As you understand, this list is far from being complete. All these jobs, however easy they may seem, just cannot be done by yourself. Otherwise, how can you be sure that the results are really random? :) The Random Sorter for Excel is absolutely unbiased and very quick! You just select a range, choose the action - to shuffle or to select - and enjoy the results!

Shuffle cells, columns, rows

The Shuffle (sort randomly) option hardly needs any explanations. The Random Sorter add-in can mix values in rows, columns or in a selected range, and put them in a random order.

You simply choose how exactly you want to shuffle your data in Excel and click Shuffle. The add-in can sort randomly cells in each row or column, change the arrangement of entire rows or columns, or simply mix up all cells in the selected range.

If your table has headers, don't forget to tick the Exclude header rows checkbox. You can strike off as many of them as you like. For more details see How to randomly sort cells in rows, columns and a range.

Random selection

Using this option you can instantly get a random selection from a set of your Excel data. Imagine that you have a long list of names and you want to randomly select a certain number from the list. It takes no more than just a few seconds with our Random Sorter for Excel.

First you specify whether you want to pick individual cells, entire rows, or columns. Then decide if you want to select some percentage of data or an exact number of rows, columns or cells. Click the Select button and voila, here you go!
