    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">It's a simple alphabetic shift code. The heights of the chart columns are 16, 19, 18 etc., corresponding to P S R etc. I tried various shifts to see if readable code emerged. Shifting 4 letters back yielded the answer (P > L, S > O, R > N etc.)</span hide>

    Hi Rudi

    This came up in a moment of inspiration. There have been a lot of similar code puzzles being posted in the Lounge recently so I thought this would be another way to disguise the code and present it in another way to hopefully confuse initially. Hans picked up on it immediately by looking at the values in the graph and then realised correctly that it was a simple shift code.

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17>I posted this first as a hook for the second puzzle, which was a similar shift code puzzle but with a twist

    Re: Where am I?

    Well your puzzle has inspired me to see if I can come up with a "LOGIC" puzzle using Excel too! It seems to be fun! Even more so if the puzzle post can teach others a trick or two about Excel!!! (Isn't that what the lounge is for, eh!)

    Stay tuned!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
