# Enter Sequential & Random Numbers

Feb 1, 2008

I am trying to create a summary sheet that will look on certain worksheets based on on a cell. For example:

If cell E1 equals 10-Oct-30 then it will pull data from tab 'End Oct 30' I would prefer to use a formula for this calculations. to aid in another persons potential use. A custom function would be OK.

## Macro To Enter Poisson Random Numbers

Mar 18, 2009

I have a spreadsheet which has a column of 100 Poisson-distributed random numbers (lambda=2) which I generated using Data Analysis -> Random Number Generation in Excel. I want to create a macro to put these numbers in for me. When I tried recording one, it didn't work. Is there a way to do it?

## Generate Random Numbers In Random Cells

Sep 18, 2009

I am working on a Random Cycle Count Generator that provides random SKU#s based on 3 separate columns of SKU listings. The user clicks a button to generate the SKU#s to cycle count for that day. What I would like to see is a date stamp in the columns next(B,D,F) to the referenced SKU listing(A,C,E) based on which SKU#s are generated. This will let me see the last date that the SKU was generated. I would also like it to automatically save after generating.

## Using If To Sum() Non-sequential Numbers

Jan 23, 2009

I need a formula to add data in it's respective column, only if the month and year match.

The columns of data will be very long, thousands of lines possibly.

So, basically, in this example.

in O1, if the the data in the columns below match the month(M1) and year (N1), then sum those variables.

## Add Sequential Numbers To Range

Aug 17, 2007

I have created two names within column A (ie: Insert/Name/Define)

in cell A1 I've named StartA01
in cell A5 I've named EndA05

I would like to create a sequential number within this range via script, whereby when new rows are inserted, the script will update the order.

eg:

begin with:

A01
A02
A03
A04
A05

3 rows inserted will update to:

A01
A02
A03
A04
A05
A06
A07
A08

## Inputting Sequential Numbers From One Cell

Nov 28, 2008

I am trying to make excel list in a column like 1,2,3,4,5. this is dependant on a value i place in one cell eg 5

i want excel to then place 1,2,3,4,5 in seperate cells down a column. does this make sense.

then the calculations will only appear the the numbered cells.

## Display Missing Sequential Numbers?

Apr 17, 2013

I have a sheet where one column has sequencial numbers from lowest to highest with some missing. So for example: A1 1, A2 3, A3 5, A4 6. Is there a formula that will display all the numbers that are missing from this column without skipping rows? So let's say: B1 2, B2 4 ect.

Basically I will be putting this on a different tab, so someone can go to that tab and see what numbers have not been used. It is a large range and is difficult for someone to scan through it all.

## Inserting Sequential Numbers Into A Column

Oct 1, 2009

I have a column of an undefined number of rows where I need to add item numbers from 1 to however many items there are, starting from A9 downwards.

The last 3 used rows on the sheet contain signatures etc so it should not number the bottom 3 rows.

pretty sure its fairly simple code but i dont have anything similar from previous files that i can re-use to do this :p

just needs a simple

count how many rows are blank from A9 downwards (to say A200)
for num=1 to count do
Cell range(A(9+num) = num
end

i just dont know the code well enough to write it and make it work :p

## Autofill Rows With Sequential Numbers

Oct 8, 2011

I currently have an array that is 6 columns by 7 rows that is populated by referencing other workbooks and returning the sum of their values. For issue tracking revison etc... I would like to have the rows incrementally numbered (0,1,2... until it reaches number "X" which is a grand total in one of the fields.

This would happen for column 1 row 1 all the way through column 6 row 7 and fields with 0 as a total don't get a number or can have a 0 or blank.

Ex.
1 2 3 4 5 6 (rows)
1 3 x x x x x
2 x 7 x x x x
3 4
4
5
6
7

row numbering...
1
2
3 (skip col. 1 row 2)
1
2
3
4..... continues on till the end.

I would like this to be something somewhat automatic to eliminate the redundancy of having to manually perform this task.

## Update Sequential Numbers After Row Deletion

Oct 16, 2007

How do I get my worksheet (ServicePlan) to update column A (plan number) after deleting a the row from a userform. When I delete the row the plan numbers do not update.

Example: I delete plan #1 from the worksheet. The plan number #2 should now be amended to read plan #1 and the plan number for record #3 should now be amended to read Plan #2, however the plan numbers #2 and #3 remain the same.

