    Random selection from list without repetition

    Hi all,

    What I have is a column of 36 data items (all strings), what I need to do is select groups of 8 data items randomly from the list and copy them into a series of 8 cell ranges, with no repetition in the group and no groups of 8 being identical (for these purposes the same 8 items in a different order counts as identical).

    Any assistance would be much appreciated... Any clarification required, please ask away.

    Cheers

    Matt

    I have a file on my site that demonstrates various methods of selecting unique number of items from a list.
