    I personally use excell due nothing software I found.

    I usually just want to randomize a (long) list within a column, so I paste in excell and beside it (the next column) I create a formula that randomize a number by using random number generator then I sort the random number.

    The random number formula is
    Code:
    =RAND()
    
    
    
    Hope it would be useful, and excell do have limitation, so if you have long list, split it. Any better idea?