Plan #Rv# Name:Dept: Rep:
11.1mikeEnvironmental Cathy S.
22.1TomCasualty Rich A.
3 1.5 Michelle Special Programs Diane

Here is the code I used for the delete plan # button. Thank you

Private Sub CommandButton15_Click()

If MsgBox("Are you sure you wish to delete this record?", vbYesNo, "Confirm Deletion") = vbYes Then

sheet1.Activate

Dim strFind
Dim Nullstring
Dim rSearch As Range 'range to search
Set rSearch = sheet1.Range("A2:A1000")
Dim c
Dim r As Long

## Check & Add Sequential Numbers In Column

Jan 26, 2008

I have two columns A and B filled with numbers. Column A has the identifier number and Column B has number that represents intensity for the data set.

Column A can be anything from 75-1000, however, sometimes the adjacent rows are not sequential (i.e. 101, 102, 104).

1) Is there a way to automatically check for skipping numbers in Column A.
2) When it finds a skipped number, insert a row for column A and B.
3) Then put the correct number in Column A (i.e. 103) then put 0 in for column B

## Using A Text File To Hold Sequential Numbers

Oct 14, 2009

i found a macro that im trying to get working from the site below to generate a number everytime my template is opened.

ive put the code in the thisworkbook module as directed and changed the relevant path but it doesnt do anything i think im missing something but cant see what. this is the code ive placed in thisworkbook module of my template

## Fill In Missing Sequential & Repeating Numbers

Dec 10, 2008

I am busy with a very large dataset +-20 000 records showing the movement data
and I am having problem with inserting missing data: I have columns titled day hour and position, but multiple records for each as data was initally recorded by second. Data looks like this

Day Hour Position
1 2 Z5
1 2 Z5
1 3 Z5
1 3 Z4
1 16 Z1
12 2 Z3
13 0 Z3

What I need to end up with is a sequential dataset running from day 1 to 388 with hours 1-24 of each day. Positions need to be filled in for all data recorded (see above). The big problem is that movements between positions need to be recorded and accounted for i.e if more than >80 of time was spent at the position Z3 then that is the position for the hour.

## Roll Sequential Numbers Back & Forward

Jan 28, 2008

I am running a worksheet that runs through 4 week periods.

Example: 10.1 10.2 10.3 10.4 11.1 11.2 11.3 etc.

I wish to insert a formula that will roll forward or back this data when required.

I have no problem rolling whole numbers & dates.

Iam using Excel 2000.

## Insert Rows For Missing Sequential Numbers

Feb 19, 2008

The excel file has industrial information arranged by sector. The sectors are represented by six digit codes that are not strictly sequential. For example, a typical example of consecutive codes is 120011,120012,120030,120040,130011. There are upwards of three hundred sectors.

The data I am using is missing certain sectors - sometimes more than 30 at a time. I would like to find a quick way to identify the missing sectors and insert rows there, preferably with the first cell in the row being the missing sectoral code.

I have a similar problems with columns as well. But I can always just transpose the data and use whatever solution works for the rows.

## Data Validation Dynamic Sequential Numbers List

Jul 21, 2007

I am looking for a way to define a 'Data Validated' Cell to hold a List of Dynamic Sequential Numbers - from 1 to the Value of cell A4. For example:

If cell A4 has a value of 5 the 'Data Validated' List will be 1,2,3,4,5

I have tried to 'name' the Array-Formula {=ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&A4))} and put the 'name' as the List source but without success.

## Copy / Drag From Sequential Column To Non-Sequential Ones While Retaining Sequence

Jan 29, 2014

I have a form made that needs to copy a value from another sheet. The Form is 10 rows 5 columns and and in format for easy print. On sheet2 I have a column where each row is filled with a name.

I need to put this name into sheet1, so in the the appropriate cell I put =Sheet2!B2 and it gives me the value (name) from the other sheet.

Then I want to copy the form bellow the 1st one so that I have the same form but with the next name, which means I want =Sheet2!B3 to appear when I copy, but since my form is 10 rows when I copy it the formula copies to =Sheet2!B12 instead of B3.

I need to make close to a thousand of this forms ready for printing and I would like to avoid having to manually set the formula for the next cell.

## Print Same Sheet Multiple Times With Sequential Page Numbers?

Dec 21, 2012

I am trying to set up excel sheets for documents that we print often. I would like to print them with page numbers in right footer that increases sequentially.

setting up a macro. But very time I print it starts from same number instead of the number after where I left off. Example: if I print today with page numbers 1 through 12, next time I want it to print number 13 through whatever no of copies printed.

