling but it is only showing 2 marks?
Patrick - its because it comes up under two headings so a point for each - but I think the problem was that the 'scr' occupied the 1st position so it wouldn't give a mark for each position - only one?

In other words it saw the scr and 1 only once and saw the second entry as an error?

'trapped' should be four points and it is coming up three as well.  I can;t see why.

I think that is due to the position value in column U being 1, it should be 5, same with resident, value in U should be 4!
