You can keep your space formatting intact by using the CODE tags when posting (or editing). So this is what you want...
Take this one row at a time. Suppose row = 1, and column goes from 6 to 1. For column values 6 through 2, we want a space. But for column = 1, we want the number 1. The trick is expressing this (the pattern of 5 spaces followed by the number "1") in terms of row and column values.
Next, suppose row = 2, and column again goes from 6 to 1. For column values 6 through 3, we want a space. But for column values 2 and 1, we want the numbers 2 and 1 respectively.
Do you see a pattern? [ October 13, 2005: Message edited by: marc weber ]
