    Wanting to create a random word generator that will not double up the random word

    Hey i was looking at creating a random word generator that does not double up on words, so when i click a command button on sheet 1, it pulls a word from sheet 2 and displays it underneath the command button on sheet 1.
    Please help as i am stuck on the code. i have got a random word generator but it doubles up.

    That's not random, that's either sequential or some other fixed pattern.

    Let me see if I have this right: If you have a list of 10 words then with 10 "New word" button clicks you want to see every word in the list appear once but in random order - no repeats. On the 11th "New word" button click you start the whole process over so that over the 11th to 20th "New Word" button clicks you again want to see every word in the list appear once but in random order and so on and so on.

    I have modified your code just to illustrate the principle If your list of words is long this code will be inefficient and you will need a less simplistic approach.

    Here is your modified code:
