@Chrismultiair9810 You can do this without making it too complicated. It seems that the first two elements are variable (AA and 01). After that you have groups A through E with serial numbers 01 to 10. That makes 50 location codes in total. Not sure why you came to 100.

 

The attached workbook creates these 50 codes based on the structure described above. I used both TEXTJOIN and CONCAT. See which one works best for you.

 

Change the variables in the highlighted cells to generate 50 codes more. Copy/Paste Values for all options and to create your 300 (or 600) location codes. Will take max two minutes.

Hi @Chrismultiair9810 

 

Don't understand how you get 100 combinations/rack, I get 50. So attachment is probably not what your looking for...

 

Done with Power Query:

- Put the "root" of the rack in the blue table

- Right-click in the green table > Refresh

 

If not good please explain you get 100 combinations/rack

@L z. 

Thank you very much. It was indeed fixed in 2 minutes.

It was indeed only 50 lines, the 100 lines were my fault, I had put 2 columns under each other. I was in a hurry...

 

Again, many thanks.

A big thank you, for the tips and tricks.
Really appreciated.
Kind Regards,
