Subj:   Random function with a column value
 
From:   Brian.Jones

Hello -

How can I use a column value with the random function? For example, I have a table with a column named STORE_COUNT which is an integer with values from 1 to 5.

When I try:

     SELECT
        RANDOM(1,STORE_COUNT) AS MYCOLUMNX
     FROM ...

I get an 3707 error:

     Code = 3707.
     3707:  Syntax error, expected something like an integer or a
            decimal number or a floating point number or '+'
            or '-' between ',' and the      word
     'STORE_COUNT'.
     Output directed to Answer set window

Any suggestions? Thank you. -Brian
