for example: 5 lists={[1,2,5,3,4],[1,5,3,4,2],[4,2,1,5,3],[2,3,1,5,4],[2,1,3,4,5]} and the original is Original=[2,1,5,3,4].

I understand that to go from [1,2,5,3,4] to [1,5,3,4,2] can be easily achieved by moving the 2 to the rear but how does one then go to [4,2,1,5,3]? Can we slide two numbers at once?

Each list has one number moved from the original list...not the previous list.

Ah, right you are fabpig. Your post two above mine does seem to say what I was saying, I just hadn't completely followed it.
