## Formula For Drawing Cards Off Random Number?

Dec 19, 2013

I am creating a "board game" type game in excel and one of the functions will be landing on a cell. When you are on this cell you click the checkbox to the left of it which then flips the value to true. I then have another formula generating a random number between 1 and 100 if the value is true. I would like to make cards in a separate sheet out of single cells but make about 40-50 of them maybe less. I want it to be able to pull a card(cell's) contents into another cell on another sheet. But I want it to be a random card associated with the random number generator. I can definitely make changes if this isn't possible but the point of it is to show the contents of one of the random cards.

## Formula To Return Random Number From A List And Associated Name

Feb 12, 2009

My objective is to take two different random counts of numbers written in column b, ranging from B9:B66. However I want to highlight the specific fields listed in the example below, and pull random numbers from those selected fields only. Then I want to pull another set of random numbers in the same column B9:B66, however using a different specific set of fields within column B; as shown in the second random formula string. Use the Press 9 feature to randomly select the two different numbers. What this attempt is trying accommplish is selecting one boy, one girl who have assigned numbers adjacent to their names(name field populated in column c).
What am I doing in correctly?

HTML Formula written to B70
=INDEX(B9:B66,RANDBETWEEN(1,COUNTA(B9,B13,B15,B16,B17,B20,B21,B23,B25,B31,B33,B34,B35,B37,B38,B39,B41,B42,B44,B45,B47,B50,B51,B52)),1)

Formula written to B72
=INDEX(B9:B66,RANDBETWEEN(1,COUNTA(B10,B11,B12,B14,B18,B19,B22,B24,B26,B27,B28,B29,B30,B32,B36,B40,B43,B46,B48,B49,B53,B54,B55,B56)),1)

## Formula To Total Column With Random Number Of Rows

Apr 6, 2009

## Formula Required To Take First Letter In 1 Cells And Add Random Number To Create Unique ID

Mar 27, 2014

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.

## Use A Macro That Creates Sheets And Places Formula In Cells

Jun 20, 2006

I am trying to use a macro that creates sheets and places formulae in cells but the resulting formulae are not what I coded. Here is similar

Function CreateSheet(i As Integer)
Set Adjustment = Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(6, 3 + 4 * i)
With Selection
.Offset(22, 9).Formula = "=Sheet2!B14*Rating!" & CellAddress
.Offset(23, 9).Formula = "=Sheet2!C14*K4*Rating!" & CellAddress
.Offset(24, 9).Formula = "=Sheet2!D14*K5*Rating!" & CellAddress
End With.............

## Changing Text In One Cell Creates Formula Change In Column Below?

Apr 1, 2014

I have a list of pricing and I want to be able to change the text of cell, say "D1", which says "Standard" to say "Premium" and all the formulas would change in accordance. The "Standard" pricing would be, Starting D2, "=C2*.3" and I want them all to go to "Premium" pricing which would be formula "=C2*.35".

What would be the best method of creating this function or formula?

## Random Number

Dec 10, 2006

How do I make a row of 5 random numbers in A2:A6 that are not the same as each other. It's basically for a Bingo card. I have a formula that can calculate the random numbers =INT(RAND()*15)+1 under the B's for example, but I can't seem to figure out how to make it so they are not the same.

## 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.

## MC W/Random Number Generation

May 4, 2006

I get the following error whenever I try running a Monte Carlo simulation with iterations in excess of 64000 (The MC simulation calls the 'NormSInv' worksheet function at least once per iteration, and the argument to the 'NormSInv' function is always a standard normal RANDOM number also generated by Excel VBA): Run-time error '1004': Unable to get the NormSInv property of the WorksheetFunction class
Why do I inevitably encounter this error ONLY when the number of iterations exceeds 64000, for instance? Simulations with iterations < 64000 run smoothly without a glitch.

## Recalculating A Random Number

Jun 2, 2006

I am using the data analysis add-in to generate a random number (using the random number generation) using a normal distribution. The problem is, i want it to recalculate these numbers every time the worksheet is recalculated but the numbers seem to be values only.

## Generate Random Number Between

Nov 28, 2006

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.

Jul 29, 2009

I understand how RAND and RANDBETWEEN work, but have a slightly more complicated random number generation problem that requires a number that isn't solely between two numbers.

I have one cell that is randomly generating a number between 0 and 350 (we'll call this value A) and another randomly generating a number between 0 and 15 (value B). Then, I have a third cell (value C) that equals 15 minus B. Where I am having trouble is with a fourth cell (value D). This cell I want to have randomly generate a number between 0 and 350 but it needs to be D less than the value in A or C more than the value in A. Is there an advanced random number generation technique that can solve this?

## Generating Random Number List

Oct 20, 2009

I have a spreadsheet of 1000+ companies and I want to take a random sampling of 100 of them. I would assume this could be accomplished by auto-filling a numerical value to each line of data (which I did), then scrambling only the column with the numbers (which I can't figure out), and then selecting the entire text and resorting it to put the numbers back in order and then just work with the first 100 rows (which I can do, if I knew how to make the numbers random).
