Insert random numbers between two numbers with RAND function and RANDBETWEEN formulas

This method will apply the RAND function and RANDBETWEEN function to insert random numbers between two numbers into a specified range in Excel. Please view below formulas:

Formula Description (Result)
=RAND() A random number between 0 and 1 (varies)
=RAND()*100 A random number between 0 and 100 (varies)
=RANDBETWEEN(low, high) A random integral number between two given integer numbers, such as RANDBETWEEN(50, 100).

See below screenshots:

Random numbers between 0 and 1
=RAND()
random numbers between 0 and 1
Random numbers between 0 and 100
=RAND()*100
random numbers between 0 and 100
Random integer numbers between 50 and 100
=RANDBETWEEN(50, 100)
random integer numbers between 50 and 100

Insert random numbers between two numbers with specified decimal places by VBA

Below VBA can help you insert any random integer numbers or random numbers with given decimal places into a specified range in Excel. Please do as follows:

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys, and it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module window.

Public Function RandomNumbers(Num1 As Long, Num2 As Long, Optional Decimals As Integer)
'Update20131113
Application.Volatile
Randomize
If IsMissing(Decimals) Or Decimals = 0 Then
    RandomNumbers = Int((Num2 + 1 - Num1) * Rnd + Num1)
Else
    RandomNumbers = Round((Num2 - Num1) * Rnd + Num1, Decimals)
End If
End Function

3. Save and close the code, then in a blank cell, input this formula =RandomNumbers(X,Y,Z), X indicates the lower limit of the numbers, Y indicates the higher limit of the numbers, and Z is the specified decimal places of random numbers.

For example, I want to generate some whole numbers between 50 and 1000, I can insert this formula =randomnumbers (50,1000,0); and insert random numbers between 50 and 100 with 2 decimal places with this formula =randomnumbers (50,100,2). See below screenshots:

Insert Random numbers without decimal places:
random integer numbers between 50 and 100
Insert Random numbers with 2 decimal places:
random numbers between 50 and 500 with 2 decimal places

    5. Try to accomplish the following with your prior knowledge of basic Excel programming. [6]
    5.1 Let’s say you’re interested in studying student attitudes toward climate change. If you
    wanted to randomly sample 50 students out of 643 at a local school, you would need
    to begin by creating a numbered list of all 643 students (student =1; student =2,
    student =3 and so forth). Then all you would need to do is to generate a set of random
    numbers with a range from 1 to 643. Use Excel to accomplish this task. Arrange your
    list from smallest to largest number.

    5.2 Although people sometimes confuse random assignment with random sampling, the
    two are really quite different. With random sampling, the goal is to choose a
    representative set of cases from the full population under consideration. With random
    assignment, the goal is usually to give all participants and equal chance of being
    assigned to each experimental condition (regardless of how representative the
    participants are).

    Wow, cool, just what I was looking for. Seems Excel 2010 is kind of lame when it comes to options for random numbers.
