    A Little golf help

    Every year we have a pretty big golf tournament in St George Utah. There are a lot of games going on during the 5 days of golf. One of which I am responsible for. We have a game where we track Birdies, Pars in a row, Par 3 total and Par 5 total. Each member that wants to enter in pays $10 for each pot. Of course we get all dominations. We are also given some seed money to add to the pot which comes in other denominations. So the spreadsheet we have has everyone's name down the left and there total winnings on the next column. The hardest part of this process is paying people out without not knowing what to put in each envelope until you get close to the end and notice you don't have enough small bills to distribute. So what I am looking for is a way to optimize the currencies so that it figures what to put into each envelop for each entry.

    Quite likely there is no solution to your problem aside from getting lots of low denomination seed money and of course using the large denominations wherever you can.

    If you have enough low denomination seed money you should be OK statistically speaking and you probably know from experience about what that amount would be.

    Re: A Little golf help

    Please take a moment to read the forum rules and then amend your thread title to something descriptive of your problem - not what you think the answer might be. (think google search terms?). Once you have done this please send me a PM and I will remove this request. (Also, include a link to your thread - copy from the address bar)

    Many members search our previous posts, and thread titles play a big part of the search. I doubt anybody would do a search based on your title?

    To change a Title on your post, click EDIT POST then Go Advanced and change your title, if 2 days have passed ask a moderator to do it for you.

    (note: this change is not optional )
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Regards
    Ford

    That is perfect. What is the code behind it.

    There is no code, and the formulas are as shown.

    Attached. There's a UDF that generates random amounts in col C, but you need not enable macros -- just enter your own amounts.
