Dim crlf\$

Form1.Visible = True

Text1.Text = ""
crlf = Chr\$(13) + Chr\$(10)

For tot = 2 To 99999
For a = 1 To tot / 2
DoEvents
b = tot - a
lhs = a * a * a + b * b * b
c = Int((lhs / 31) ^ (1 / 3) + 0.5)
If c * c * c * 31 = lhs Then
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & a & Str(b) & Str(c) & "    " & lhs & Str(a + b + c) & crlf
End If
Next
Next

Text1.Text = Text1.Text & crlf & " done"

End Sub

finds no solution for a+b under 100,000, even without c.
