The desired values for

BOY GIRL POETRY are
265 1739 460835 respectively.

If B were allowed to be zero (leading zero), you'd have

083 9461 785263
085 9231 784635

 s$ = "0123456789": h$ = s
 Do
   boy = Val(Left(s, 3))
   girl = Val(Mid(s, 4, 4))
   poetry = 100000 * Val(Mid(s, 8, 1)) + 10000 * Val(Mid(s, 2, 1)) + 100 * Val(Mid(s, 9)) + 10 * Val(Mid(s, 6, 1)) + Val(Mid(s, 3, 1))
   If boy * girl = poetry Then
      Text1.Text = Text1.Text & boy & Str(girl) & Str(poetry) & crlf
   End If
   DoEvents
   permute s
 Loop Until s = h
