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.

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.

How To Generate Random Numbers In Range 1:20 With Unique Results

Mar 22, 2014

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)

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.

To Generate Some Random Problems. But The 1milion

Dec 15, 2008

name="ProgId" content="Word.Document">****** name="Generator" content="Microsoft Word 12">****** name="Originator" content="Microsoft Word 12"> Generate random problems
In addition to data from af directory i got it must be possible to solve some home-made problems. Therefore i need to make a program that can generate new problems in Excel - likely on the same sheet used for the imported problems (another code i got).

It should be possible to specify the size of the problem, in other words the number of cities. Like the problems from the same directory. The problems i am generating have to consist of a number of cities with its x-y-coordinates. It will be useful if the program or the user sets a minimum and maximum value of the allowed x-y values so they are within a certain interval.

Do i need a very big code for this?
