Hi tony123;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.
If you can not overcome with talent...overcome with effort.

Hi;

Good to see you! You are right 125 is an extra solution that does not fit. The method I used came up with all the solutions not just the six digit ones.
I have added that fact to the original post. Appears I just made a silly mistake of being unable to count to 6 correctly.