Here is the code I copied from one of the threads here:

[Code] .....

I need the page number in right footer and also the macro to save the last number printed.

## Fill Range With Sequential Numbers Based On Corresponding Column Groups

Feb 15, 2010

In the attached workbook I'm trying to populate Column E with sequential numbers (as shown) based upon a changing range (defined as a named range called 'range'). Is it possible to write a formula in the cells in Column E that will do this?

## Generating Random Numbers Or Set Of Numbers Which Add Up To Certain Number?

Oct 24, 2013

I need to generate 8 (random) numbers which should range between 0 to 80 and the sum of those generated 8 numbers should be 80.? How can I achieve this.

## Unique Random Numbers Between Numbers

Dec 14, 2006

I have a list numbered 0 to 300. What I am looking for is a formula to randomly select 150 unique sets of two numbers and list them in separate columns for a competition draw and should appear as per the example below

HomeAway
7v96

146v25

## Unique Random Numbers Between 2 Numbers

Mar 17, 2008

I am looking for a way to create a random order of numbers in a given range. For example, A1:a100 to be populated with a random number between 1 and 100, but not to duplicate, using every possible number within that range. I use the RANDBETWEEN function to generate the numbers, but I cannot prvent them from duplicating.

## Random Numbers (1 To 40)

Sep 9, 2005

What do I need to do please to have a number in a row 1 to 40 as an example below

1,23,9,25,33,40 each row needs to be 1 to 40 but number no more than once
six rows deep yes the other rows can have the same numbers as above or below

=INDEX(ROW(\$A\$1:\$F\$10),RANK(\$H1,\$H\$1:\$H\$60))

=RAND() copied H1:H60

## VBA For Random Numbers?

Apr 6, 2014

How can I use a macro on a button in SHEET 1 to generate random numbers on SHEET 2 as follows?

Cell A1: (1-10)
Cell A2: (1-6)
Cell A3: (1-100)
Cell A4: (1-12)

I've got it working with formulas, but every time I press "DELETE" the random numbers jump to new values.

## Random Numbers ...

Aug 13, 2008

I have had some difficulty searching this on the web, but how would I generate a random number between 1 and n?

## Random Number Between Two Numbers VBA

Jan 3, 2014

I have build a system that needs a lot of random numbers generated to work.

I have used what I thought would work to generate me these numbers like this example:

VB:
Lastrow = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("RPlay").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
RPlayerNum = Int((Lastrow - 2 + 1) * Rnd + 2)

This would generate a random number into RPlayerNum variable, based on the list in sheet RPlay, missing off row 1 as the header.

However we have noticed a massive flaw in this code.... It works as long as the excel file is open, each time run it gives a different random number. However if you close the excel file and open it, then run it, it ALWAYS gives the same number first run, every time.

## Generate Random Numbers?

Aug 19, 2014

I am creating an excel spread sheet for a project I am doing, I need to create a daily chart for 6 months of water usage that results in averaging set targets.

I have made a chart with the average uses per day but would like to have daily numbers that average out to what i have but in a random sequence e.g. i have that a shower uses 320 litres per day for 2 people is there a way i can make a chart that says: 300 (a1) 340(a2) 260(a3) 360(a4) etc i need to do this for 180 days with random numbers generated to average the same overall. I dont know even how to generate random numbers.

## Random Numbers Without Macro?

Feb 3, 2014

Any way to make say cells A1 thru A10 produce random numbers from 0 to 9.

I would like to do it without a macro if possible. I also need a button to generate those random numbers. I know this button may make it impossible to not use a macro. If it has to be done with a macro then so be it.

## Summing Random Numbers?

Feb 23, 2014

I have a process that generates the value X in cell A1 randomly. So I can change the value of X in A1 by clicking on F9. I want to sum a sequence of X values. I can do this by manually copying each X to a row of cells and then summing the row values. But that is tedious. Can the summation be done automatically without being regarded as being circuler?

## Generate Random Numbers Between 0-9

Feb 1, 2009

I am trying to generate random numbers between 0 - 9 in ten cells that do not repeat an always include every value 0 - 9 (0, 1, 2, 3, 4,...9). The object is to have the numbers randomize each time. So cells A1:A10 could look like this:

3
9
4
5
1
0
6
8
7
2

Or, they could look like this:

9
7
5
2
8
4.................
