I am trying to solve a problem that I think Excel should be able to help me

with, if only I knew how!

The problem is this. I am organising an event and expecting around 40-50

people, each person should visit each of the 6 stands with a group of other

guests. After visiting the first stall, each person should then move onto

another stall; however they should not meet anyone at the second stall that

they were with previously at the first. This should then continue until

every one has visited all 6 stalls and not met with anyone they have been

with at a stall before. I expect there to be approx 10 people at any one

stall at a time e.g. 60 people attend / 6 stalls = 10 at a stall.

I first thought this would be a simple problem, start a table in Excel and

find a pattern then copy the pattern down, but the more I try the more

frustrated I get. Any suggestions welcome.
