Actually I would only need to find one combination and
then update those records.  There wouldn't be any need
to find all combinations.  That may make things easier
but not by much.  I think the technique suggested by
Joshua may be good enough for what I want to do so I'll
try that.  Also I could limit the quantity amounts to
something like 10, 50, and 100 to make things go a
little smoother.  

Thanks all for the suggestions and links.
