# Modify working code to expand the output.

#### L. Howard

This first code works excellent.

The code below it is my attempt to modify that working code to produce six 'blocks' one below the next, with the random sorted numbers incremented by 20 for each column to continue on to the last block.

Starts at 1 - 21 in first block first column so the last column in the sixth block would be 221 - 276. (hope I got the math correct)

The six lines that are commented out in the second code are the rows and MyCol is the column the subsequent blocks should be in.

I am trying to increment rowUp and rowDn for the WorksheetFunction.Transpose(b)
output. As it is the output is strange and I cannot figure how or where to make my adjustments.

Thanks,
Howard

I don't know if i really understood your question.

Sub Randomizer()
Dim a(19) As Variant, b, c, d, e, f
Dim Small As Integer, Big As Integer
Dim i As Long, j As Long, n As Long, k As Long
Dim MyCol As Long, myRow As Long

MyCol = 1
For n = 1 To 101 Step 20
Small = n
Big = Small + 19
j = 0
For i = Small To Big
a(j) = i
j = j + 1
Next
b = a: Randomize
d = UBound(b)
For c = 0 To d
e = Int(d * Rnd) + 1
f = b(c): b(c) = b(e): b(e) = f
Next

Cells(n + k, MyCol) _
.Resize(rowsize:=20) = WorksheetFunction.Transpose(b)
k = k + 1
Next
End Sub

Hi Claus, thanks for taking a look.

The code did not do as I need and I am just as lost to adapt it as the other original working code.

Here is a link with the format I need. The set of randomly placed numbers in the block with the border is what your original code returns, which is great.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/gjiom5mm30dklbp/Book3 Example Format.xlsm

My need is for it to do the same with the other five blocks where you can see the numbers are in sequence. Each of those twenty numbers in all cases need to be randomly placed like the Bordered box with each running of the code.

Hope this makes more sense.

Thanks.
Howard

Now that is a work of art!! Not only does it do MORE but there is less code.

Thanks, Claus. Never cease to amaze.

First the output goes from column 3 to 13 each second column. Then the
same thing is repeated 22 rows down and so on.
If you recognize the regularities in the structure of a table it is easy
to write a loop.
