Pragmatic Compendium

inspiring the pragmatic practice of intimacy with Christ



That would be the Microsoft Excel cell formula to generate a random number between 1 and 100. You know, like when you have a drawing and need to pick a random number for a winner? Like I do here at Pragmatic Compendium every week? (it doesn’t have to be between 1 and 100. the number “100” can be replaced by any number)

I’ve posted detailed instructions and a screen shot for this little time saver over at the Pragmatic Computing blog, so if you are tired of drawing little pieces of paper out of a hat every time you want to “select a winner,” head on over and check it out!

Of course, don’t forget to enter this week’s clean sweep(stakes) giveaway while you’re here!

  2. Thanks! I have a draw to do this week in my library, so I think I’ll try this!

  3. That’s a pretty neat formula. I don’t do drawings on my blog, just in real life. I use to pick my #s but this would be great for the event I’m doing in a few weeks where we won’t have internet access!
