# Random number between two numbers

Figure 1. of the Randbetween Function in Excel.

The Excel Randbetween Function determines a random  number integer between the number range we have specified. This tutorial will step through the process of generating random numbers that fall between two specified values

## Generic Formula

`=RANDBETWEEN(lower,upper)`

The Randbetween operation syntax consists of the following arguments;

• Lower (required) – The smallest number integer within the range we have specified.
• Upper (required) – The largest number integer within the range we have specified.

## How to use the Randbetween Function in Excel.

In the event that we are required to generate random number integers between 1-100, follow these simple steps;

1. Select any cell in our Excel sheet. In the example illustrated below we have selected cell A1.
2. In cell A2, insert the following formula `=RANDBETWEEN(1,100)`
