Initializes the random-number generator.
The number argument can be any valid numeric expression.
uses number to initialize the Rnd
function's random-number generator, giving it a new seed value. If you omit number, the value returned by the system timer is used as the new seed value.
is not used, the Rnd
function (with no arguments) uses the same number as a seed the first time it is called, and thereafter uses the last generated number as a seed value.
The following example illustrates use of the Randomize
Dim MyValue, Response
Randomize ' Initialize random-number generator.
MyValue = Int((6 * Rnd) + 1) ' Generate random value between 1 and 6.
To repeat sequences of random numbers, call Rnd
with a negative argument immediately before using Randomize
with a numeric argument. Using Randomize
with the same value for number does not repeat the previous sequence.
