Hellow all,

I need to create a random number of 10 digits (member id). But the number must not start with a zero.

How can this be done.

greetz,

Hi.,

The random number generated is a 32bit integer. That limits it to 9 digits maximum. Of course you could just stick two 5 digit randoms together. They are random after all...

echo mt_rand(10000,99999) . mt_rand(10000,99999) ;
