    Red face Database & Random Numbers

    Hi everybody
    I am hoping somone can help me with this problem for college.

    I have a database in Access and I need to extract Random records for a quiz. The way that I have done the random does work with the database as it is, but we have to allow the player to add to the database from the quiz which I have also been able to sort out.
    My problem is that I don't know how to write the code so that the random takes into consideration all the records and not just the original ones.

    My database currently has 111 records and I have used that for the randomize - RndNo = Int(Rnd * 111) + 1 - and it works fine, but I could end up with 120 + records.

    I tried using UBound and LBound but just made a mess of it.

    Can anybody help please, this assignment is finished but for this.

    instead of hard-coding the number 111 in your code use recordset.recordCount
