Looking for a function or whatever that will give a random number between two numbers.

So, for example, if i enter, a 1 and a 10, it would return a random number between 1 and 10.

RANDBETWEEN requires the Analysis ToolPak Add-In in Excel 2003 and earlier which is not always desired.

You're right, guess I'm kind of used to most people having Excel 2007 or later.
