    Exclamation Randomly selecting number from a list of numbers

    I am trying to set up a "daily tip" msg box for using a complicated spreadsheet I have designed. I have about 65 tips typed up, and each one is assigned a number. (1-65) Is I wast to ask the user if they would like to see the daily tip, and if yes then have excel randomly select one of the numbers (1-65) and show that numbers corrosponding tip.
    Any ideas?

    Try =VLOOKUP(RANDBETWEEN(1,65), range, 2, FALSE)
