Subj:   Re: Random function with a column value
 
From:   Victor Sokovin

  Generic version with arbitrary minval and maxval:  


  random(1,2000000000) mod ( maxval - minval + 1) + minval  


It's probably too late to think about this now but whatever is left in my head of the lectures on math statistics issues a warning as to whether this will still be a *random* function. Of course, it doesn't matter for those who just want "some" numbers but those interested in the statistical quality of the data might need to do some testing.


Regards,

Victor
