The Excel RANDBETWEEN function returns a random integer between given numbers. RANDBETWEEN recalculates when a worksheet is opened or changed.
Get a random integer between two values
=RANDBETWEEN (bottom, top)
bottom - An integer representing the lower value of the range.
top - An integer representing the lower value of the range.
Use the RANDBETWEEN function to get a random integer between bottom and top. For example, =RANDBETWEEN(1,50) might generate the number 28
RANDBETWEEN calculates a new value each time the worksheet is calculated. To stop random numbers from being updated, copy the cells that contain RANDBETWEEN to the clipboard, then use Paste Special > Values to convert to text.
To generate a set of random integers in multiple cells, select the cells, enter the RANDBETWEEN function, and press control + enter.
To get a random number that doesn't change when the worksheet is calculated, enter RANDBETWEEN in the formulas bar and then press F9 to convert the formula into its result.
The RANDBETWEEN function takes two numbers, a bottom and top number, and generates a random integer in between. Dates in Excel are serial numbers, so you can use the DATE function to create the lower number and the...
The CHOOSE function does most of the work in this formula. Choose takes a single numeric value as its first argument (index_number), and uses this number to select and return one of the values provides as subsequent...
The CHOOSE function provides the framework for this formula. Choose takes a single numeric value as its first argument (index_number), and uses this number to select and return one of the values provides as subsequent...
To generate random integers between two numbers, you can use the RANDBETWEEN function.
In the example shown, the formula in B5 is:
This formula is then copied down from B5 to B11. The result is...
Note: this formula uses the named range "data" (B5:E104) for readability and convenience. If you don't want to use a named range, substitute $B$5:$E$104 instead.
To pull a random value out of a list or table, we'll...
The RANDBETWEEN function generates random numbers between two integers. The CHOOSE function takes a number as the first argument, and uses that number to select the "nth" item from the following arguments.
So, in this...
