These clues don't form a valid puzzle.

Hi Yoshi - I dubbed your grid into the Sudoku program downloaded from this site but I couldn't work on it as it came up as an invalid puzzle.

I think it's a valid puzzle - as it has at least one valid solution - but it needs T&E to get there.

Thank you Simes. Perhaps I should have said that the given grid doesn't form a valid Pappocom puzzle.
