I need the easiest way to randomize or generate team numbers in a league. Using COL A assign numbers between 1 & 8 without duplicates. Then repeat 5 more times. This has to be done on the spot and has time constraints as the players will be waiting for their team assignments.
EXAMPLE: I have 48 players which will be assigned to 8 teams of 6. I want to randomize the drawing so the same players don't play on the same teams each week. Also to be able to adjust number of teams determined by how many players are present. either 6 , 8, or 10 teams.
I'm trying to set up a system of sorts to track "services"
At the top of my 'new service" page, I need a button, which I then need to have a macro run on.
Sheet 1 is basically where I'd be entering the info, and sheet 2 where it would be stored. The button at the top is called Generate New "service' Number. This then needs to generate a new number on sheet 2 in A2 (then once 2 is populated, generate new in 3, then 4, then 5 etc...
I have a macro on Save Service Button at the bottom, which transposes the data into what would be used as a database to store all the services. That Macro then also needs to only transpose and paste data into the row corresponding with the "service number".
I want to generate numbers (1 to 15) in cells A1 through O1, but the number in each cells should be unique compare to the other cells, how can I do it? If I use =randbetween(1,15), I can not get unique number in each cell, some numbers are duplicated.
In an earlier life I was tasked with finding a "random" method of selecting two numbers from a "1 to 20" range so that the generated numbers can be applied to an set of people who will be partnered in a golf game draw.
It is only one draw per year so I don't care if the players have previously played together in past years.
easily be modified by a "passable knowledge level" person to be able to select a mystery "9" out of 18 holes that count for scores that particular round.
(btw: this is an issue only for the 20 guys who go away once a year to play golf, the world will not collapse if I have to draw numbers out of a hat, just looking for a slightly more elegant solution and I already have a few scoring macros so my first guess (but not only possibility) is VBA)
i have worked in access using vba procedures. i can easily create a form in access that generates a random integer number between 0 and 20 and the user will guess the number between 1 to 20 if the random number is 16 and the user enters 14 the program will display a msg box saying too low or too high. here is the code .
Option Explicit Private Const MAX = 20 Private Const MIN = 1 Private iKey As Integer Private lTries As Long
Private Function Random() As Integer Random = CInt(Int((MAX - MIN + 1) * Rnd() + MIN)) End Function
Private Sub cmdGuess_Click() Dim lGuess As Long
now i have to do the same thing in excel create a program that will ask the user to enter numbers between 0 to 20 and see if the random number and user guess is same or not. but i have never worked in excel using vba procedures how can i achieve the same thing in excel using a vba procedures.
For my assignment, I am supposed to create a worksheet that will generate a random social security number (using the correct social security form of 000-00-0000) There are supposed to be a billion social security possibilities and each should be equally likely to be selected in the worksheet.
I want to generate random times in excel between upper and lower limits , which i can do , but i also want dates in same cells with out randomization , means dates should act independently and time should randomize
it should be something like that

i had a basic spreadsheet for my incomings and i got wiped with my hd exploding!! i know how much the total was i just need a way of creating a list of random amounts within a specified range over a year to give to my accountant.
Is it possible to add letters to this "Unique random number" generator it is very fast and takes only 5s to run on 50,000 rows, I have a different "Unique random Sequence generator" macro but it takes about 30 minutes to run on 50,000 rows
Sub generateuniquerandom() Dim b() As Boolean, e As Range, k&, x& Dim lRow As Long With Sheets(1) lRow = .Range("F" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
I'm needing to generate a unique random value for a database with 3546 cases. The unique random values cannot be duplicates of each other. I tried the =RANDLOTTO function that I learned of in an old post on this board, but that results in "#NAME?" appearing in the first cell. I tried to install the Add-Ins (both the Analysis ToolPak and the Analysis ToolPak - VBA, but nothing seems to happen. Is there another way to generate these numbers?
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.
I have 1200 doctor/patient records to input into an excel spreadsheet for import to an online EHR database. I can set up all the normal formulas and formatting but for the life of me not figure out how to create a custom formula to take the first letter of the patient first name and last name and add 6 figures to create a unique patient identifier.
ie. James + Smith+ random 6 figures = JS245318.
In my spreadsheet the first name is under Column 1, Last name Column 3 and the unique number generated in column 4.
In Excel 2010, I can manually enter the GetPivotData function (and it works), but with Generate GetPivotData selected / enabled (in PivotTable Tools --> Options --> PivotTable --> Options), the GetPivotData function isn't automatically generated.
I have Column C and D filled with numeric temperature and humidity data. I need next 16 rows (8 more set) to be filled with randomly generated dummy data by the values exist in C and D. Same numbers but randomly distributed.
I'm currently working on my masters dissertation and am using excel 2010.
Basically, I'm trying to generate a list of say, 1000 numbers within a range. I can already do this using the rand() function. However, I need excel to take each random number, apply it into a formula, and then list the answers in a seperate location. This would be easy to do if there was one simple function (which i could just insert into any adjacent cell). The problem is that each random number value is input into a table. The table, which has about 10 columns and 200+ rows, gives one final answer.
I'm sure there has to be a faster way than creating 1000 tables for each random number generated.
Let's say I have a list of 1000 random numbers in sheet 1. the function table is in sheet 2 and produces the answer in the same sheet, in a single cell. I'd like excel to use each random number generated, input it into the function table, attain the answer from the table, and list it in the cell next to the random number.
