    1. Open Microsoft Excel 2007, and start a new, blank spreadsheet or open an existing spreadsheet from your files into which you want to generate a random number.

    2. Click the cell you want to generate a random number into so it is selected. The cell will have a thick black line outlining it.

    3. Type "=RAND()" (no quotations) into the "Formula" text box near the top of the Excel screen. This is the function that instructs Excel to enter a random number between 0 and 1 into the selected cell.

    4. Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard. The random number will be generated into the selected cell and you will be taken to the cell beneath it.

    5. Continue the process of generating random numbers into your Excel cells using the same method as outlined above.
