Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If it is Excel – do you know the start and end row number of the column? Then you can set up Random number generator: =TRUNC(RAND()*(High-Low)+Low) Note: Low & High are the column row references.
You now may use this number as the random row number & get the corresponding value.
