    That was an interesting challenge.
    My solution follows the same approach as Ken's but I did it in one single query.

    Haha! Whoops! I just replaced the file with one WITHOUT my queries, which was my original intention. Blew my own challenge here!

    I'll upload mine tomorrow.

    @fshaikh you can remove step 5, so there are 6 steps only

    IDGen - BdA.xlsxA more brute-force approach than compared to that of fshaikh, but a solution still.
