 — expression function - random number [2016/09/14 14:19] (current) Line 1: Line 1: + ====== Random Number (Expression Function) ====== + ===== Purpose ===== + The **Random Number** function (RANDOM_NUMBER) generates a random number between the minimum and maximum value. + + {{:​rand_number_inital.png?​direct&​600|}} + + ===== Parameters ===== + The **Random String** function has two required parameter: + + ==== Minimum Value ==== + + Allowed Inputs: [[Field|field]] value or a number + + Either use the use the [[Query Builder]] to choose a field that contains a number to use or type a value to enter a number. + + ==== Maximum Value ==== + + Allowed Inputs: [[Field|field]] value or a number + + Either use the use the [[Query Builder]] to choose a field that contains a number or use type a value to enter a number. + + ===== Output ===== + + The output of the **Random Number** function returns a random number. The chances of two iterations of the **Random Number** function generating the same number more than once is based on the size of the range allowed. A minimum value of 0 and a maximum value of 1 would produce a 1 in 2 chance of getting the same value because there are only 2 possible values. + + === String Length === + If you want a specific number of digits set the minimum and maximum values accordingly. ​ For example if a length of 6 digits is required enter 100000 as min and 999999 as max and the function will always get a 6 digit number. + + ===== Example ===== + + RANDOM_NUMBER(1,​100) would result in a random number. Possibly "​33"​.
