How to randomly sort cells in a column or range in Excel?

You may need to randomly sort cells in a selection in Microsoft Excel. The following ways will help you easily randomize cells of a range quickly.

Sort cells in each column of a range randomly with Rand function and Sort command
Easily sort cells in each column or row of a range randomly with Kutools for Excel
Easily sort entire rows or columns of a range randomly with Kutools for Excel
Easily sort all cells in a range randomly with Kutools for Excel


Sort cells in each column of a range randomly with Rand function and Sort command

We can use Microsoft Excel's Rand function and Sort command to sort cells in each column of a range randomly with following steps:

1. Insert a help column before the range you will sort cells randomly.

2. Enter formuls =RAND( ) into the first cell of the help column, then drag the Fill Handle down to other cells (Note: The Rand function will recalculate every time, so you will get different random numbers from cell A1 to A6 in this case). See screenshot:

3. Select this new table (A1:E6), and click Data > Sort.

3. In the Sort dialog box, select Column A from the Sort by drop down list, and then click the OK button. See screenshot:

4. You can delete or hide the help column as you need.

5. Insert columns before Column C, Column D, and Column E, and repeat Step 2 to 4 to get a new table with random order in each column, see screenshot:

Notes:

1. This method requires users to repeatedly insert random numbers and sort. It will be boring if you need to sort cells in a big selection at random.

2. This method will only sort cells in each column at random, and it won't shuffle cells from different columns.
