I am using randbetween(-10,10) to generate numbers, Occasionally I get a 0, is there a way to modify this so that I never get 0?

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

Here is another way...

=RIGHT(-1,1+(RAND()<0.5))*RANDBETWEEN(1,10)

and another way using one less function call...

=INDEX({-10,-9,-8,-7,-6,-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10},RANDBETWEEN(1,20))
