Randomize Statement Example
This example uses the Randomize statement to initialize the random-number generator. Because the number argument has been omitted, Randomize uses the return value from the Timer function as the new seed value.

Dim MyValue
Randomize   ' Initialize random-number generator.

MyValue = Int((6 * Rnd) + 1)   ' Generate random value between 1 and 6.
