  Generate random password with formula

Here I introduce three formulas to generate a different random password for you.

Alphanumeric random password

Select the cell you want to place the random password, type this formula =CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(65,90))&CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(65,90))&RANDBETWEEN(10,99), and press Enter key. Then you will get a string with 4 digits, the first two are alpha characters, and the last two are numbers.

Tip: In the formula, CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(65,90)) can get one alpha character, RANDBETWEEN(10,99) can get a two-digit number, you can change the formula combination to your need. For instance, 6 digit alphanumeric password, use this formula =CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(65,90))&CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(65,90))&RANDBETWEEN(100,999)&CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(65,90)).

Alpha character random password

Select a cell to type this formula =CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(65,90)), then drag fill handle to right or down to fill the cells you need, for instance, fill other three cells if you need 4-digit alpha character. See screenshot:
