hello experts

i need to generate a string of random characters that will be a password for users signing up to my site. after logging in with the random password, they will be forced to change it. I'm still new when it comes to asp, but I know there is a Randomize() function that'll return random numbers. I imagine I'll have to create a character set, then randomly pick different spots within that character set to get a random string of letters/numbers, but I'm not sure how to go about that.

TIA
