in reply to Multiple Permutation handling

Thanks for the help guys, I really appreciate it. Anyone want a take on a curveball? What if some SKUs just have one set of options (like size only), but the next SKU has 3 sets (size, color, type), and the next one has 2 (size and color)? Can the code be make to "permutate" only over the available sets for each SKU?
