A colleague has asked for assistance with the problem stated below. I have searched and tried to create a solution without success. Another colleague suggested I post on this forum. The preferred approach would be in msAccess/vba, but any advice appreciated.

The problem:
Given a set of N participants, divide the participants into teams of m members. There are a number of Activities that take place in Sessions. Assign Teams to each session*activity such that no participant/member is assigned more than once in session, and no participant/member is in same activity more than once. Each team can only participate in 1 activity.

For testing suppose there a 4 activities that occur in 4 sessions, and 8 participants in teams of 2.Is there an algorithmic solution for 4x4 and 2. The underlying question is--is there a scalable solution beyond 4x4 and 2?


Manually, with 8 participants A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H - there is a solution
......... Activities
.........  1  2  3  4
Session 1 AE-CF-DG-BH
Session 2 CG-AH-BE-DF
Session 3 DH-BG-AF-CE
Session 4 BF-DE-CH-AG
