Hi

This is going to give you some punctuation characters but may get you started.

=LEFT(CONCATENATE(CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90)),CHAR(RANDBETWEEN(48,90))),RANDBETWEEN(6,12))

Hi klewis:

In the following, I had a little play with what you are trying to do ...
Book1
ABCD
1
2236
310K3K777K
467
567
667
710K
812
912
1011L
1114O
1210K
1313N
14
Sheet6


I used two helper columns A and B for some intermediary values. Would something like this work for you?
