Excellent piece of deduction work Gary. You can have [choccy bar] for your attempt.

Now that we know it is <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The Eiffel Tower</span hide> I am offering up 5 [choccy bars] to any Puzzle Lounger who can work out my thinking behind this. The first Where am I? will give you a clue on how the code basically works but there is a twist, so be warned <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">If the blue bar is -4, subtract its value from the red bar. The resulting number indicates the letler in the alphabet (1 = A, 2 = B, etc.)
If the blue bar is 3, ignore it and just look at the value of the red bar.</span hide>

Well done Hans

There was an even more subtle way.

<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">If the original letter was in an even position in the alphabet then I subtracted 4, if it was odd I added 3 and replotted the answers. The way Excel plotted confused the issue with the blue bars, hence your correct deduction of "do nothing"</span hide>

I have attached the workbook for Where am I? and Where am I? II to see the way I calculated it...enjoy

I think you are giving me some ideas here!!! <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
Wait till I start with some "puzzles" using Excel as a platform!!

This may start a WHOLE NEW puzzle trend!!! - All creditted to Jerry!!

You might want to take a look at Jezza's Gridlocked puzzles, too, which also use Excel...
