Sum Up From Random Table?

Aug 1, 2014

Since the range selection is going to be changing at time intervals( automatically), they can not be pre -defined( as above in g2,h2)

Suppose we want to know the sum of all the values against 11(now which is described as =g6 in cell J2),

Creating Random Multiplication Table

Aug 9, 2013

Here's what I'd like to do:

Have 10 columns... one column would be for the "1s", another for the "2s", another for the "3s", etc...

But I don't want to have them in straight order (i.e. 1 x 1 =, 1 x 2 =, 1 x 3 =, etc...) because the pattern is easily memorized, no matter what number he's working on.

I'd like to be able to hit a button (or something) and have each column shuffle (or randomize) the order in which the equations will be displayed.

So, a column might come up 3 x 6 =, 3 x 9 =, 3 x 1 =, 3 x 4 =, etc...

And next time it might come up 3 x 5 =, 3 x 2 =, 3 x 4 =, etc...

This way he won't be able to memorize any patterns and he'll actually need to learn his multiplication tables.

Getting Formula To Find Data In Random Table

Jan 25, 2012

I was trying to figure how to write a formula that would return the contents of a cell in a table.

Here is the situation....

I have a 10 row by 10 column "grid". the top and left side of the grid contains a random number from 0 to 9. The numbers do not repeat.

It would remind you of a block pool.

If I have two numbers, 0 to 9 , is there a way to return the cell that corresponds to the intersection of those numbers in my table?

It would be both a Vlookup and an Hlookup which I can't do.

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.

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.

VBA Random Name Select

Dec 12, 2012

I have been thinking about a name selection tool that would automatically pick a few names for internal audit. I can handle the useform launch and other basics but here is what I see happening.

1. The empname! sheet contains a list of all the company employees, with employee number in column A, names in column B and an "X" or blank in column C.

2. The main sheet called auditmaster! contains nothing currently

3. When the code is ran the userform prompts the user to select how many individuals to audit by entering an integer in a textbox.

4. If the user selects 5 for instance, the code will run and will select 5 random employees for internal audit. It does this by first checking column A of the empname! sheet and seeing what the highest and lowest numbers are. This would create the range for the random function.

Next if there is an "X" in column C of empname! sheet, those employees numbers are excluded from the random choice.

Following this the function will select the appropriate number of individuals to audit using random again and place their names/number on the masteraudit! sheet.

The detail should be placed as the following, employee number goes to column F, name to column G. Starting with row 10. The code should also number the results 1 - however many were selected for audit in column E.

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)

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

Random Draw

Dec 1, 2008

I was looking for some code to randomly generate a number for a prize draw I am doing. I found a great piece on this site, which I have slightly changed to give me what I have below.

It works great except for one thing I cannot work out, I have the code below working on cell "C1", I would like it to work in cell "C5", but I can't seem to work this out.

Sub SlotsNum()
Dim w As Long, x As String, y As Long
x = Format(Int((Range("B2") - Range("B1") + 1) * Rnd + Range("B1")), "0000")
For y = 1 To 1
For w = 1 To 250
Range("C" & y) = Int(8000 * Rnd)
Next w
Range("C" & y) = CInt(Mid(x, y, 4))
Next y
End Sub

Also, whilst here. i will have one other problem, with it being a prize draw I do not want to draw the same number twice. At the moment I have a small macro that copies the winning name that appears on the main screen (via a vlookup) onto a winners spreadsheet. I am thinking of then creating another macro that replaces the winning name on the master list with an "Already Won" entry, so we can just select again.

Random Assignments

Oct 30, 2009

I have a worksheet that has weekly meeting dates in column A and in columns B through M different responsibilities/task. Each week, I have to schedule 1 person to perform each task. A person can only perform 1 task each week. I have a list of 40 people that are eligible to do this.

Currently I am assigning each person to a task while trying to evenly assign people and space out the timing as to how often they're assigned. Of course, being human has led my results to both favor and overlook some people. Is there a way to randomly assign any 12 people from my list into each week?

Random Shuffle

Apr 6, 2007

I am making a barrel racing spreadsheet. In Column B I am putting the participants names, in Column C I am putting the name of their horse. So Row 1 will be my header row. What I am trying to do is a random shuffle, but the participant and their horse have to stay together. Also is there a way, where I can put the stipulation, that if a person is randomly put in number 5, that she has to be at least 3 spots away from that number.

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:

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.

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?

Random Sampling Without Replacement

Jun 5, 2009

I'm trying to take a random sample without replacement. The sample is also partially representative, e.g. if a certain proportion of the data are Class A and a certain proportion is Class B, that proportion is maintained in the sample. After the proportions are set, the observations within each class are randomized.

Is there anyway to sample a number of rows, where the number of rows is based on the value in another cell, without having to use a lookup function or index match? Sorry if the question is a little unclear; please let me know if you need any clarification.
