I would like to have a formula that would list all of the combinations of the following: HH, HP, ML, LP, OFF, IHT, IMBM. For example, the first would be "HH HH", the second "HH HP", the third "HH ML",etc. as well as, for example "ML HH", OFF HH","IHT IHT", etc. In essence, there would be 49 (I think that is correct) different combinations...any ideas?

Assuming your list of combination members is in the A column the following will display all possible combination in the B column.
Code:Sub combos() Dim i As Integer, j As Integer, iRow As Integer iRow = 1 For i = 1 To 7 For j = 1 To 7 Cells(iRow, 2) = Cells(i, 1) & " " & Cells(j, 1) iRow = iRow + 1 Next j Next i End Sub

For a non macro solution:
With the list starting in cell A2 and the formula result starting in row 1 (any column)
Code:= OFFSET($A$2,(INT(ROW()1)/7),0) & "  " & OFFSET($A$1,MOD(ROW()+6,7)+1,0)

Try this one:
Code:=OFFSET($A$1,(INT(ROW()1)/7),0) & "  " &OFFSET($A$1,ROW()7*(INT((ROW()1)/7))1,0)

The following macro solution assumes that column A contains only the list of strings to be used, starting in A1. In other words, all cells below the list are blank.
Code:Sub Combos() Dim i As Long Dim j As Long Dim r As Long Dim m As Long ' Last filled row in column A m = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row r = 1 For i = 1 To m For j = 1 To m Cells(r, 2) = Cells(i, 1) & " " & Cells(j, 1) r = r + 1 Next j Next i End Sub

And here is a formula solution based on the same assumption. The formula should be entered in a cell in row 1 and filled down.
=OFFSET($A$1,(INT(ROW()1)/COUNTA(A:A)),0) & "  " &OFFSET($A$1,ROW()COUNTA(A:A)*(INT((ROW()1)/COUNTA(A:A)))1,0)

Use the formula I supplied in this post.
=OFFSET($A$1,(INT(ROW()1)/7),0) & "  " &OFFSET($A$1,ROW()7*(INT((ROW()1)/7))1,0)
