Challenge 75 is done! I thought i'd go all out and create an app to enter your values (including blanks!) to return the top N words to play.

I've looked at only a few solutions, but I think what I have here is a bit unusual. I had to redo lettervalues.txt too; I couldn't get anything to read it at all.

Solved! That was pretty hard to finish! I used my solution for the first one as a batch macro for the 2nd and 3rd answers

Became a bit of an exercise in macros!
Challenge 75 2020-07-31.jpg

Used an iterative macro to generate all the possible combinations of letters and their corresponding point values:

I then used this iterative macro inside batch macros to replace the blank/s with the letters A-Z
