Amelia: Eisenhower, Eisenhower, Kennedy.
Barry: Kennedy, Kennedy, Eisenhower.
Carol: Truman, Truman, Eisenhower.

Dim g(6) As String
a\$ = Space\$(3)
g(1) = "EEK"
g(2) = "KKE"
g(3) = "TTE"
g(4) = "KET"
g(5) = "TKK"
g(6) = "KTT"
For p1 = 1 To 3
Mid(a\$, 1, 1) = Mid("TEK", p1, 1)
For p2 = 1 To 3
Mid(a\$, 2, 1) = Mid("TEK", p2, 1)
For p3 = 1 To 3
Mid(a\$, 3, 1) = Mid("TEK", p3, 1)
good = 1
For person = 1 To 6
found = 0
For i = 1 To 3
If Mid(a\$, i, 1) = Mid(g(person), i, 1) Then
found = 1: Exit For
End If
Next
If found = 0 Then good = 0: Exit For
Next person
If good Then Text1.Text = Text1.Text & Chr\$(13) & Chr\$(10) & a\$
Next
Next
Next
End Sub

does find KTK: Kennedy, Truman, Kennedy.
