What I hear you say is that you have two 8 position fields that can contain any value. Does that include NULL X’00′ through X’FF’?
Or just A though Z plus 0 thorugh 9 plus blank?
If it is the 2nd option is what youmean, you could have up to 37*37*37*37*37*37*37*37 or 3,512,479,453,921 posibilities.
If it is the 1st option, then you possibilities would be 256 to the 8th power.
And now you want to list and count all the possibilities between the beginning string and the ending string.
Is this correct?
