I agree that 1010 is the correct answer to 1Dn. I was just saying that there could be two entries for that clue. However, when you use 1010 it rules out the other answer because the total of all the entries is incorrect. Does anyone have the highlighting?

mr mournful's point is that there are not two possible answers to the 1D clue, because the clue tells you the answer has 3 digits. As to the highlighting, you have to understand the implication of the relevant sentence in the preamble.

Thanks gem - point taken. I now have the highlighting which was staring me in the face the whole time!

Hello guys,
I have the grid full and I've done the modifications/got the totals in the right places, but I'm utterly stumped by the last highlighting - I fear I'm being a little silly and that it's staring me in the face, but I can see only 3 extra of the digits in the total though I need 6? Can anyone offer a hint in the right direction? Much obliged!

cookiemonster, it depends what you mean by 'extra'. If you re-read the relevant paragraph of the preamble slowly, you'll realise how you're over-restricting yourself.

Cookiemonster you've done the same as me! If you ignore the digits in the row and column that are significant, you are left with SIX not three digits that match the row and column. Highlighting these should give the shape of something familiar?

Ah, thank you chaps! I really must stop overcomplicating things needlessly. Many thanks!

I have the 6 extra digits, I recognise it - but how it relates to 'what Cleopatra would do when needled by a clue' escapes me.
