Random Records. Top X Records. Randomize.
In this video, I will show you how to select any number of random records using a simple query in your Microsoft Access database.
Brad from Langley, Oklahoma (a Platinum Member) asks: I'm trying to figure out how to build a form to generate random lists from our clients. We do drug testing for companies, and we have to randomly pick 20% of each company's employees for testing.
Members will learn how to work with random numbers using VBA. I will show a technique to make the random numbers more "truly" random based on external input instead of relying completely on the pseudo-random number generator in the computer. We'll also see how to get random numbers from a web-based API.
