Hey Todd, it seems like the full wheels (pick 5 and pick 6) don't consider 0 a valid entry, even when you change the minimum from 1 to 0.  You can click quick picks a few times and it will throw a 0 in there, but when you hit 'Create Wheel' you get:

Error:  You did not fill all the input spaces with numbers.

..And it removes 0 from the box you entered it in.  Abreviated and Key wheels work fine with 0's for both pick 5 and pick 6 wheels.

FYI!

      Are there other games other than pick3 and pick4 that include zero in their number pools?  Ohio's  Lot'Play had 00-99 in its number pool.  It's wasn't that popular so it was discontinued after a year.

        Beats me, I haven't seen any. 

        I was just doing some research on different distribution patterns and I have been plugging some of the wheel formats into my application.  I grab the wheel ticket formatting like:

        0-1-2-3-4

        ..which basically stands for positions in the array not as actual numbers, so that's where the '0' helps me out Smile

          A short-term fix would be to use a "9" instead of the zero, and then paste the output into Notepad and do a Replace of all 9s with a 0.

            Yea I did a few of those, but when working with the bigger wheels it wasn't as efficient.  for a 5if5 of 15 I would use a higher number (16+), but then the tickets aren't ordered all pretty since the 0 is replaced at the end of the line. 

            (Maybe it's an OCD thing, ha)

            Not a hold up for me at all, just figured I'd give you a heads up!
