# Random Numbers With No Repetition

## I want to generate 12 random numbers between 1 and 75 w/ no repetition. I was using the aleatórioentre which translate ro "randombetween" function. But, obviusly, I cant figure out how to make them unique, with no repetition.

Generate Random Numbers In Random Cells
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.

Unique Random Numbers Between 2 Numbers
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.

Unique Random Numbers Between Numbers
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

Combination Without Repetition
how to create a list (I know how to calulate the count) of combinations without repetition when choosing 2,3,4 and 5 words from a set of 5 in Excel 2007.

e.g. Alpha,Bravo,Charlie,Delta,End

(AlphaBravo=BravoAlpha)

Choosing 2 = 10
Choosing 3 = 10
Choosing 4 = 5
Choosing 5 = 1

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

Random Numbers (1 To 40)
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

Correlation Between Random Numbers
I wonder if you think it can be possible to constraint the RAND function so that it gives off its result commensurate with the result of another RAND function with certain probability N? For example,

Say there are two random functions and the first generates 0,5667 the correlation is at 0,5 so there is a 50% probability that the second random function will generate the result very close to it, say, 0,6012….Do you think the second random function can be tweaked so that it performs in this manner….when there is a 100% correlation – the results of both random functions will agree…when it is 80% it will be very close…..do you think this can be done with NORMINV?

Random Numbers With No Duplicates
I want to set up a column of numbers that will be random without any repeating numbers.

Example: If I set up for 1,000 rows, I would like the random numbers to be 1 to 1,000, but the catch would be to have no duplicates in the column.

It has been several years since I worked with Excel and I am sure this can be done with a macro, but I am not sure how to go about it right now.

Produce Random Numbers
Im wondering is there any way/method to make a certain number of cells randomly produce to an amount you want.

5 38
6 97
7 =500

Random Numbers Not Divisible By 3
With a formula, how could I generate random numbers between 1 and 100 that are not divisible by 3?

I made this part of a formula that generates the numbers not divisible by 3:

MOD(ROW(INDIRECT("1:100")),3)0

But I am unsure how to use it to help to generate random numbers between 1 and 100 not divisible by 3.

Statistics Of Random Numbers
I have two rows in a sheet with random numbers (1 till 90).

Those numbers in those two rows I change them every 5 minutes with new one still from 1 to 90
I need a "way", in one side of my sheet (lets say in column B) to count how many times a number was repeated after finish my work (example after 2 hour's)

Is that possible with excel 2007?

Random Numbers And 2007
I am using excel 2007 with XP pro.

I want to include some random numbers in a large multi-tabbed spreadsheet, but I do not want the number to recalculate every time I make another entry on the tab or elsewhere in the workbook. I would like each tab to have one or two random number options, but each should calcualte independently based on their own inputs.

The "randbetween()" function recalcs with every/any change in the workbook.

Specifically, I want to begin with a random percent between 0 and 50% and then add three fixed values (percents) and one different random percent between 0and 30%. then I want to total all of them.

Random % (0-50) + X% + Y% + Z% + random % (0-30) = total %

Generate Random Numbers Between 0-9
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

Weighting Random Numbers In Aggregate
I have column E listing all of the favorites and column G the underdogs, each row represents one game, there are 34 all together. I want a formula to pick the team based on a random generation. That part i have....

but here is the rub.

I only want the total number of underdogs to be 20% and the favorites to be 80% of all of the picks.

I am not sure it can be done as each formula must look to what the other formulas are doing...aside from it being circular i think it just impossible or i am not as advance as some of you.

Random Numbers Generated Without Repeating
In my worksheet in column CC in C1:C20 I want Excel to ganerate 20 random numbers between 1 and 80 without repeating the same numbers.

What i have done already you can see on the attached workbook, or the table i used:

I used this table to generate the random number to give either 8m or 10.5m, except i put the VLOOKUP in the year 1 cell, added some dollars signs and copied down but that only makes them all the same, so i want a way to make each year have its own random number preferably without making 10 tables.

Identifying Consecutive Numbers In Random Order
formula to identify consecutive numbers in order, but having trouble figuring out how to identify consecutive numbers in random order.

Cell M1,N1,O1,P1, and Q1 each have a number, 1,4,9,3 and 7.

We have 3 and 4 being consecutive number but they are not in order, would like help in a formula to put a 1 on an empty cell S indicating that there is a consecutive number with a 1 if there are no consecutive numbers then it would give a 0.

The current formula only works if the consecutive numbers are in order, 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, etc...

Display Random Numbers As Generated On UserForm
I have developed some VBA code which produces a 'lucky number' using the RND function. The final number is produced by concatenating three individually generated random numbers between zero and 9. When the code is written in a Module, I can display each number as it is generated, by 'pausing' the macro with a For Next loop.

I have now developed a similar application using a MultiPage Userform, but the individual numbers are not displayed when I use exactly the same code. The only way I have found to display each number as it is generated is to use

Application.Wait

However the shortest wait time seems to be 1 second, which is too long. I would like to be able to make the MultiPage version look like the Module version.

I attach a workbook which shows both of the above.
