Hi, the question isn't clear but try this. Select the cells you want the numbers in and run this code. Because you are in the range 1 to 84 you mest selevt 84 cells or less Sub Unique_Rands() Dim FillRange As Range Set FillRange = Selection For Each c In FillRange Do c.Value = Int((84 * Rnd) + 1) Loop Until WorksheetFunction.CountIf(FillRange, c.Value) < 2 Next End Sub -- Mike When competing hypotheses are otherwise equal, adopt the hypothesis that introduces the fewest assumptions while still sufficiently answering the question.

Well..., I don't know how much of a "gambler" you are - but as a "Gimmick" you are invited to try the proposal in the picture. Any cell - in range F1:F84 must be blank. An "X" points that that value was generated more than once. Cells A1, B1 and F1 should be copied down all the way until row 84. http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/5083/nonamesi.png Micky "Steve Bedard" wrote: > How do you randomly generate numbers from 1 to 84 without duplicates in Excel > 2007?
