In a particular form, I want to automatically generate receipt numbers within certain range. The users should be prompted to enter the lower limit and upper limit and the automatic generation of  numbers should be within these limits. Please give me some coding guidelines.

Are you looking for a sequential list of the numbers in the range, a random list of numbers, or a single number to be returned?

LNum=inputbox$("Please enter lower number")
HNum=inputbox$("Please enter High number")
if (lnum<>"" and hnum <>"" and lnum<hnum) then
   dim i as long
   for i= LNum to HNum
      debug.print i
   next i
end if
