Learn how to use the Access Rnd function with syntax and examples.
The Microsoft Access Rnd function allows you to generate a random number (integer value). You can specify the random number to be a value between 2 user-specified numbers.
The syntax for the Microsoft Access Rnd function is:
Int ((upperbound - lowerbound + 1) * Rnd + lowerbound)
upperbound is the highest value that the random number can be.
lowerbound is the lowest value that the random number can be.
The Rnd function can be used in the following versions of Microsoft Access:
Int ((6 - 1 + 1) * Rnd + 1) Result: random number between 1 and 6 Int ((200 - 150 + 1) * Rnd + 150) Result: random number between 150 and 200 Int ((999 - 100 + 1) * Rnd + 100) Result: random number between 100 and 999
The Rnd function can be used in VBA code in Microsoft Access. For example:
Dim LRandomNumber As Integer LRandomNumber = Int ((300 - 200 + 1) * Rnd + 200)
In this example, the variable called LRandomNumber would now contain a random number between 200 and 300.
You can also use the Rnd function in a query in Microsoft Access.
