#### RAND and only 1 decimal

```I want to make a random number in a cell with the RAND function and then use
it in a calculation.  Right now it goes to several decimal place and I need
it to only have one decimal in the calculation.

How can I do this?

Ostensibly, ROUNDDOWN(RAND(),1).  However, that might not be the right thing

That would be the right thing to do if you are trying to select a random
factor from the following list of ten:  0.0, 0.1, 0.2,..., 0.9.

(Note that I used ROUNDDOWN, not ROUND.  That preserves the expectation that
RAND returns a result from and including zero up to but excluding one.  That
expectation is often critical to the use of RAND in most formulas.  If you
use ROUND instead, you are effectively selecting from a list of 11, to wit:
0.0, 0.1, 0.2,..., 1.0.)

But I wonder if you are really using RAND() as a factor in some larger
expression, and you wish the result of the entire expression to be limited
to one decimal place.  In that case, you probably want to round (or round
down) the result of the entire expression.  For example:

=ROUND(A1 + A2*RAND(), 1)

or at least

=A1 + ROUND(A2*RAND(),1)

The timing of when to round (or round down) can have a major impact on the
outcome, depending the magnitude of numbers.  Consider the example where A2
is 33 and RAND() returns about 0.15.

1. A2*ROUND(RAND(),1) is 6.6.
2. A2*ROUNDDOWN(RAND(),1) is 3.3.
3. ROUND(A2*RAND(),1) is 5.0.

The point is:  you will get a more robust range of A2*RAND() when you delay
rounding as opposed to rounding (down) RAND first.

```>=ROUND(RAND(),1)

That could possibly return a result of 1 if RAND() = something like
0.9999999999999999.

Maybe something like this:

=TRUNC(RAND(),1)

But that can also return a result of 0. Is 0 a valid number for your
application?

To clarify, if you do A2*ROUND(RAND(),1), you are limiting the result of the
entire expression to 0, 3.3, 6.6, 9.9, 13.2, 16.5, 19.8, 23.1, 26.4, 29.7
and 33.

With ROUND(A2*RAND(),1), the result will be any of 331 values from 0.0, 0.1,
0.2,..., 32.8, 32.9 and 33.0.  That is usually what we want.

```Hello,

I suggest to use my UDF RndDecPlace:
http://sulprobil.com/html/rnddecplace.html

You can define easily whether to start with 0.0 or 0.1 and whether to
stop with 0.9 or 1.0...

How to assign Spit to 1-origined array?

1.2 Proxy Dll and the .NET Framework 1.0
Is the version 1.0 Microsoft.CRM.Proxy.dll compatible with MS CRM 1.2 ? I've got an application using the CRM proxy running on the .NET Framework 1.0. I want to know what steps I need to take to upgrade the application to CRM 1.2. If the 1.2 proxy is required (which I assume it is) then I'll need to recompile the application - however from what I understand the proxy is only built for the 1.1 Framework. Can anybody confirm this? (I don't see any reason why Microsoft doesn't suppy a 1.2 proxy for the 1.0 Framework?!). Thanks a million, Anil Anil, I believe you should be ab...

USB Issue with WinXP?
I have a bit of a problem with WinXP telling me that one of my USB devices would operate faster if it was connected to a Hi-Speed USB 2 port. But it does not ID the device in question.

Help!! I would like to demote one domain controller of two leaving me with only one domain controller. The problem is i have Exchange 2003 in the domain which is not necessarily a problem. I am concerned that by demoting the backup domain server that there will be a problem with connectivity with exchange. Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions? Please let me know. Note: the primary domain controller does the Global cataloging and config so this should be not problem right? Hi Rox, AD doesn't really have PDC and BDC like earlier versions of windows. You can certainly dem...

Any new solutions for 10.1.6 update problems
Everyone here runs Office X/Mac OS 10.3.6 and had (at least) the PowerPoint file-opening problems (PowerPoint cannot read..., etc.) Anything new - besides the solution of going back down to 10.1.5. It's been a couple of weeks. Thanks. Hi, I'm using 10.3.6 with PowerPoint and am not experiencing file opening troubles with PowerPoint. What happens exactly when you try to open files? Have you done any troubleshooting, such as running Disk Utility to repair permissions or running DiskWarrior to repair your operating system? -Jim Gordon Mac MVP All responses should be made to th...
