One way would be to put this formula in a blank column in the first row


 copy down to the end of the data then sort all the data, using the new column as the sort criteria (ascending or descending - doesn't  matter)

That will give you a random sort

regards, barry
..or you could sort by different columns as well.

otherwise as barryhoudini noted, the =RAND() should accomplish what you want.
