hello,
im using the code bellow to generate 8 million unique numbers but I need to add a feature where the first three digits are NXX and and XX cannot both be 1, by doing this the list should be 80,000 less

                For x As Integer = 2000000 To 9999999
                    If x.ToString Like "[2-9]*" Then
                        objWriter.WriteLine(x.ToString("D7"))
                    End If
                Next
