I have a set of six numbers, each in their own individual cell

I have to select all possible combinations of three numbers from this original set of six as shown in the file I have attached.

In worksheet, I have used a simple method of selecting.

Can someone show me how to do this same procedure with a macro ?

(I have millions of sets to work through)

thankyou very much

1st off you duplicated "cde" twice, resulting in 21 groups instead of 20...

6C3 is 6x5x4/(6) = 20

At this point there is no need for a macro!
All you need do is fill in values in a new row for a-f and then copy the "formulas" in the remainder of the row down!
