Default Aristotle's Number Puzzle

I got this from my daughter for my birthday. Never mind that the one I received came in the solved state. I want to be able to figure it out on my own.

I found this site which describes how he went about setting it up. I, too, was able to determine the 7 independent variables.

Now, I need help in figuring out how to systematically pick 7 unique values from the integers 1-19.


I'm trying to do this in Excel...which I imagine is the wrong approach...VBA would probably be better. Mr. Wiechers, from above, did it in C. I can't read that code for the life of me.

Your input is/ideas are needed.
