Can you help me solve this?

I don't know if this is the right sort of thing to post here. If not, and if anyone knows where I might post this problem please let me know, otherwise it would be great to get some feedback.

I have list of records with 7 fields, a small example of which are below:

URN F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6
=== == == == == == ==
6 1 3 1 3 6 2
7 0 2 0 2 8 2
9 3 9 3 6 9 3
12 2 5 2 4 7 2
13 0 2 0 3 6 2
14 0 1 0 2 6 1
15 2 7 2 7 9 2
16 0 2 0 4 8 1
17 2 5 1 5 8 2
18 0 2 0 1 9 1
19 0 2 0 4 7 1
21 0 2 0 4 7 1
22 0 1 0 3 6 1
23 1 4 1 6 7 1
24 2 6 1 6 9 2
25 3 8 4 6 8 3
26 2 7 3 5 8 2
27 0 2 0 2 7 2
28 1 4 2 3 6 2
29 0 1 0 3 6 1
30 0 1 0 2 7 1
31 1 4 0 5 8 2
32 1 4 0 5 8 2
33 3 10 4 7 9 3
34 1 3 0 3 8 2
36 1 4 2 5 6 1

The range of values for each field is:

URN: This is just a running number. Don't worry about the missing numbers.
F1: 0-3
F2: 1-10
F3: 0-4
F4: 1-8
F5: 5-10
F6: 1-4

In times gone by, working from F1 through to F6, the value of F1 directly influenced the values of F2 to F6. F2 greatly so, F3 to F6 less so, but still connected, although I couldn't tell you how closely.

I want to add new records. I can easily determine the values I want to enter into F2 to F6 based on what I know the new records represent, but determining F1 from the values I put into F2 to F6 is lost to me.

There 184 records in total.

Sorry if this seems a bit abstract. The records relate to a card game. I can give you the full details if it will help.

Any help you can give would be most welcome.

Kind regards

Given F1, how do you know what F2 to F6 should be?

Given F1, how do you know what F2 to F6 should be?

As I said this is a card game.

Each record is a "Character" in this card game.

F1 is a value of between 0 and 3, determining how important the character is, and also how powerful the character is.

F2 to F6 are attributes of these characters, who for the existing characters, go up as F1 goes up.

So F2 to F6 for existing characters DO go up as F1 goes up, as can be seen by interrogating the 180 odd existing cards.

The ranges of values for F2 to F6, as they relate to F1 are as follows:

F1..........F2
==.........==
3............8-10
2............5-7
1............3-4
0............1-2


F1..........F3
==.........==
3............2-4
2............1-3
1............0-2
0............0-1


F1..........F4
==.........==
3............5-8
2............4-7
1............2-6
0............0-4


F1..........F5
==.........==
3............8-10
2............7-9
1............6-8
0............6-8


F1..........F6
==.........==
3............2-3
2............2
1............1-2
0............1-2

Cheers
