Excel/Autofill randomly

Advertisement


Question
I am entering a number in A1 and a charcter in A2. The character should be autfilled in selected range according to the number entered in A1.

Answer
1 - How do you want A2 to be filled up? Random as per the title of question...
2 - What do you want in A2 if A1 is blank?

NOTE: We can use RAND function of Excel to generate Random number and then restrict that number to 1-26. But you will need to maintain A-Z in one of the columns as Array. Will that be OK?
