    Generating a random number

    I need to generate a list of random numbers that are between 1 and 2, to 2 decimal places.

    How can I use RANDBETWEEN to do this please?

    Re: Generating a random number

    Try this:

    =RANDBETWEEN(100,200)/100

    Hope this helps.

    Like this:

    =RANDBETWEEN(100,200)/100

    Make sure the cell formatting is set to two decimal places.
