    Random Text from Table

    Hello,

    Does anyone know if it possible to create a list of names in MSword and randomly draw on that list?

    Ex:

    John
    Jack
    Jill
    Bill


    Formula returns names at random


    Here's what it looks like in excel,
    =INDEX(C11:C32,RANDBETWEEN(1,COUNTA(C11:C32)),1)

    Thank You

    I don't know of a way to do this using Word unless you either do it
    - with a macro or
    - as an Excel link or
    - as perhaps as part of a mail merge from Excel

    Can you explain why you want to do this so we can suggest a possible solution that meets your needs?
