Generate lottery numbers with Excel Functions

This method will walk you through applying several Excel functions to generate lottery numbers. And you can do as follows:

1. In a blank worksheet, type column headers in Range A1:C1 as below screen shot shown:

2. Enter formulas in Column A, Column B, and Column C:

(1) In Cell A2, enter the formula =RAND(), and then drag the Fill handle to the range A2:A50.
(2) In Cell B2, enter the formula =RANK($A2,$A$2:$A$50)+COUNTIF(B$1:B1,B1)-1, and then drag the Fill Handle to the Range B2:B50. (In the formula, A2 is the random number left to current cell, $A$2:$A$50 are all random numbers we got with the first formula, B$1 is the first cell in Column B, and B1 is the cell above current cell).
(3) In Range C2:C50, enter sequence numbers from 1 to 49.

Then you will get a table as left screen shot shown:

3. Find a blank range, type sequence numbers horizontally in a row as below screen shot shown:

4. Below the first sequence number of 1, enter the formula =VLOOKUP(G1,$B$1:$C$50,2,FALSE) into it, and the drag the Fill Handle to the Range you need.

Note: In this formula, G1 is the cell with the first sequence number of 1, $B$1:$C$50 are Unique Rank column and Ball Number column, 2 means find values in the second column of Range $B$1:$C$50.

Then you will get the lottery numbers as below screen shot shown:

5. It's optional. To prevent the lottery numbers from changing automatically when current worksheet refreshes, you can click the Formula > Calculation Options > Manual.


Generate lottery numbers with VBA Macro

This method will guide you to apply a VBA macro to generate lottery numbers in Excel. Please do as follows:

1. Press Alt + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module to open a new module window, and paste following VBA code into it:

VBA: Lottery Number Generator in Excel

Sub LotteyCode()
Dim Rng As Range
Dim WorkRng As Range
Dim xNumbers(49) As Integer
On Error Resume Next
xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel"
Set WorkRng = Application.Selection
Set WorkRng = Application.InputBox("Out put to (single cell):", xTitleId, WorkRng.Address, Type:=8)
Set WorkRng = WorkRng.Range("A1")
For xIndex = 1 To 49
xNumbers(xIndex) = xIndex
Next
For xIndex = 1 To 6
xNum = 1 + Application.Round(Rnd * (49 - xIndex), 0)
WorkRng.Offset(0, xIndex - 1).Value = xNumbers(xNum)
xNumbers(xNum) = xNumbers(50 - xIndex)
Next
End Sub

3. Press the F5 key or click the Run button to run this VBA macro.

4. Now in the popping up dialog box, specify a cell to output the lottery numbers, and click the OK button.

Then you will see 6 unique lottery numbers are generated and displayed in the specified cells.
