    Copied from msdn...<BR><BR>Rnd Function<BR>Returns a random number.<BR><BR>Rnd[(number)]<BR><BR>The number argument can be any valid numeric expression.<BR><BR>Remarks<BR>The Rnd function returns a value less than 1 but greater than or equal to 0. The value of number determines how Rnd generates a random number:<BR><BR>If number is Rnd generates <BR>Less than zero The same number every time, using number as the seed. <BR>Greater than zero The next random number in the sequence. <BR>Equal to zero The most recently generated number. <BR>Not supplied The next random number in the sequence. <BR><BR><BR>For any given initial seed, the same number sequence is generated because each successive call to the Rnd function uses the previous number as a seed for the next number in the sequence.<BR><BR>Before calling Rnd, use the Randomize statement without an argument to initialize the random-number generator with a seed based on the system timer.<BR><BR>To produce random integers in a given range, use this formula: <BR><BR>Int((upperbound - lowerbound + 1) * Rnd + lowerbound)<BR>Here, upperbound is the highest number in the range, and lowerbound is the lowest number in the range.<BR><BR>Note 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.<BR>
