Generating Multiple Choice Tests
I currently use Access 2003 to create tests. I am looking to use a grouping
and random sampling method to improve efficiency. In as much that I use
access to create tests now, is VBA an appropriate platform for randomizing
and group sampling or should I go to an independent language. Any advice
will be greatly appreciated.

Nothing as easy as the outlining within MSWord.
Typing the numbers is one way (not very appealing). Using a formula based on
the values in the other cells may work--if you can pickout something that would
indicate the level--not very nice, either.

I have an excel spreadsheet with 4 columns.
the first two columns contains numbers which will never change
the third column starts off with 0 (zero) and is repeated for 255 rows
then on the 256 row it needs to change to 1 (so basically increment by
1 every 255 rows) the fourth column starts at 0 (zero) and counts up
to 255 but then needs to reset it self back to 0 on the 256 row.
