It is more than a year I have left my software job. However I miss computer programming and now trying to use my programming skill in puzzle image creations. I am trying to create puzzle images for the Sudoku puzzle which has converse rule. Most of the time I am using Excel to create Sudoku puzzle images and doing programming to generate automated images for converse rule. Rossini Sudoku puzzle image is generated in this way where I programmed in Excel to draw arrows once the answer string is entered. I have created four such Rossini Sudoku puzzles. My earlier Rossini Sudoku puzzle was manual created and it took me a long time to verify for the converse rules of this puzzle. Soon I will be posting another Rossini Sudoku puzzles.
This Rossini Sudoku, I am posting as my 105th puzzle in Fun With Sudoku Series.
Rules of Rossini Sudoku
Classic Sudoku Rules apply.  Additionally the arrows indicate that the nearest three digits in the row (column) are in ascending or descending order (increasing towards the direction the arrow is pointing towards). If there is no arrow outside a row/column, the nearest 3 digits therein cannot be in either ascending or descending order.
