The approach here was to think about all the combinations for 1 slice first - In other words - take the numbers which are at the 12 O'clock position in each ring, and call them slice 0; then go round the circle in clockwise order then you'll find slice 1, 2,3,4,5 - For slice zero - you create every combination of the inner 5 rings - Once you know slice zero - you can derive the other slices fairly easily
The trick is to figure out the combinations by generating numbers; converting using base 6 math a set of 6 digits (each from 0 to 5). This makes it much easier than generating 1 rotation for every ring.
Once you have this, you can then do a quick lookup to find the value written on the ring, and do a simple sum.
Looking forward to reading the solutions from other folk.
It was quite difficult, but I enjoyed it. I unfortunately used 5 slightly different macros one after the other to get it to find every possible combination, but I couldn't be bothered at that point to consolidate them. Then, as I'd used a recordID + grouping in each macro, I could find the one combination where everything was in the right order. Doesn't make too much sense, but hopefully the workflow does!
