Is there a program we can use or download that will produce a Grid from a given Code?

Could you explain what you mean in a little more detail?

Are you wanting something that will print/display a puzzle using a standard 81-character puzzle code? If so, most of the current major Sudoku software will do that. Enjoy Sudoku (from our host), Richard Broughton's Sudoku Solver, and Sadman Sudoku will all do that.

You already asked that. What exactly are you wanting? What kind of grid? What kind of code? Did the information I posted not answer your question?

Sorry guys, I did not realise that I was posting in the wrong place so I did not see your replies.
Basically, I find it somewhat tedious to hand-enter a code into a grid so I can do a puzzle of my choosing. I was looking for a program that would produce grids that could be printed off and played with a pen later - away from a computer. I liked the one that looks like a plain wooden board - no R2, C3 etc. The fact is I'd most like something that could convert the codes of games I select to look like the puzzles published in newspapers or magazines: plain text in a decent sized font, black and white. But we can't have everything! I'll take what I can get.

The Draw/Play feature at Daily Sudoku has a decent print function.

The three programs I mentioned above will do what you are asking. I see that you're already familiar with Richard Broughton's program. You can cut and paste a puzzle code into it and print it out for paper solving, with or without pencil marks (your option).

My program Jet Sudoku can import puzzles in many different formats including 81 character strings. It can then print them out if various sizes, full page if you like. Just paste it to the main screen with Ctrl+V. You can also import from text files.
It saves the imported puzzle to a database and checks its validity and difficulty.

You're welcome to try it (and its free) at http://www.manifestmaster.com/jetsudoku/

Hope this helps
